Scot Laughlin's Custom All Weather 2260

2260 with short crosman receiver atop a mini riser made from aluminum tube. Barrel is a 2200 soda straw
tensioned inside a titanium golf club shaft. Three screw mod to the trigger, bulk co2, SSP 250 rear cocking
striker assembly. Factory stock, reshaped, bedliner finish and stick on cheek piece. The idea was a weather
resistant light hunter for rainy days.
I've got a Cothran stainless receiver and gas tube waiting for me to get back to this one.

Response to its on my list

No I didn't need to heat the aluminum. If I remember correctly, I just bent the rod in a vice. no heat or anything.

Mig would be fine. A tig is a little cleaner weld, but either would work. Might even be able to braise the nut on too.

The butt plate is thin gauge steel with a nut welded on (like the plug) I capped that with a thin strip of maple. good luck.
