"Bad ju-ju! The 2100/2200 pump rods have always had those *&^%$ compressible plastic links. Early models the compressible links were only a bit over half of overall length of the pump rod but in current production the whole thing is made of plastic."
Ewwww ick. The piston is ALL plastic now? OK, so they'll need a new metal piston.
On the other hand.... A modern 1400-ish pump rifle with a plastic piston would still be better than yet another version of the Quest.
We'll just need longer rods to do Steve in NC's piston stuffing mod! LOL
