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.
yes the valve looks like that, but does have a ball bearing looking thing in the rear part of the valve. No flat sides on stem. I was tempted to solder that hole up before assembling. Im not really into taking pictures or I think of it after. Other than the lake of FPS it shoot great. I have found 2 pellets it really likes of the rest with the williams peep sight it shoots 8 grain poly mags in the 1/2 to 7/8 groups size along with some beeman wad cutters. It will shoot consistant 1/2 groups of the rest @ 25 yards with 5 to 8 pumps if I take the time to weigh out the pellets and inspect the skerts.
This gun was bought new buy the privious owner. He claims it just stopped pumping up one day. Claimed it was never apart ????? He had left it the corner of his garage since about 2002ish It was covered in a dusty crudy film, not so much of a whisp of pump...I had never seen a 397 or 392 but when I seen the brass barrel I had a feeling it could be saved....
