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.

Came with a ridiculously rough trigger, so the first hour I was already modifying that.
Probably blew the warranty ?

Anyhow, with absolutely no "power mods" and shooting Crosman Premier 14.3 grain pellets, an acoustical cronograph shows an average of around 317 feet per second.
I've seen a high of 388, and a low of 241 ( usually the first shot ) but never anything close to the advertised claimed 460.

Is there some ultra-light pellet that does produce 460, or have I got a defective piece ?

Should also note that the first powerlet took six shots to pierce, and the second ( the one in it now ) took an astounding 46 shots to pierce the powerlet.

It seems to me that something's rotten in Denmark, but I could be wrong.
What's your experience with a stock 2240 and Crosman Premier Ultra Magnum pellets on a 70 degree spring day ?

This gun is also surprisingly quiet compared to the reviews. ( a not unpleasant surprise )

Thanks....
