Dag Evert's "American Classic"

As mentioned on the forum, heres a picture I took some time back, with natural winter daylight. A 2100, and a 1377, both guns have been recrowned, and had their trigger parts shimmed for play, contact surfaces stoned, and trigger springs somewhat reduced within safe limits. The 2100 has had its barrel shimmed with tape to remove play.
Both guns give great accuracy for the money if they are given good pellets!
The combination of pellets and guns in the picture represents something close to my boyhood dreams:-)

Response to Box ( er.... plastic shrink ) stock 2240 ?

Upped the hammer spring, and a new powerlet.
Took 5 shots to pierce the powerlet.
Fastest I see is 392.

Called Crosman. Told her I'd had the gun about 10 minutes before
I polished the sear, and changed the trigger spring.
Probably blew my warranty, huh ?
She asked me if I had all the pieces parts, and could put it back
the way it was shipped, except for the polish on the sear and trigger of course.
I said yes, I could. She said they would honor their warranty for the full year,
and gave me all the info how to send it back to Crosman, etc.

She then asked where I bought it, and the serial number. I said Amazon.com.
She suggested I try an exchange through Amazon.
My exchange period expired two days ago. Damn !
Anyhow, I tried Amazon live chat. Told the guy it mostly works, but not completely,
and the lady at Crosman agrees it's "not right."
He asked me what I wanted. I responded an exact replacement. Another 2240.
He said it should be here Saturday, no charge. ( it's Thursday today )
Then he gave me a link to return the one I have.
The link is a parcel post pre-paid shipping label !!

SO, we don't know exactly why this one took 46 shots to pierce a powerlet,
five shots with near double the hammer spring, and still shoots below 400 fps,
and never will really, but we have a replacement on the way, an EXTREMELY high
recommendation for Amazon.com from me, and a very happy Crosman customer even
if the replacement turns out the same.

Warranty, even after I told 'em I dinked with it's internals. Unheard of !
