Short list, as the gun is slowly becoming my go to......
first thing, and probably the biggest, is the SSR efforts arent that great. At first blush you'd think that the company that gave us the mousefart quiet Mrod could have easily mae the Prod the same. But thinki it thru a little more and you'll see some of the reaon they didnt. The Mrod barrel is almost twice as long, the Mrod shroud is much longer than the barrel, and almost twice the diameter of the Prod shroud. I suppose a breech riser and a longer bigger diameter shroud could help, but then there are aesthetic, enginerring and manufactoring issues to contend with
next is the stock, grip frame and inherent ergonomics of it. I did shorten mine 2 inches, added a aluminum butt plate, and an adjustable cheek piece. Also did some mods to the stock's grip to help the feel in your hand. those mods go a long way to making the gun _very_ comfortable to shoot and quick handling. The factory offereing, out of the box, is too long, too much drop for scope use and uncomfortable in the hand.(I should note that the stock and grip ergos have been a complaint of mine since I got my 2250.)
And lastly, the trigger. Dont get me wrong, the trigger is great, its adjustable, and gives good feedback as to the shot, breaks crisp and clean. My issue with it is the same with the 13xx and the 22xx guns.. .the blade is too narrow. So now I have to take the blade out, file and cut it to accept a trigger shoe (red, naturally).
I understand why Crosman made the decisions they did to produce the gun. And if this is all I have to whine about, they're doing pretty good. Now if we could get Rob Taylor to make some Prod-sized Teryx stocks.......
