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.
I've been shooting in the desert for the past 12 years now
with springers, rams, Co2's, and pumpers, all shoot with zero
problems. The only thing I do different is only shoot Co2's and
rams in the heat. In extreme heat(100+ degrees) the moly in the springers tend to
"melt" because of the heat and will run past the piston seal causing dieseling.
So to stop this from happening, always put the rifle in the car with the barrel pointing
up when not shooting, and always point the barrel up when cocking the gun.
