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 That was one of the arguments proposed....

1. The molecular velocity stat' most likely to be relevant is, not the average velocity, but the RMS velocity, since this is the one that corresponds to average kinetic energy.

2. An air temperature of 40C = 104F produces an RMS velocity of 519m/s = 1703fps, and air reservoirs are often this warm (or even far warmer) after a recent fill.

3. There are many ways to inadvertently perturb the calibration of the readings from a Shootin' Chrony chronograph by 6% (or more), and 1750/1650 = 1.06.
