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 Transfer port restrictions

OK...with a goal of 12 foot pounds and a tiny air volume of an estimated 44ccs, kept playing with the transfer port. Striker hit was running the carbine at 160-110BAR (or about 2350 to 1600psi.

Changed the tension UP a little bit (one pre
tension turn of the screw), swapped for a striker that was 10gr. Lighter, and changed the transfer port to .072 ( 5/64ths).

Which works out to:
25 feet per second = 628 603= 14 shots

So... 2350-1600 fps...44cc....20 shots...601fps average...call it a BAR/CC-FPE of about 10.

Just saying.

Is not a great long shot count, but it has a dinky air volume.
Efficiency of 10 is pretty good for a 12 foot pound gun (OK..call it 11.5 to 12.5 gun).

Suggestions:

1. Restrictive transferor port is USELESS if looking for maximum velocity.
2. The increase in shot count with a strangled down transfer port is VERY CLOSE to the same energy x shot count of a wide open transfer port...it just doles out the energy over a long time frame.
