I know I really need to get situated with all the airguns I own RIGHT NOW but as an addict, I'm looking to the future...
I've been wanting to get a cheap new .22 pump BUT Crosman no longer sells one besides the 392, which I'm planning to get later in the future.... I was looking at the Daisy 22sg but they aren't up to the speed of a 392 and that plastic pump lever worries me, unless they've already upgraded it... So my question....
Is is possible to turn a 2260 into a pump rifle using 766 (2100) parts that I have lieing around and how would I go about doing it? What would I need and what works? I know it's possible to do a PCP but that's future stuff that I'm not ready to jump into just yet....

Considered converting a 1377 to a 1322? All you need to change a 1377 to a .22 is add a steel breech (the stock plastic breech might still work as a .22, but I would change it), .22 bolt, & .22 caliber barrel. Upgrade to a Flat Top Piston & Valve and you have a pretty good .22 pump for a bit over $100 depending on where you buy everything
1377 can be found between $35 to $65 / Steel breech is about $30 and can be ordered with a .22 bolt from crosman / aftermarket bolt between $12 to $20 / .22 barrel will be between $15 to $30 with most of that dependent on the length / FT Piston & Valve should run you between $25 to $45
That'l be lucky to find ,since Crosman stopped Producrtion od the .2260 Unless AB or Precision Pellet has one! Not too sure on Ac Customs,who seems to be outof stock,everytime I check them out or on the YF Classifieds. Good Luck anyway, Not to "rain on your Bar B Q!

Re: ???? making custom air rifle...

How about starting with a 1377, add a steel breach and longer barrel? To keep costs down you could use the Crosman plastic stock, to go fancy a custom wood stock would be real nice. Add a flat top piston and check out the other 1377 mods discussed on this forum. Personally I'd step it up to 22 cal if I was doing this. Last time I added up the parts to make such an animal I think it came to about $100, more if you get fancy. HTH
purchased the steel breeches and barrels from crosman scope and mount by Leapers
on Upper carbine in pic is 14" barrel .22 the lower is 18" .177 with Center
Point scope. both have home made widened triggers and the .22 has a ball bearing
contact with the sear, works great. Both have hand made solid kynar pistons which
seem to be holding up very well. Using stock piston cups. Valves were ported with
a bit more room inside and both have the poly tube port mod. The walnut grips match
the rest of the gun better than the picture shows.
Someday I might pay someone to build me a better one but this is to much fun to not
do it myself right now.
With all the knowledge and helps here on the forum its has been a fun ride so far
I see there are many directions in which I can go...

They reason I was looking at the 2260 is because of the wood stock...
airgunandy: Yea, I was thinking of converting a 2100 to a 22 but then I keep hearing about how you have to do extra work to seal these rifles up... Plus, I do actually own a Model 1 in good condition and two other rifles in that similar configuration and I haven't even attempted to fully seal those things up yet... Do you know anybody who makes stocks for those type of rifles?
m and Bruce: I did consider converting a 1377... I like the versatility of that style metal breech. I was just wondering if I could reuse the 2100 parts that I have laying around and thought maybe that the 2100 valve was suited more for a .22 cal, air volume wise. Do the 2260s use the same valve as the 1377?
James s: Those are very nice 13xx carbines...
Tom: I feel your pain man... The reason I was looking into the Daisy 22SG was because of the wooden stock... Did all the 992s have a plastic stock? I'll email you to see what you have...

... i converted a 2100 to .22 3 years ago, just 4 parts required ...

... found them thru Chet Pauls Airgun repair (559) 251-9687 / email: [email protected] Maybe Alan or JG Airguns have some of the parts, since Crosman didn't have them back then.
2200c007 barrel .22, 2200c003 barrel support, 2200-004 "magazine" and 2200b015 bolt .22. While you're at it, install the barrel stabilizer Muzzle Mack sells and recrown the soda straw barrel. It works great on 2100, 2200 and 1077's.
All other parts remain the same. Hard and accurate, never chronied it but will easily take out an iguana with one shot at 30 yds.
you're scared ? go get a dog ... I'd rather die standing than live on my knees

I've seen posts on other forums of wood stocks that guys have made for their 2100's. The old original wood stocked versions had a long bolt up through the butt stock to attach it to the receiver. The one-off stocks these guys made were carved to replicate the plastic stock in the way it mounts to the gun.
