Response to Guy trying to setup a Crosman Maximus for FT
of Crosman, and he said the Maximus is basically a Disco with less expensive parts internally. It was to bring a PCP in at a low price.
Some guys, including myself, have modded them with regulators, Challanger barrels, and such to make the Disco an entry level PCP at Field Target clubs. We have a tinkerer at our club who did this, then went to a Challanger. He pumped the Challanger to shoot at around 18FPE.....!
So IMHO, it would take a good bit of tinkering with the Maximus to get it to be a competitive rifle in FT. The Challanger is the better way, as it requires Less to get it FT worthy. It already has a match LW choked barrel and is super accurate coming from 10 meter...
Like Craig said, you can pick up a used one sometimes on the classified... I know I won't be parting with mine, I like it that much.....
