I hate to wear glasses during day unless doing some computer screen or to see what my fingers doing.
For this same reason I prefer to have 2-3-4 mags preloaded instead of glasses ON - glasses OFF with single loading.

I just got a 12 shot mag to test for the PP750. I'll get a bunch soon as well as Stormrider/Bandit/Chaser mags.
These would be a good candidate for 25 cal 8)

I am still looking for the right optical solution for the PP750.
I really want to try this 10x30 Prismatic Scope from MTC:

While the .25 is my favourite hunting/pesting caliber, it's probably too much to hope for in the PP750.
I'd settle for a really nice .22 cal barrel that would run the full length of the shroud.

Anyone else find the cocking lever to be very hard/heavy to operate?
I'm afraid I'm going to bust the damned thing...

I have a Sig combo - red dot with a x6 magnifier, very comfortable in the field. I am not sure how would I like the fixed 10x, but again that power is relative to hunting more. The Bravo 5 (x5) is in my way expecting it hopefully before this years ends. I had a chance to compare red dots and prism sights and somehow I like the prism scope better vs red dot, maybe I keep both maybe not.

Back to PP750, nothing is wrong with the cocking lever, the internals are rubbing also the hammer spring is way to strong.
I just toke the cocking apart and polished the internals...way better but still room to improve. Also got some lighter springs (I did not wanted to clip that strong spring) from Mcmaster. The cocking lever is much easier to pull now but some light scraping metal on metal is still noticeable....
I saw some pictures over @ GTA that a fella did some undercut on the hammer head also on the bolt stud that catches against hammer sear ledge, to eliminate binding/tipping, because that is happening here as well. That will be my next to visit my buddy with a lathe.
Also with a lighter spring now most likely I will need some brass hammer weight.

I find my cocking lever is a little stiff as well and sometimes the pellet seems to stick and I have to give the lever a little "tap" in order to load it (I think that part is a magazine issue). Are there any guides for taking the 750 apart to clean the insides for someone who has never opened a PCP?

The magazine has a sharp edge where the pellet comes out. I used a dremel and small stone bit to smooth out the transition. No more pellets hanging up. I haven’t seen a how to guide but it’s fairly simple. Just remember to take the air out before starting to take stuff apart.

How long of a barrel are you looking for? I could machine one to fit if you’re interested , I just don’t have any .22 cal barrels now so it would take a bit to get it shipped here.

I mentioned 4 posts up, I would be interested in a .22 Barrel that runs the full length of the non functional shroud.
I have a .22 cal Chaser Carbine Barrel here; could you machine that up to fit the PP750 and crown it for me Hobbyman?

Finally got a chance to take the magazine apart. Did a little touch up with a chain saw file ;-), worked surprisingly well. Pellets are sliding into the chamber with very little effort. Thanks for the tip.
