Hey everyone, been a long time.
Anyway, I was perusing on gun nutz and found this little gem. Maybe someone recognizes it? Old crosman medalist 1322 converted into a co2 target pistol. Beautiful job. Like it was built by a professional. Check out the pics! Sadly I don't have a gas cylinder for it.

So the custom adapter is made for a cylinder from a Walther cp3.
I don't know if they are a proprietary design or if it's common with other manufacturers. Even if I had a cylinder I still would need a fill adapter.

I plan to not repurpose/ hack this one up. I'll leave as is, hopefully I can shoot it somehow.

yes something like the cp3
but most tubes will allow you to drop in a cartridge and then pierce the co2
just like the 2240 for example
why did you not get the cylinder with it or remote line did you not ask
what is was set up for ?

I bought it from a guy who had a cp3 also, so the tanks stayed with his pistol. In hindsight I should have tried to get one. Figured I could make something work. It's not impossible I suppose.

Ohh not really sure about it and not familiar with it. I think it is custom made. Yep, I agree, it is such a beaut. Did not know that someone can do an amazing job like this. Will probably get mine done soon. Hope that it is not expensive so that I can purchase another pistol. I think you can easily buy a gas cylinder in any gun shop or even in several online markets or even websites. There are also other forums that sell part at an affordable price. Hope it helps. Also been planning to get other guns as well.

I have managed to find someone selling cylinder adapters that fit the threads on the gun. He wants $130 plus shipping each. Little expensive methinks. More than I paid for the gun...

Well, I did end up contacting gipetto here on the forum. Super knowledgeable guy with some sweet skills. He was kind enough to take on the creation of a PCP tube for the old 1322. Did a fantastic job. Definitely knows what he's doing.

I plan to polish up the tube and try some cold blue. Probably the barrel and receiver too.

Did some quick testing, I figure it'll be easy to tune. Small ports, light hammer strike.

I'm just going by what the pump reads. Not sure how accurate that is.
