this winter, i will;

take apart my 500x, clean and re-lube the internals, will re-scope and sight it, get her ready for the next outdoor shooting season

take apart the browning leverage and inspect the internals, maybe clean and lube job as well, plug the piston hole(if i find one), spring seems to be fine from what i'm getting, would like to take apart the trigger group and find out why the safety is not working as it should, hesitating to fiddle on that last part


take apart my model 61, clean the internals, and depending on what i find, maybe replace the piston seal, re-blue the externals, drill and tap two holes on top of the receiver to tie down a weaver rail, and fit a small scope for what is a small gun, maybe a leapers bug buster

take apart the crosman raven and ruger airhawk, and put those in the bin of shame(AKA parts bin)

try to find either a laser, red dot, or pistol scope to fit the 357, would like to install a metal barrel, the plastic one has a loose rail, can't be good in holding zero

that is all

Several projects this winter, as usual.... I plan to rebarrel my 2260 and 2560 HPAs with LW barrels.... I have a .357 barrrel for my Disco Double, and a new .217 airgun barrel coming for it as well.... The Hayabusa is getting a new valve in the .308/.357 version.... and then I will be converting it to a .410 shotgun / .457 rifle as well....

Yes, I have a lot planned this winter.... :mrgreen:

Projects are- for my 97kt are: Get it stripped down & a touch of moly here & there, buy the Rowan Engineering parts (trigger, trigger guard, cocking lever aid). Just bling for the rifle. Install them. Debate on a Vortek/Vmach/Maccari tune kit :lol:. If I get 1, install that.

Get a gun cabinet! (Will help my paranoia whenever I leave the house).

Get a new high quality springer & Disco. To help justify gun cabinet :lol:. Besides I want another HW or a Diana to compliment my new 97kt, its lonely sitting beside a couple Crosman/Benjamins.

Get a Tko, either get that manual index magazine or a bnm breech for the Disco.

Figure what HW/Diana gun I want, do the usually inspection/clean/lube. Possibly tune kit that too :roll:

Lastly, figure out how to exactly shim the alive jam spring to see if that fixes my Trail.

Hopefully I can all that before spring!

1) Converting my 2260 HPA to a rear-cocking, LW barreled .25 cal (with the help of a few CAF members :wink: )
2) Custom 22xx/Disco hybrid repeater - .22 cal LW, shortened Disco tube, etc...Will start out as a PCP, but may end up regulated
3) Finish refurbishing one of my MK I's which has been tore apart for months now :oops:

And if I get those done maybe some tweaks/mods on my P-17

Finish polishing up a 2240 and do a 177 barrel for it also.
Playing with a Beeman P17 and did a couple of mods from the forum and also tried a 22 caliber barrel in it. Shoots just over 300 fps with the 22 barrel and want toget it to 350.

Before the end of December I will have cleaned and lubed my four guns and stored them in the gun locker.

January through March I'll be in Arizona (yup, I'm retired) playing 40 softball games.

The real "project" will be my first time (and subsequent) visit(s) to Air Guns of Arizona to check out their facility and test fire a bunch of AGs so I can narrow down my list of air guns to buy next Spring. I will buy Canadian, though.

Lucky SnowBird!
I still have a place in eastern Washington State and keep most of my Powderburners there. Need to go see them in May when a Nephew graduates high school!
