Hi all - No pics for this, just a couple simple things. I just bought a Crosman Vantage Nitro in .177 and put in the 10mm trigger adj screw per Kenny's Y-tube vid from myairgunreviews. I've saved several of his vids for reference. Also, I have a non-PAL Ruger Blackhawk that had a 'recessed' breech seal, about 5 years old. I cut a bit of foil from a coffee can 'seal' to make a shim - about .010 so that brings the seal to +.007-8 I guess. One last thing, the lever 'channels' in the stocks of both were very sharp so I 'broke' the edges with a fine file. Makes a more comfy hold. :wink: The Vantage stock is stained what I term baby-s*** brown, not a natural wood colour I've ever seen. And is a sort of matte finish as well. That's another project coming soon ...


Hi and welcome! Good idea for the breach seal shim. But beware, it's one project, than another, than another... it's endless :twisted: :lol:

Yes absolutely - very nicely made pistol. Doesn't the shine scare the squirrels away? :wink:

Tomorrow it's outdoors with the air guns.(I think) Might be .22's?
I'll take the Gauntlet and Brocock .22's.

I sure hope so because shaking my fist at them doesn't seem to do anything.

Picked up a new SPMS SBR Full auto and shot it with my son. It was an awesome time. Super fun BB gun and accurate in semi auto mode.

I installed a lane mk9 regulator in my aa s410 tdr yesterday, I should have gone to the range today to see how much of an improvement it is over an altaros.

I made a punch to make wads to reload my Trapmaster's shells, and a brass seating tool to install them.

Took out Benjamin Classic, Ruger Airhawk and Diana 350 Magnum, all in .22. Tried different pellets to find ONE that shot well. Crosman domed and hollow point (14.3), Stoeger XMagnum (17.13 H&N?), JSB (13.43, 14.35, 15.89, 18.13).
All really liked the JSB 15.89, none felt the loving of Crosman, was hoping for the cheap date. Crosman was the quickest in all guns but the Diana 350 with the most energy. Will be ordering JSB Exact Jumbos from now on.

In testing 100's of shots, 350 broke the scope.

Poor scope... It looks really hard to find a scope to stand the magnum power ?!

Put scope back together once, just never adjusted anything or it would fall apart. Been looking at Wes's website for Discovery scopes, specifically for Magnum springers. Shots from 10-65yds.

Not something I did, but something I'll be able to do. Just received today two 1-lb bags of tungsten disulphide 0.3 microns powder, so I'll be able to mix my own lubricating paste for when I'll tune and repair airguns. I should be good for life with that supply!
