Thanks for such an informative forum! I have a Crosman 2400KT that I'm enjoying a lot as well as a CP-1M, QB78, Gamo Shadow (that is one harsh son of a gun!), Daisy 853 from the CMP, as well as a number of hot rod Daisy lever action BB guns.

I appreciate you all having me over!

Regards, Mark

Welcome! I've also got a qb78 and a Cp-1m, so any tuning tips or sharing work done again would be great!

Hi and I spent some time reading all your posts on thehighroad. Very, very nice work, thank you.

I recently "re-discovered" BB rifles. Have an ongoing medical issue that precludes me from driving very much, so cannot get to my range easily.

I can shoot some of my guns indoors, but not many. Most are too powerful and noisy, so to stop myself from going crazy I started buying BB rifles to shoot indoors.

Have 2 499's and 7 others now, including Red Ryders, LiL Duke, Marlin Cowboy, a model 25 pump, and just ordered the Annie Oakley.

The 499's are freakishly accurate. Very low velocity but I dont really care. My indoor range is 27 feet or so and the 499's will knock the center out of a 10 meter target all day long. Easily.

I can shoot as long as i want indoors without bothering anyone and use the Avanti Match Grade (1050 count) BB's that I have found to be the most accurate in about everything I own that shoots BB's (30+ pistols).

Welcome to the forum :)

Hi ITGUY

Thank you for the kind words. That High Road thread has gotten awfully long, but I believe it contains more info on lever action Daisy BB guns in one place than anywhere else- thanks in large part to the participation of members who "took the ball and ran with it". I'm slowly working on a sort of table of contents so info on a particular model or modification can be more easily located.

Who would have thought that a simple spring swap- using a $4.00 Daisy spring- would turn the 499 into a 420 fps shooter, and without losing any accuracy? Or that a modified current production Red Ryder BB gun could shoot well over 400 fps?

I'm glad you have found a way to get in some trigger time without having to leave the house. And it's good to hear that BB guns have given you good service. They're often overlooked once we get into pellet guns and such but even though I have several of them, I still reach for my BB guns often and enjoy them immensely. Like you, I also have a pretty good drive to get to the range and it's nice to be able to sit on the back porch and shoot hanging targets, etc.

BTW, I'd really enjoy hearing your thoughts on the Annie Oakley and/or Duke BB gun! I've seen them advertised but never shot one.

SHHHH!!! I'm only on page 12 far LoL

Yes i meant to do a review but you know how it goes timewise.....

It is funny how at 59yrs old I've come full circle....in my younger days I had to be the biggest and baddest..if it didn't have a flattened primer, I could load it hotter....44 mag. .357. .454 Casull......300 WinMag, .338. .375H&H....you name it, I had it. I also have the bum shoulder and wrist issues as a reminder of how smart i was :)

Should have stuck to my .38's in competition Bullseye. Came in second once in a provincial match.

Anyway, this is a welcome thread for you, not memory lane for me.

Haha! It's all good- I suspect we have more in common than just airguns, judging by your sig line. 8)

Nice! I drive an '80 Malibu wagon that's been warmed over, had it since '82. It came w/a V6 but that was pulled and it's had 7 different engines n it over the years. Currently has a carbureted LS in it. Thought about a turbo(s) but decided it was okay as-is.

What do you think about the new Demon? Would love to have one myself including the box of extras and the ECM controller. Gotta like a street legal ride from the factory w/800-plus HP, line lock, etc!

3000 for the United States, 300 for Canada....we will never see one on the street I bet.

That being said, Dodge gave a giant "F-you" to the rest of the car industry :)..."this car doesn't go around corners...we dont give damn about Nuremberg lap times....THIS is a streetable sub 10 second drag car...here it is..wanna play? Bring it baby"!

I love it.

I was working late on the release evening...decided to sleep on my futon in office and watched the entire thing online. Very well done.


EDIT: I know..Plymouth is dead...but a little birdie told me to keep my eyes open for a 2019 model year CUDA :)
EDIT 2: Wagon huh? Ever thought of a Dodge Magnum? They made a SRT version that is pretty sweet. Buddy is doing a conversion with a doner car...will be using the 392 instead though..from a wrecked SCAT Shaker
