Airgun Optics and Accessories / Re: centerpoint poor replacement?
« on: December 11, 2017, 07:47:01 PM »
Yep!! It was so bad I cut it open to see. seems to be some sort of pvc tube and pcs/focus/turret caps even softer then tube, tube and obj bell were firm enough but plastic is plastic. I will bite it and buy a good/better one . It just erks me beyond belief. And the poor service ladies are told they don't make a plastic scope. I have Horton 11 dollar clearance scopes that are better, and are alloy. Not the first time crosman has made errors , live and learn. BUT a warning to look out to the members.

Airgun Optics and Accessories / centerpoint poor replacement?
« on: December 11, 2017, 03:11:58 PM »
I bought a centerpoint scope 3x9x32 or 40 can't recall it had a lit crosshair at wally world. I know expect what you pay for but this is insane. I sent it back in because it would not hold zero, I have others that do fine for my air rifles. PCPs mostly, anyway I sent it back, and got back as a replacement for  69 dollar scope a 10 dollar at most POS made out of plastic. Crosman customer service denies any of their scopes are plastic but this one is. They refuse to follow up on the phone and just told me that I was wrong and they don't have lit crosshairs anymore and this is a equal value scope. I have about 12 of crosman scopes and have had trouble with 2 , first replacement was fine and all other scopes work ok. but this burns my rear. Is this where I put this so all will be warned or ?? let me know or move. Thanks

General Airgun Forum Discussion / Re: Smooth Twist Barrels
« on: June 10, 2017, 06:54:58 PM »
After having a couple dozen of hammer forged barrels that are made over a mandrel for PB , I believe that they would be the cats bottom for air rifles. A friend who is a gun smith of a high order claims it is the hardest barrel to machine, and the rifling in, it is the best / smoothest he has seen. The first couple were Mannlicher Schoener those left the hammer marks on the barrel out side.  Also had a few chezk made barrels.  My son has a 223 from the chezk rep. that has over 10,000 round thru it and the shows very little throat wear/erosion . So I think a air gun barrel would be great. Only smooth bore I had that appeared to work was a polygonal type but to much friction, I think for a pellet??? what da ya think Bob.

Too bad some could not make them for us out of Alum, Ti, or something more durable.

That is a dang nice holster, Hate to see what it cost. I have made holsters for 50 years off and on and if you can get that one buy it. Perhaps the person who made it could leave off the end seam. Should be no problem for them. But the pouch for pellets and co2 cart would be a pain in the butt.

I can make one , but it would be a lot less expense to use a contender holster, LDC may be a issue though. I carry mine in an old map case over the shoulder and it has extra place for small tools that I use for 12 gram co2. Map case also does not disturb anyone stopping by.

Thanks guys, I just sent him one of my old ones, still a ok though.

Does anyone know who makes them now.?

OH YEA he is 29 and been shooting since about 7 but we don't know who makes what anymore and after a recent FUBAR with a supposed beeman , were both a bit leery of the springer line. He is at college so he is on a budget as I can't afford his tuition, so he has to pay. But he likes to shoot and wants to do it close to were he lives. PB make him travel away's. I have been using PCP and have a few new break barrels that I am not thrilled with. My old ones are a OK but the new batch out there, not so sure of.
thanks  for any help

Corbin , always nice stuff but always pricy. My thought was if you could make a consistent knurl you would be more accurate? the one I had was a lyman I THINK. Not sure, I will have to dig around. It holds the lube better but as I recall and could increase dia..

In the old days you could buy a roller knurler ,  but I have not seen one in ages perhaps some one at NOE would make one for all cal.. I used to have one for 38 slugs but I can't find it in all the stuff I have around. Can you say hoarder!!. You lay a bullet on 2 rollers and put pressure on a third and turn a crank. Not a big piece of tooling but it worked.

Thanks , so far it looks like he is sending it back, he is not a new shooter so he was concerned that the action was moving back and forth in stock about 3/16 inch each shot and the stock was cracking, screws were tight. Could not hit a 8x11 sheet of paper at 15 yards , Wondered if this is a new normal for beeman, they used to be good air guns. Only had it 4 days. Go figure. Thanks for reply
