Airgun Hunting / Re: Varmint hunting season

Yep, a can would be nice.  Still too many people around and the angles aren't good from my front door  ;).  About a year ago I saw the first one digging like crazy, now there's gotta be over 40 mounds.

Break Barrel, Pumper and Springer Airguns / Re: New to me Used 1377

I've done essentially that—twice! If I do it again, I'm going to do a 2240, and convert it to HPA (≈2,000 psi).

They effect the accuracy, but if all you're looking for is velocity, they work okay. You will need the V3 model which is rather expensive.

Has anyone tried a Magneto Speed V2 on a air gun?  Just wondering if there are any do's or don'ts to using one.  Thanks!

Picked up a used a 1377 the other day, now the fun begins.  Only mods done were a steel breech and the shoulder stock by previous owner.  This is a blast to shoot!  I'm a tinkerer at heart and have been looking at all the mods others have done, all I can say is Wow!  So many options.  I can already see that this won't be my only 13xx  :).  I ordered the FT Piston and Valve, solid roll pin replacement, breech riser and 14.5" 22 cal Crossman barrel.  I'm planning on carbon fiber shrouding the barrel, making a carbon fiber butt stock and custom grips / pump handle.  I'll post some pictures of the before and after once I get it done.  It may take a while, I'm self employed and have been really busy this past year.  Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Airgun Tanks, Compressors and Filling / Re: Yong Heng equals freedom

This brings up a related issue. If I have a light day at the ranch, I may only shoot 3 or 4 times. But even if I shoot 10 shots, it takes my Omega longer to fill its innards, than it does to fill the 4,500 PSI bottle! Read that as extra wear and tear! This is yet another reason I don't like post dryers.

I notice you use a post dryer. I tried one of those with my Shoebox, and it interfered with the automatic cutoff in the Shoebox. Most of the time, is shut off too soon, but all it took for me to abandon the post dryer, was an over pressure situation which blew the safety disc on my tank.

Now, I use a home-made predryer which uses silica gel, and works very well. I suspect the same scenario could be used with the Yong Heng.
