I got hooked on airguns and firearms when I received my Crossman 760 back in 76. Shot the dog snot out of that rifle for years smooth wore out. Not knowing much when I was a kid I lost track of that rifle over the years still wish I had it back.
     Having collected numerous firearms over the years I started thinking about finding a vintage 760. Searching eBay for a couple of weeks I found a Vintage 760 made in 1976, so I bought it. Started going through it and found the barrel sorely wore out. It has been relegated overhaul/project list.
      Bought a Crossman Venom Nitro piston and promptly voided the warranty installing a GRTIII trigger. Vortex piston seal, honing the the cylinder, and buttoned piston. Made bronze barrel pivot bushings for it. Sporting a Leuplod VX Freedom 3x9x40 with the parallax fixed at 50 yards. Seems I can't leave stuff alone. Maybe it is in my nature been fixing jets for 35 years.
      Back to the 760 I have sourced a 1317 24" rifled barrel and made my tool list for modifying the barrel to fit into the 760. I need to get that project off the ground soon, but wait there is more!
     Went and spent the most expensive 50 buck ever. You guessed it 1322. Down the wormhole I have gone collecting an extensive list of performance parts. Waiting on them to show up is killing me :o
It is a wonder that my wife of 29 years puts up with me since the girls are grown. Might be the insurance money :-\

You can bet it is!

Just wait. Some day soon, you'll get bit by the PCP bug, and the disease that follows is incurable! If you don't believe me, just ask Steveoh, or CanIBorrowSomeAmmo?

I'm using the 12 step, er 12 gun plan to break my addiction. This week I'm shooting the p17 and the 397. Tiny bores. ;D
Buncha BB guns that I don't get to shoot as much as I like. Building duck boats now that I'm "retired".
