Heathways plainsman 175 barrel mod
« on: November 23, 2021, 12:32:10 PM »
This is a Heathways plainsman 175 that I have extended the barrel to 12 inches. The barrel was taken from a Heathways MX175 rifle that was a junker for parts. I wanted to keep it as original as possible using Parts from another Heathway gun. Although you could do the same using a barrel from a Crosman or Daisy. ,

You keep amazing me with all of the airguns you own. Not only that, if it doesn't suit you, you mod it. Amazing.

I have a Hill EC-3000 compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your tank as a courtesy (4,250 PSI limit).

I will be doing a barrel extendtion on a Crosman 338 as soon as I find one that isn't sold at highway robbery prices.

All you need now, is to devise a scope mount!

It's a hollow zinc alloy frame I could drill and tap it and add a scope rail.
