Healthways Plainsmaster 9405
« on: January 08, 2022, 02:16:29 PM »
"The Plainsmaster 9405 is a Plainsman with an extended 9.4” barrel, a plastic grip and fore-end in imitation walnut grain and a removable metal foregrip. Other than these changes the 9405 is mechanically identical to the Model 9400 and was designed to shoot proprietary Healthways .177” nickel coated steel BBs , however it will also shoot modern zinc or copper coated steel BBs. The BB reservoir holds up to 100 BBs it takes a standard 12 gram co2 cartridge. And has a spacer to accept a 8 gram cartridge that the early two variants of the Plainsman 175 used.

One of the more interesting aspects of your series on older model airguns, is the vast number! I suspect nowadays, with all of the replicas coming from the likes go UMAREX, has extended the number into the hundreds.

As a side light... I've noticed you typically don't shoot the newer BBs which disintegrate on impact. I wander if you've noticed a change in accuracy between the solids and the frangible ones?

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 wish there was a database of every airgun ever made that was updated regularly.

Well, there is the Airgun Blue Book. The 13th edition is out, but even it is about one year old. As you alluded to, an on-line one would be nice. Assuming I had the inclination, it would still be an expensive undertaking, so some sort of fee would have to be collected.

A web edition would be wonderful. It would be much easier to update, make additional content. Etc.... Something like Wikipedia. The people that publish the blue book could also publish a online version with a yearly fee.

Agreed. But I don't know any of them. I wonder if others here do?
