    Crosman/Benjamin Fortitude comes to mind.

    You don't really need to buy a 5-20lb tank. You can buy an inexpensive 20oz paintball tank and have it re-filled at any paintball shop, and some sporting goods stores. The most expensive part would be the on/off/bleed valve for the tank the other items are relatively cheap 4" hp hose and the adapter to the 88g or the 2x 12g.

    For me, toting one or two 20oz tanks to the shooting sight was a lot less work and weight than a dive tank.

    That was one of the earliest mod's done to the 88g tanks. Later on B & A came out with a version that could be filled and stored off of the gun. If you have the 2x12g adapter for the 850 you can leave out the 12g's and just bulk fill it off of the gun, then install it.

    Now isn't that interesting. I wonder if they will do a re-release of the AS2250.

    The Diana version will pierce all three 12g's. the Mrodair Plinkster will only pierce one at a time if that makes any difference in your choice.

    As far as quiet, Mike @ TKO can probably supply you with something a lot better than the OEM/s

    Sorry for the delayed reply. Yes I bought the scope on sale ans sent it to Leupold. They charged me $25.00 for the re-calibration.

    I'd be taking a look at the "UniRamp" front sights from Marbles.

    Front Sights

    You might want to give Mike @ TKO a call there's a good chance that he might have something.

    Why not just add iron sights to a Fortitude? You would have no problem finding a Williams adjustable for the rear, and you could probably use a front sight for a 12ga. These guns are reasonably priced ($249.00) @ sportsmans Guide) and they are already reg'd & shrouded. And being from Crosman they have the best customer support, and parts availability in the industry.

    For backyard plinking, and spinners I'd think about a micro reflex sight with a 3min dot. That way it will work as a handgun, or a carbine.

    How about a Benjamin Fortitude? Sportsman's Guide has them for $249.00. If it doesn't shoot as well as you want Crosman will make it right.

    And unlike a lot of the other air gun companies their parts support is unequaled.

    I wanted a light weight fixed 4X scope for my AA 200s. I went with a Leupold .22 rimfire scope. It is light, has longer eye relief than most and I had Leupold reset the parallax for 30yds. Works Great.

    Easiest way to bulk fill the 850 is to use the OEM 2x12g adapter, bulk fill it, and screw it into the gun. When I did my bulk fill conversion I got tired of removing the 2x12g adapter so I made a new front tube end for it with a foster and check valve. The added + is the weight loss from the heavy 88's.

    If you want to have a reliable, experienced expert do it my first choice would to talk to Mike at TKO .

    Give Rick @ Precision Pellet a call. A while back I think he had some made from Delrin.

    I'm getting started with the same project. Don Cothran has the measurements for the P'rod tube and can make them up to your desired length.You might want to consider leaving out the hole for the gauge in order to gain a little more air volume.

    You mentioned "Light Weight" if this is important  the Max is what you want. I bought an Urban from Amazon last yr for $199.00 I opened the box picked it up and returned it, no other reason than it's weight, I also wanted light.

    Another thought to consider is parts availability and in this area Crosman can't be beat

    I think the best bang for the buck in a premium holo sight is the Vortex Venom. It can be had in both 3min or 6min dot size and has a lifetime factory warranty.

    In addition it's one of the smallest around. No magnification so no parallax issues.

    All three the 1701,1720 and the P'rod use the same valve. That said, you could either just buy a P'rod and swap the OEM tube for a 1701 and shorten the barrel, or buy a P'rod top end for what you have and shorten the barrel to your likes. The Big But here is that with either of these solutions you will end up with a .22 as I don't believe the P'rod is available in .177.
