    My 75+ yr old eyeballs really like the small holo dot sights. I have had no luck with the cheaper ones but the Vortex Venom with a 3min dot works great for me you can use them with both eyes open. With the dot turned down I can get really good results out to 35 yd's..which is as far as I've tried it so far. And they are guaranteed for life.  The down side is the cost $249.00 per copy.

    Both the Artemis 600, and the Umarex 850 are bolt actions. Aren't you trying to get away from bolt action?

    If it was my gun I'd give Mike T a call @ TKO. There is very few airguns he has not work on, fixed, and usually made better than OEM.

    Get some air in it and fire it without any pellets (dry fire) as quickly as possible several times. If there is just a speck of debris

    between the poppet and the seat it will leak, dry fire will very often clear that spec. If no results after that the next thing as noted above is a tear down and replace the poppet and o rings.

    In my experience any of the Crosman's mentioned will work for you. The one big reason I tilt toward the Crosmans is that their Customer service, and parts availability is second to none in the airgun market.  Getting parts you may need for any of the SPA's (Artimis, Diana, etc) is for sure a crap shoot.

    No neg's to the 2300s aside from their cost above the 2240. I can't say I have heard of any loading issues, unless some folks are referring to the front location breech screw recess causing the pellet to tip on the way in. All of my 22xx's are .22's and no problem at all.

    If you build a 2300 in the online Crosman shop on a Friday I think you get free shipping, also might be able to take advantage to the AGNATION discount.

    Beautiful Streak F. I had two S/S F's that I sold, one satin one polished nickle. I kept a Blue Streak F that I converted to bulk fill. With bulk fill it's another gun entirely.

    Enjoy

    For the most part they use 8g bulbs. You can get them in kitchen supply stores.

    I had a friend that was an IBM tech and in his company provided tool kit was a small tube of Loctite 222. He gave me some and ever since (25yrs) i have had some in my shop. It is designed for fasteners up to 1/4" and separates without using killer force, yet I have never had it fail.

    On any smaller fasteners Red Loctite needs plenty of heat to yield.

    +2 for the Fortitude…add quiet to what was already mentioned, and the best customer support.

    The Crosman discount code, and their free shipping Fridays will drop the $$

    I would check in the direction of a loose pellet somewhere in the action. This has been noted on the old 850 forum. That will slow down the striker hit. Turn the rifle upside down and shake it. If you hear something rattling around, you might have to take the side cover off to clear them.

    For me, until Evanix has full parts availability in the U.S.A.  I wouldn't buy ANYTHING Evanix .

    If you need a semi auto wait a few weeks for the Semi Marauder. At least Crosman will stand behind it.

    Call Don Cothran I'm sure he will have something that will do the trick.

    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.
