“Smaug”

“Wadcutter”Nice find.
I used the rebuild kit from Mac1
http://www.mac1airgunshop.com/product-p/cr1400rk.htm

Results were
10 pumps with 11.9gr RWS Hobby———————————710fps  13.3fpe
10 pumps with 12.50gr Beeman Silver Bear———————700 fps 13.6fpe
10 pumps with 13.43gr JSB Exact Jumbo RS——————–690 fps 14.2fpe

 

 


That’s pretty hard-shooting for a pumper! 


I have an old .pdf manual of the 1400 and its rated at 610fps with 10 pumps. The manual does not mention what pellet was used. I was pleasantly surprised to see the results. The rifles manufacture date was 1972.
I rebuilt a similar Crosman model 140 (1965) and the velocity at 10 pumps using 11.9gr RWS Hobby averaged 650fps 11.2fpe
