    Can someone with experience in these “American Classics” tell me if they hold pressure ok, for at least a couple hours, or do you have to pump them up immediately before the shot to to maintain power ?

    Thx

    If it’ll hold it’ll hold for a long time but as the heat from pumping the holding vessel/tank drops the pressure will drop some. nothing that a pump or two won’t bring back. Thats what I would do in the 60’s with my old crosman 760. ahhh the memories  :  )

    Well if well maintained they should, I think mine does although I have never really tried to time it.
    ​Outside of the occasional anomaly like getting a gun with a valve that’s not as it could be or something along those lines I believe it should be doable.  Are you having issues with one?

    ​I’ll pump mine up and take a chrony test then pump it up again to eight pumps then leave over night and check with a chrony again in the morning and report back.

    Awesome thanks!!!  That’ll be interesting to see the results. 

    No problems, I am disgusted with the power of my newly aquired 2240/2300kt and wanna get a 1322 if it will hold pressure pretty good.

    Basically I want a pistol in .22 that will deliver at least 6 ft/lb at 15-20 yards for snake killing and bullfroggin’.    Them bullfrogs have hard ass heads!

    Well here are my results, I chrony’d two shots last night at 477 & 488,  this morning the first came in at 459 and I re-pressurized and took a second at 470 using H&N Sniper Lites, a pellet I’ve never tried in the 1322 before but it was what I had close at hand.

    Keep in mind I haven’t shot the 1322 since spring of 2017 so it may have been a little dry and I added a drop or two of pellgun oil when I finished testing.

    Awesome news!   Thanks man, I really appreciate it.   
    I have one on the way now, along with the goodies to upgrade it a bit.     Tried to go through the custom shop but when I went to pay their site said my address couldn’t be verified (whatever the hell that means) so I got frustrated and just ordered all of it from PA and I’ll do it myself.    
    I didn’t really wanna wait a month or more to get it anyway.

    Supposed to be here tomorrow.  I got a steel reciever, scope, and a trigger shoe to go on it.
    I wanted to get the upgraded pivot pin but I couldn’t figure out which one it was or where to get it.   Figure I can always make one from a drill bit or a stainless bolt if it really needs it.

    Well I got her all set up, it’s amazingly accurate but very weak (wouldn’t penetrate a soup can even at 10 yards) so I tore it back down to see if maybe I didn’t get the transfer port lined up right.  Seemed like I did, but I took extra time lining everything up when I put it back together the second time to be sure.   Haven’t retested it yet but will this evening.  

    It should be able to blow through a soup can at 20 yards…..Shouldn’t it ???

    Happy news!   All kinds of can busting power now.   I must have had the transfer port misaligned…..or something.  Lots better now.
    This thing puts that worthless 2240 CO2 POS to shame!
