    Prices? Specs? Calibers? Website? Email address? The poor guy probably doesn't want/doesn't have time to field an identical series of "whose on first" questions from everyone on this forum who might be interested in a big bore. 

    Just a thought. :)

    STO-email is [email protected]– working on specs & calibers- know he has worked/built guns for.257/.308/9mm./.45/ & .58- his website was citrusairguns.com.Prices vary based on what you want to achieve-He has done things with valve work that people say can't be done LOL-check for utube videos; theres a few(one of which was my Marauder). Ask him about Crosman Bulldog he did up-

    Oh, he used to super tune the P-rod and M-rods right?  I only know because when I sold a p-rod quite some time ago the buyer said they were sending it straight to citrus airguns to make some sort of mini marauder carbine with it.

     

    Those big bores are beautiful, I wish I needed one lol.

    Some rough cuts of the .308 ( so markings etc)- Just put the gun together to check internals( o-rings holding pressure, etc.) Using marauder trigger block( that's awesome) Can't wait to see velocity & groups.

    In talking to mike, he has figured out proper hammer spring & adjuster- currently shooting @ 850 Fps. on 3000 psi fill with 132 gr. for 213 ft.lbs- Going for [email protected]~ 260 ft.lbs., then dial  back for shot count- shooting for 10 shots on 3000 fill. Next will be groups. Getting exciting.

    I used to live just a couple miles from Mike and have been to his shop a few times.

    The man definitely knows his stuff and builds some awesome power house valves most of his own design! No special models just builds exactly what your needs are for what ever your hunting….he's not cheap but custom never is!

    Chuck-He's a great friend of mine & has been VERY patient with my learning curve- Very keen mind & gets frustrated with certain types(build perfect gun to specs/ requirements only to have customer F**K things up with no knowledge tinkering LOL) – trying to get him acknowleged in this sport. What did he build for you? He started with the Marauder platform(one of his few u-tube videos had mine featured) but has since gone to custom big bore- and is doing well between surgeries(car wreck) but we talk weekly.Always delivers & usually better than whats expected- his valve work with big-bore takes it to next level
