    Last time is was a Chinese Co2 Rifle. Bitten by the co2 bug, this time I have  acquired a Crosman 2260. It is in good condition with a steel breech, and by all accounts shoots well.

    I don’t  know much about the 2260 so I have my fingers crossed that it works out well for me.

    I like the  2260.  I used mine to cull a bunch of pigeons from a very expensive barn.  It worked perfect with wad cutter pellets.  No penetration of the metal roof or walls but hammered the pigeons and is very accurate.  Nice little guns.

    I'm glad someone else is interested in co2. I have a Hammerli 850 in .177 coming from SPAW after the holidays.

    I talked to Roald from The 850 Store about co2 regulators since I am in Texas and it gets pretty hot in the summer. He said he hadn't had much luck finding a good regulator back in the day, but if I could find one it would be a good solution. Since I am planning on tethering to an external co2 bottle I started doing some heavy research. Seems the paintball co2 guys are really just using nitrous oxide regulators that are used in race cars. Fortunately I have one of the premier nitrous shops 5 miles from my house.

    I also swapped a few things for a Hammerli 850 in .177 that has been converted to HPA and is shooting JSB 10.34's ate 910 fps at 1100 psi. I am going to convert this one back to co2 as well and run it at 1100 psi on a co2 regulator. I assume I will get less fps because the co2 molecule is larger.

    Anyway, those are my two co2 projects for early next year.

    2260 is a fun rig, naturally pretty much all 22xx parts & mods work well, a marauder trigger can be fitted. I've used them with pinned valves and everything TKO can do, outstanding.

     

    d3vnull,  youe temp will always need to be above 90 degrees ( might not be hard in TX ) to use your reg.

    Yeah, on the one I will have to heat the bottle on cold days to get it to 1100 psi. On the other I will regulate it at 850 psi. Since I hate cold weather I won't be shooting below 75 degree days anyway or will just use the HW30 where I can get in from the cold quickly.
