    Yup. You read it right, y’all. Friend of a friend was out junkin’, and found this one barrel down in a trash can. Heck of a way to go for a rifle from one of the longest-running series ever?! It’s a 760-D Pumpmaster, variant 8, built April 1998. Plastic receiver, styrene stocks, sights pressed onto the shortened, but rifled, barrel. Barrel and pump tube badly rusted, but dang if it didn’t shoot great!? I also noticed the rear sight elevation adjuster was missing. And the plastic mount pressed onto the breach end of the barrel has the sight flats on the barrel out-of-line. Anyway, here’s  video parts 1 & 4.


    ​And what it looked like when I first unboxed it;

      And the pump tube curing nicely this morning with a light buffing;

    They are surprisingly accurate! I did this target @ 10yds with H&N sniper light .177cal, 7.5gr before​ I tore it down for restoration;

    ​  And JSB Exact Express, 7.87gr;

      And Beeman silver bear, 7.1gr;

    Well, mac1 had to refund pre-payments folks made for his manual-cocking 760 seal/rebuild kits. He’s having problems with the 90 durometer seal supplier. So I searched Amazon and found this rebuild kit for $13.99. Comes with .PDF exploded diagram for the 760-B, etc. After finishing the 760v1 resto I’m currently working on, I’ll be finishing this 760-D v8. Video will be coming in another week or so.

    I’m finishing cleaning, polishing, bluing, reassembling small parts and all now. Once I find an ounce or two of black tempera paint for the gran/checkering fill, I can put it together. Got a Simmons 4×32 scope for it, since I’m using the one that was on it on my 760v1. So maybe next week it’ll be done?

    Oh hey, Hynzie,…Search Crosman air rifles on EBay. They have some receivers with parts, and some other parts for bid/sale now. Best do it today or tomorrow.

    As soon as the Caldwell upgrade/repair parts get here any time now, I’ll continue on with the final part of this video series. I’ll be testing the same 3 pellets through this restomodded 760-D Pumpmaster. Then revisit the Striker 1000x to 95 stock conversion.
