    I have doomsday backpacker. It is "Ok" in stock form, but needs help to make it great.

    I did just order a new breech kit to replace the cheap plastic one.  It is Loud. What suppressor do folks recommend? 

    Anything else I should look at doing?

     

    Thanks!

    so what kind of sights are you going to use because once you put on that barrel adapter in 1/2-20 unf, if you use a screw on LDC,  the front sight is gone

    you could buy a 1720 grip frame and trigger assembly for a far better trigger

    it is a start

    look at tko22.com if you want a slip on ldc (held on by grub screws).  Adapters (from crosman 11mm? barrels to 1/2 unf) WERE hard to find but I haven't looked in several years. The TKO's were the go to ldc for the crosman pumper and co2 (same) barrels for many years. But I gotta say the pumpers really are not loud compared to anything else.

    the adapters are on Ebay for 25.00 and the key to an adapter is you can move your LDC from gun to gun, many adapters and one good LDC

    and if removable the gun is shorter

    just a note I like to put a o-ring on the adapters, so the LDC snugs up to the o-ring, it will come of when needed easier

    so it is in Poland but there service is great

    and on a screw on LDC for the money, a Weihrauch LDC is very good  shop around for price, I do have a Paris D and the HW is about the same in dp

    GMAC in the UK makes some really nice 1/2×20 unf barrel adapters. Then you can use a DonnyFL Tanto for a suppressor. They aren't available in .177 but .22 will still take the bark out of your gun- even a .25 cal one will work. It did on mine. DonnyFl product are that good. I can't remember if the open sights are still usable with the tanto but I use a scope on mine anyway.

    The GMAC barrel adapter is a tight fit on the pump tube and pump lever but is a loose fit on the barrel. A bit of rubber glue in the barrel socket fixes the loose fit. The tight fit for the pump and lever are improvements but makes assembly a bit difficult. I also had to shave a bit of material off the front end of the pump handle so that the pump could be opened enough. The adapter is a bit chunky and doesn't allow for enough clearance for the pump arm to open fully. No big deal though. A few minutes with the Dremel and you're done.

    However, after you've spent all that money on upgrading your Crosman, you may wonder why you didn't just buy a higher priced airgun to begin with. Well, because its fun to upgrade these classic Crosmans! There's whole forums on the subject.

    I too have bought a couple of the "LDC's" from Poland. They are machined very well. Shipping takes about 3 weeks but it's worth it.
