I enjoy taking inexpensive air rifles and pistols and making them better. Follow the links below to see how I work my magic with relatively common tools:
Squeezing more out of my Umarex Fuel – breakbarrels often need a new breech seal right out of the box.
Adventures in shimming – breakbarrels sometimes have their breech seal cut too deep. A shim or two will bring things to where they belong.
How to tune airgun triggers – most airguns are designed for lawyers, not shooters. Learn how to modify them at your own risk!
The B3-3 Project – a old, very common underlever design gets the treatment. It has turned into one of my favorite low powered shooters.
Daisy 880 Project – the 880 is often the first powerful air rifle a teen gets his hands on. I’m a little late to the game, but I’m having a blast with this one.
Improving the Daisy 880 Pump – the 880 really wakes up with just a bit of dental floss, epoxy putty, and teflon tape.
Daisy 880 Power Valve Mods – I’ve got the Daisy 880 making over 10 fpe with 10 pumps!
Stroking the B3-3 – squeezing more power out of the Chinese B3-3!
