Beautiful pistols you guys have!  Really like the shrouded barrel.

RetatCDude,

Where did you get the barrel band that fit the shroud or did you make it? Thanks!

I think the CF is just a wrap.

I dunno if the barrel band is wide enough though to accommodate the thin sheath though.

Probably sanded a bit to increase the ID.

Nah... his barrel is definitely larger OD than mine, like a shroud would be.
Look at the gap between the barrel and tube on mine compared to his.
 Maybe an M-rod band?

Well you did a great job on the wrap. I've used CF looking wrap to take some slop out of adjustable butt stocks.  It's just thick enough to take the slop out but still function properly.

Great group! You got a keeper for sure!  Wow, 70 shots with only 24 pumps, that's great!

It is a PSI "sipper" for sure.
 Nothing like watching the pellet travel to exactly where you aimed through the scope.

Thanks for sharing  :-*

Ticked the "Notify me of replies." box as this is interesting and allways have been keen on this pistol but to cough up that amount allways kept me from buying it. Who know what happens..... But for now... they are asking 1 euro shy of 500 Euro in the Netherlands, that's app 560 US $  :-X

Enjoy your new pistol (congrats) and have fun and please keep sharing.  :-*
€ 379,05 As listed today not counting shipping from France until tomorrow 22/03

Your grip are beautiful and It is very difficult for us to buy those since GMAC stopped selling Wood grips...

Thank you Nogolem, I an certainly falling in love with shooting this gun. I am still trapped indoors at 10M. I can not wait for the spring  weather to arrive.

Dang, that 399 Euros is of $450 USD!
 Wonder what shipping would be from here to there?

they write free shipping to France, and I simulated a shipping to belgium and it works....nothing listed for Nederland....
At armurerie auxerre It is always Free shipping if you buy at least €150....
do not call them on phone since It is an expensive call number, they answer Mail though....
"contactez nous par e-mail" link at the bottom of the page.... or "contact" link....

It is a "destockage" (those crosman do not sell very well in France) Maybe a negociation would work by e-mail...
On the french forum, nobody bought any 1701P for years....
