The PRod Came (Used but new to me)
« on: September 23, 2021, 10:53:30 PM »
I had one before and regretted selling it.
The 1720T is good for targets and Pistol FT but…
IMHO the PRod carbine is the perfect PCP choice for walking in the woods, camouflaged, or not.
I put the 4-14X BSA FFP Tactical scope on it and it is one compact package.
Just in time for nutters and bunnies..
I don’t know what speed it is shooting (I will check it tomorrow when it is cooler) but it shoots great and feels strong.
I had to touch up the paint a bit…
I also added some goodies..
With the aluminum billet cheek riser the weight is kinda toward the back but with the bi-pod (and some lead I melted into the forearm), it balances very nice for off-hand shooting.
I have a trigger shoe coming from Dave (Alchemy airwerks) next week..

I have always liked that carbon fiber look! Nice catch.

Ran some pellets across the chronograph today.
Haven’t touched the TP or added a bStaley yet.
So 24 shots from 2800-1500 is the norm with HS 6CW and HT 0CW..
15fpe for all pellets except for the RWS 14.0 WC: 14.6fpe.
Crosman advertises 700fps for the PRod and this one shoots 685fps with Discovery 14.3
The PRod I had before I bumped up the spring, enlarged the TP and ran a four o-ring BHB (bStaley).
This one feels pretty nice the way it is.
Placed a sliver of rubber between the back on the receiver and the top of the handgrip part of the stock.
That stops the wobble very well.
I think I got a good deal from the AA Classifieds…$200.00 delivered..
I took the shroud (and TKO) from the 1720T as well as the forearm and stock that I was using there and put on the PRod.
