It gets even better for me, I got a John Bowkett BluePrinted BSA Super 10 Bull Barrel on the way too, should get it Mon/Tues next week.
I fell in love with this as soon as I saw it.

You do not get any better than that. Bowkett's blueprinted Super 10's and Hornets are considered, well, awesome in every way. How are you going to fill it?

I have had a big divers bottle in my workshop for a while now, just never got around to using it. I am waiting an adapter for my Stealth before I can fill that, but it is full anyway so will be ok for a while.

Mine's more of a what wasn't on the truck. Last month I got a dash-cam that has a night vision mode for when I go hunting vermin, the reason I got the 2400 KT in the first place. For as cheap as it was for a night vision mode it has a real good picture. Dang thing was it came without memory. SO, first of the month I go to eBay and look for a US dealer of memory. Won and ordered the chip on the 31st...I'm still waiting. I accused them of not having the items in the US. They have hemmed and hawed around, claming it's lost in the post. Bull. I suspect that they have their warehouse in China, probably in Hong Kong, and the shipping delay is due to the fact that they wait for what you want to be shipped(and I mean container shipped)to the US and repackaged here to show a US postmark. Every thing I have ordered from a US dealer has taken a week or less. It's past 2 weeks with these Chinee liars. I'll be going to anyone I want to buy from and double check them by looking at their negative feedback. You can find out a lot about a seller looking at it, if I had I would have discovered that most of the bad feedback was due to the time it took people to get their stuff.

It's only held up a few projects I have planned, some to do with air guns but mostly building a motorized bike. I'm putting a Morini pitbike motor on a bicycle  :)

How did Ron do on the crown and leade in? Does the rifling look good? The last Crosman 1377 I got had very shallow rifling. I have B&A on my short list for a replacement barrel.

I thought it was maybe my eyes, or the differences in barrel diameter, but the .177 barrel "seems" to have shallower rifling than the .22.  The leadin of the .177 is very pronounced and the crown seems smooth and done ok. The leadin on the .22 isnt tappered as much as the .177 but the crown is very well done -->  I can clearly see the rifling marks at the end.  Both crowns passed a q-tip test .... no fibers getting caught on tiny burrs that my eye cant see. Both barrels seem good on the port and come with set screw dimple.  The .22 has the flat for the sight.  Fit and finish is good too.

I'm anxious to get the 1377 10.1" barrel out of the gun to compare rifling with the new one.  Probably not fair comparing the .22 vs. the .177

Your going to use a drill press as a milling machine? Be very careful and take light cuts.Get ready for the chuck to come flying at you unless you locktite it on.It WILL happen sooner or later.
I got a new Mark II for my wife and kids... I think it was a pretty good trade.

Well my BSA S10 should be on the truck today and a carbon 7L fill bottle.

As UK Customs took away my DAQ 2250 I have decided to make my own, so my DAQ Breech and .25 barrel are on the truck back from GMAC, the barrel was shortened and both re blued. Also got some bits for my secret project  ;)

Gotta stay in so the wife doesn't answer the door to the drivers and grill me on how much all all the parcels cost that are due in today   ;D

Well, I ordered barrel bands for my 2540 and 1325 a few weeks ago from GMAC. 'Will keep you posted.

Now that I have the stock 10.1 barrel out of the 1377 and can compare it, I have to say that the NEW AirGunBnA 18" .177 barrel has deeper rifling and is noticeable.

Cant wait to try the 2 2240 .22 barrels side by side .... because the BnA .22 looks even deeper than BnA .177

That's the thing about being a Crosman addict, it's a slow and slippery slope and before you know it, you're hooked.  The only true indicator is a noticeable decrease in your slush funds / disposable income.
