ED, let me know if you need me to send the 1389 tube you did for me.

You would, definitely  have a market for these SS pump tubes.  Maybe for somebody doing a PCP conversion or something they'd be very desirable.  And you always have people that just want the very best on their 13xx so they might go for it too.

A replacement pump tube from Crosman in steel, is $11. Before manufacturing a whole bunch with intent to sell them, at what price point can you keep such a product where a lot of people would want to buy it, would be my question if i were doing it.  I'm not saying a lot of people wouldn't want it - because they would.  But we are talking about a $60 gun and your tube maybe couldn't really cost a lot more then that for the whole venture to be viable.

You bring up a valid point, how much will it cost to make the tube and what are people willing to pay for it. To compare the cost of the tube to the cost of the gun is really not a factor when you consider other modifications that get applied, steel breech, optics, wood furniture, etc.

The current price of a Don Cothran stainless steel 2240 tube is $41.80. A 13xx tube should cost more than that due to length and the machining required.
Long days and pleasant nights to you...

talked to don cothran today
1377 tubes are going to be made
he needs to make some jigs for milling the slots and some others needed to complete the tubes
he also said he sets a couple days a week aside for airgun stuff but it doesnt put food on the table so his other accounts take priority
but just so you know it is going to happen probably by the first of the new year or sometime early in the new year
he has the material on hand for the tubes they just need to be honed and milled

Well all we need now is a stainless trigger frame.  Might as well do the pump arm linkage too!

I too have talked with Don many times, but always about PCP & Big Bore.

How can we accurately assemble a list of people (Or Pre-Paid People) to insure he will have the interest to manufacture.
And, those interested will have them available to them on a first on list basis?

I know I would be interested in 4 myself. Walt

Is something like a list available to be assembled?
