Crosman air pistol - General discussion / Re: Boards quiet or just me?

These phpBB forums sure work better than something like facebook though, as the phpBB forum allows more formatting, inlining pictures, searching, categorizing, etc..  Facebook seems to think nothing more than a couple of weeks old matters anymore.  I'm on a couple of very active phpBB computer-related forums.  I have not checked out GTA recently, because it was so active that using it was like trying to drink from a fire hose, which is why I like this forum for more focus, so I don't have to wade through material about all kinds of AGs I'm not interested in.  I wouldn't doubt if GTA has diminished slightly too.  I suppose Christmas and the winter weather has probably made a temporary reduction in AG forum activity too.

And the social media is easier for a lot of people.
You'd be surprised to learn that a lot of people do not have a computer anymore, only a phone.
A lot of forums slowed down.
Another forum I co-admin is slower too.
Another forum I admin is as dead as a door-nail.
This forum will stay for as long as I can admin it, it is a great resource that should not be lost.

We are getting tired of answering the same old questions for people who don’t know how (or don’t want to) to their own research.

      Just a random question, as I have been out of the game so to speak for a bit since I was moved to Colorado, but it appears that in the past couple of years the boards have gone a lot quieter, and many have disappeared. It even seems here has gotten a little quieter, I have missed out on a lot it seems, as there are now many more big bores, and even full-blown repeaters. I just got tied up in finding a reasonable place to shoot regularly other than local ranges, so I may have slipped into PRS a bit.
Well, I'm back after my favorite hobby again not that I'm dropping the RPS playtime, but this costs a lot less, and I can replicate the same difficulty at shorter ranges especially in the CO wind.

     After measuring my Silhouette PCP I also got the same dimensions as Rezarf, however, the bolt holes for mounting the breech, and the length of the beach are exactly the same. So rather than buying an entire PRod, you could purchase just the breech and swap it out to have the ability to use both your single shot tray and magazines.


P.S. There's a reason we refer to most of the Crosman pistols especially as the Lego's of airguns because you can build anything you want from them. In this case, Crosman chose wisely to use the same dimensions for both their single-shot breech, as well as the PRod breech. Thus saving cost on their end and giving us the options when we look a bit closer to once again take a part from one and simply use it elsewhere.
The 1720T if also a single shot.
Could change the receiver.
Just sell the 1701 and get a PRod..
     Since Crosman does make a PRod in 177 named the FT model, I would guess with a little work, or maybe a breech swap that it can either be converted or maybe as noted above shimmed so the mag will fit. The barrel would need to stick out enough to catch and hold the mag also.


P.S. I'll measure both of mine (1701 and new PRod) to see what I have as a difference too.
I miss described the title saying Ted Williams in the title so what the heck I did a target that same day with my Ted Williams on video and here Ted Williams shooting a bad guy target.

Thanks Kevin !!! I was shooting off hand sitting in a chair, I still need to print some of the December contest targets, is that still good if I send my entry in by December 31st?  Of course I figure for the contest I'll need to be standing so I still might end up using my Crosman 130 in the attic because co2 ain't so good in that cold air 8)
