Any suggestions for a rear sight for a Crosman Silhouette 1701P, preferably changing front/rear to peep sights or fiber optic? Or the best iron sight option like the Crosman Williams. TIA!

Took me about 15 seconds to create a picture and post it.  :)

Crosman air pistol - General discussion / Update on my 2300S build
Last post by Drdan - May 09, 2024, 08:04:47 AM
Hi everyone,

My 2300S project is taking a bit more time than anticipated.  I sent a lot of upgraded parts from Alchemy, Don Cothran's shop, and others to Holland for the build. 

A billet aluminum trigger guard ordered from e-bay had lots of unsightly machining marks, so Teun Meen of Metura Sports sent it out for sand blasting, and the result was really nice, so much so that I won't be having it black anodized.  It will look nice with all of the stainless accessories... The pistol will hopefully be delvered sometime in May.

I am planning to give all of the spare parts away, and I will post something in the "For Sale" section of this forum once everything arrives in Germany.  The pistol itself will NOT be for sale.  :)

This is a list of the items that will be given away:

Williams FP notch rear sight
OEM aluminum muzzle brake with sight post
OEM plastic grips
Buck Rail solid plastic grips
OEM sear
OEM plastic trigger guard
OEM extended probe
OEM trigger
Don Cothran stainless steel bolt handle
OEM safety
OEM long steel breech
OEM screws
OEM  CO2 tube power adjuster
OEM CO2 piercing end cap
OEM breech end cap
OEM barrel band
OEM hammer
Blued steel 1/2" UNF muzzle brake adapter for threaded 7/16" (11mm) barrel

If anyone has an idea as to how to find a worthy recpient of these spares please chime in.  Perhaps it would be someone currently planning or working on a 2300T or 2300S build, or someone owning one of these guns and needing some spares...

As soon as the pistol is delivered, I will post photos and a list of all the mods.

Buck Rail makes some nice products. I recently received his 1/2-20 moderator like yours which mates up nicely with a threaded  aluminum barrel band which I purchased on ebay from Han Chen in Germany.
they're not hardened and not great quality steel tbh but what is these days

Geeze, I did a light review of the manual when I took the air gun out of the box and just kept plinking. I'll give it a drop of oil.

Wish I was at the coast. I made a Southern California turn around to pick up a few items my brother's widow wanted out of the garage. One item is a Sheridan "Blue Streak" 5 m/m air rifle. Haven't looked up what it is yet or if parts are available. The rifle looks like it was in deferred maintenance.
