Crosman air pistol - General discussion / Re: Five Easy Probes
« Last post by BillK on May 23, 2020, 10:31:44 PM »
This was a great test, I'll be shopping for an extended probe!

I really like the Cothran bolts  https://cothranmachine.com/category/crosman/crosman-bolt-handles/
 as they have a magnet that holds the bolt open when tipping the gun down to load a pellet. 
It is a extra option only once.  Then it becomes a necessity. ;) (sorta like an ice maker in your fridg)
BTW Crosman sells the magnet separately as it is a part used in the 2300S bolt.  Just drill your bolt and super glue the magnet in place.

This discussion is helpful.

When properly installed, holding the 1377 so that one is looking at the sight from the side, should it be possible to see a slight gap between base of the LPA sight and the slot it sits in?

When installing, I turned the elevation screw counter clockwise a couple of clicks — it seemed to click? — in order to have elevation set at lowest setting.  I was surprised at how hard it was to turn, and did not turn it further for fear of breaking it. Is this concern unfounded?

I also pushed down on the sight when tightening the set screws.

One of the two set screws is harder to get the allen wrench inserted into properly.  I try to be gentle and careful with it so as not to strip it, but it takes a while.  Can these screws be replaced?  Does anyone know what they are called, how to specify them, and where to find them?

Good work going on there, enjoy your pistol  :)

I have quite a few long range rifle scopes, but since I'm only shooting  10 meters, something lower power, or fixed seems to make the most sense. Less than $100. I think.

I’ve had good results with a basic 30mm red dot. No magnification, but that’s what makes it challenging.

Crosman air pistol - General discussion / Re: 1377c Accuracy

My 2 target rifles (MSP & SSP) shoot around 500 fps, and my 2 pistols are about 450-480 fps (SSP & CO2).

For target shooting, you’ll want to shoot wadcutters for clean holes, and they are more accurate at slower speeds.

If you’ve got a chronograph, I’d start in the 450-500 fps speed range. For a stock 1377, I’d guess this would be 6 pumps for a 7 grain wadcutter pellet.

Sorry: SSP = single-stroke pneumatic, MSP = multi-stroke pneumatic

Yeah, the Cyclops has absolutely nothing good to say about Crosman's scopes.  How much are you looking to spend?  In the $100 price range (like arkmaker's reference), the Cyclops highly recommended the Hawke Vantage 4x32 AO scope, although I think the focus only goes down to the 10 yards you're talking about.  (Very few go any less anyway.)  I got one and am very happy with it!
