Yesterday I said that I would post some pics, I tried to post them today but couldn't because it keeps saying that the file is to big.
Once I figure out how to resize them I will try it again. Just didn't want anyone to think I lied.

Gimp software is free, and as far as I can tell, is every bit as good as Photoshop.  I understand that Gimp had the "heal" feature before Photoshop did.  The first time I saw it was probably ten years ago an it was very, very impressive.  I use it now for all my pictures, to sharpen, lighten or darken or improve the contrast if necessary, crop, and re-size.  The basics like that are very easy with it.  I don't get into the more in-depth stuff.

Crossliner, I hear ya! Years ago after going thru a divorce I went and saw a counselor for a while (because it helped ) she said, you know Jim you are a perfectionist and the problem with people like you is that you think every one else has to be the same way too. It hits home often. :o

I cannot leave mine alone either.

Today, I got my Baker Airguns aluminum breech and I don't like it.

First, I specified that I be sent one w/o scratches, scuffs, and dings.

This one has dings below the loading port.

It is rough to rack and the bolt does not even sit well on the cradle slot.

I would have ordered two more as spares and send them out to CCR Refinishing for plating.

I have read somewhere of a user's identical observations to mine.

Frankly, I have no idea why it gets glowing reviews, having read of other users' evaluation.

Probably I am just too picky.

Will be returning it, of course.

I once posted a topic on GTA, entitled, roughly "Why Buy A Marauder If You Want A Marauder".

And then a year or two later, I bought a Marauder (.25 caliber, wood).    :D

The impetus of the topic was, a stock Marauder is around $500 (street prices lower), and many seriously mod them - like up to 150 fpe and more at the upper end.   And the Marauder modding goods get expensive.

And then I provided a sample list of parts to create such a rifle, and thereby saving $500 - while spending $1000 and more.

With respect to the GTA topic title, at least my Marauder is stock and unmodified.    :)

As to the 22XX guns, many times the CCS gun is a better starting point.   But in reality the CCS guns are simply an assembly of factory parts, except a clean gas tube and for the ability to select wood grips and bling-enabled muzzle brakes.   BTW, Crosman should add the P-Rod trigger assembly and matching hammer to CCS 2300KT and 2400KT models.

There certain is more available from many vendors for the 22XX guns than any other platform - both performance items and dress up goods.

Just curious. ???
If you buy a 2240 and then replace all of the original parts, couldn't you just build one from scratch using all "custom/preferential" parts?  That would save you the cost of the original - unless you already had one of course.

Well, all is well, I fixed it! I have the1701p trigger frame in there and I just backed off on the two adjustment screws and that took care of it. I like the way the trigger feels now even better!
