What to do with all these air rifle peices?

Unread postAuthor: dungdue0 » Mon Mar 12, 2012 6:24 pm

So from left to right. I have a daisy powerline 880, A crosman pump american classic (I think). And a crosman powermaster something (I think :)).

Anyways what you see is what I have available, all other peices have either been broke or lost (except for some frame peices and some barrels)

Each of these can be pumped maximum times and each valve can be actuated under certain circumstances. Actually the 880 and American classics still have trigger mechanisms.

For example, on the 880 I push the tab in the rear downwards to "cock" it. Then I can pump and actuate the valve as normal by pulling the trigger. The powerline however has no bolt locking mechanism so I have to pull it back manually and snap it forward creating my own "hammer."

So now my actual question is, what can I do with these pump and valve assemblies? Its too costly to try and purchase the missing parts to make them back their original selves. ANY Ideas are greatly appreciated. Thanks

You could send 1 to me haha. I have a couple of parts that may fit, but I don't really want to get rid of them just yet. I would save those for now, because if the valves are still in good condition you could make a new hammer mechanism and put it on there. Maybe make a "hybrid" (not a combustion + pneumatic hybrid, a mix of different items hybrid) and put the missing pieces together.

Would likely cost less than $20 for parts and shipping to put that 1377 "right". Can hotrod the heck out of them too. 8)

Buy a barrel and grip for the pistol.

You can probably pay for them by selling the rest.

You could edit your post for clarity. Sometimes you appear to say "Powerline" when you seem to mean "Powermaster".

The Crosman pistol looks readily restorable.

Order a barrel from the factory. It should be cheap enough. Find a nice piece of wood (or anything flat and thick enough, really), and make some custom grips. Or mold some from putty epoxy. Or, cut one of the barrels you have and make it fit. Factory grips should be really cheap, but that's boring.

The 880 looks like a fun project. Visit gunshops and pawnshops in your area, and see if you can find a takeoff or military surplus gun stock for cheap. Or, get some boards and make one yourself. Fit one of those barrels you have, and you've got a muzzleloader.

The Powermaster is tricky. So you pull the lever back against spring tension, and then when you let go, it snaps forwards and fires the air rifle. Is this correct?
