What's this? Are you saying that we don't need to completely rebuild one before we can have fun with it? 😁Also, how would you compare the trigger to a Hatsan Edge? The Edge is the cheap springer that I compare all others to. Boy I wish they'd use a better trigger blade though!

Thanks!

Well, mine arrived this afternoon and it's better than expected.The good: - General machining is fine. Much better than I expected actually The fork joint seems machined true, and with minimal clearance. Breech chamfer & muzzle crown appear to be aligned with the bore. Chisel rides evenly against its mating boss. Lockup is quite solid. The dovetail groove appears to have been machined in alignment with the compression tube. The gun is accurate. - Sights are fine. Plastic, but they don't have any play in them and respond to adjustment in a reliable fashion. - Safety is resettable. - I find it easy to cock. - it appears to make good power. It will be interesting to chrony. - much lighter than I expected. Don't have a kitchen scale, but the box says 6.6lbs and I dont think its too far off.The bad: - the trigger is long and rough. Basiacally a yank-fest. - breech seal is flush with the pivot block. - the crown may be on point, but the bore seems to have drifted a bit in relation to the center axis of the barrel. - there is some soft crunching going on with the cocking stroke. Not much really, but its there.That said, after goofing around a little I did drop a crappy old Center Point 4x "package" scope onto it and gave it an honest try (9 yds) with some Hobby's which fit the bore pretty well. I pulled the second shot low while trying to stage the trigger, but 1, 3, 4 & 5 had no human error to speak of.So I'm surprisingly happy with it. It would definitely be a good gun to tinker with.
I've never opened up a springer, so I can't speak to that.I do have a few Edge's though, and the triggers are better although I hate the hook shape of the Edge blade.I'm hoping that the 1100 trigger can be helped a little. It isn't terribly heavy but it's very long and couldn't be called crisp at all. I hardly expexted a Rekord, but it's the only real issue the rifle has.
I think if you look close you'll see the triggers are different and the stocks are not interchangeable. The 1100 front stock screw go in at an angle. The 1000 stock screws go in 90 degrees or straight in. The cocking linkage look similar but the way the attach to the barrel block is different. The safety lever and end cap look similar but are different. Trigger guard is different.They made the 1000 in Brazil for a while between Turkey and China. I've never seen one up close. I'd like to have one since I have the Hatsan made 1000 and the 1100.
This is my Winchester 1100s. There are many like it but this one is mine.I chopped 2.5” off the barrel and 4” off the forearm. The pickle is fake. It’s just a cocking handle made from PVC sprayed with truck bed liner. I put about one hundred Crosman pointed pellets through it today. It will never be a tack driver but I was getting half inch groups on paper at 20 yards and nailing the little 1.5” spinners so I backed it up to thirty yards and shot my chi-com resetting target. I was averaging seven shots to get all four spinners and the reset target. Let’s call it plinking accurate at thirty yardsNow If I could find a good quality pellet that it liked. . . .
