I would have thought that the motion detector light would have spooked him off.  Maybe he's been accustomed to it coming on?  I'm trying to decide what type of light to buy and thinking of a solar red landscaping light.  Nothing super bright, but comes on and stays on as it would be my luck that it would turn off before I could get a shot.

Ken, those lights are Infra Red, they aren't visible to the critters!  If they look directly at the camera, they may see a dim red LED but that all.  The work really well with he night vision capabilities of the ATN Scope.

Mine isn't pellet picky at all. I've mainly shot CPUM, Daisy HP, and RWS Hobby pellets in it and it likes them all.

 Light switch cover screws are the same size as the grip screws FYI.

I had some H&N in the .55 head size.  Lost a lot of velocity with those although the accuracy is there.  I think they are pretty tight in the bore.  I would try H&N in something smaller like 54 or even 53 if you can find them.  Good ole Crosman hollow points do pretty well in mine and at $6.24 a tin they’re cheap enough.  Top on my list is the FX or JSB 16 grain for accuracy but I tend to shoot the 362 at cans, paper, or house sparrows at 30 yards or less so the Crosman fit the bill really well.

Man, you know how to have a good time.

I got through the first 25 pages.  This one is a gem!   ;D

Set up my bait station yesterday, with a ding donger.  It's went off 2X last night, but I don't have a light yet.  I suspect that the flashlight spooked whatever it was.  Something licked all of the peanut butter off of the station but left the bird seed, cracked corn, and black sunflower seeds.

It went off again this afternoon at 3PM and a large redtail hawk was about 5' from the ding donger.  We watched it fly up onto a perch then a few minutes later it flew back down closer to the bait station, but about 15' from the ding donger, which did not alarm.  Pics in my Serious about pesting thread.

This evening I moved the ding donger about 3' from the bait station, and rebaited with an apple core and more smeared peanut butter.  Not a sound tonight and it's going on 9PM.  I'm wondering if the red LED on the DD is spooking the rats.

Hunting Gate / #2 Today, this time it was a mouse!

Was checking the critter cam to see if the possum had come by to get his treat and saw this little guy zipping back and forth!  He looked like a challenge and since the Huben K1 was already set up for the cat's bang bottle, I lit up and took him down!



This was a 50 yard shot, through the fence, at a fast moving 3" long critter!  It happened so fast I forgot to even zoom in or adjust the focus.  The scope cam video isn't the clearest, but you can see the hit!

Below are a picture from where I found him under the bush, and one next to the rat from earlier this evening.  The possum should be happy tonight!

If you are talking about the front and rear screws that hold the grip onto the pump tube, there are a couple things to note...

The rear grip frame screw is actually threaded into the rear tube cap (end plug). That one is the easy one and you can either order a new one from Crosman or find them on eBay cheap enough.
End cap part number... 1322B002

The front screw is a bit trickier. It threads through the pump tube but is also threaded into the valve to hold the valve from moving inside the pump tube. If you choose to Tap, you have to tap it as well. You have to be careful with this one as you could tap to far, only tap it as far as it is tapped from the factory. It will take a taper tap to start, then a bottom tap to finish. Personally... You can get a new pump tube from Crosman, or again... Ebay. They are not expensive and might be a better route to go?
Crosman pump tube part number... 1322-065

Are you sure it is not the screws themselves that are stripped?
Rear frame screw...1322A029
Front frame screw... 130B031

Personally, I would try new screws first. They are Zinc and are designed to be the weak point. If you are sure that it is the threaded holes themselves, you might be better off just to replace the end plug and pump tube and use new screws with it. You will be surprised at how cheap these parts are from Crosman and they ship pretty quickly too.  ;)
