Donít make the hobby a career youíll hate it. I used to love motorcycles, now I donít even look at them anymore after working on motorcycles for a living for 15 years so thank goodness I donít do that anymore. I would never ruin my air gunning hobby thatís just me. Now I repair commercial kitchen equipment, Iíve never cared about commercial kitchen equipment so it works out

I was going to have a work buddy 3D print a rear peep sight for my 2240 but a milled aluminum one crossed my mind.
Such a small part not sure if the project would be cost effective for either of us but PM me if you're interested.

As a suggestion moding a 2240 and 13xx valve and posting before and after chrony results might get you a fan base .....
A ton of us believe a 6fpe stock gun can be modded to a hunter....
Welcome to GTA sir.

IOWOLF:
Some of you wanted to see what I have done in the past. I found some of the crosman 1100/DAQ shot pistol Shells I made some of them are aluminum I don't do the stainless steel anymore, And one Was commercially made back in the day don't know if they do anymore.

 Of course it won't let me post a friggin picture.

You could start with scribbles on a napkin, That's how a lot of my jobs get started.

I'd start with something simple, e.g., 22xx SSG device in brass or SS that looks really nice---- send out feelers.

The ones I've seen are just too crude with hardware nuts looking like sore eyes.

You could replace those with something machined and knurled.

..or silencer adapters in brass, alum, or SS.

Complex stuff are not worth the effort, IMHO.

Show me, as I don't know what a  SSG is, though I know and have a 2240 based gun.
