If this were long tem survival (not homesteading) I would choose my traditional recurve or long bows over any air gun.
They are very simple and reliable.
I can even make my own arrows if I have to.
I saw this and want to try making a Meatloaf.
How do you cook when you are away from home?

The return to stock was mentioned in another post.
I've more carefully pushed some rounds through and think I might be able to fix this.
But the worst point of constriction is right at the spot where the steady rest was clamped down, could be coincidence, could be root cause. Would need to know what the order of operations are to determine if this caused the barrel to constrict. I'll get the scope out before I start and see what's what.
Not going to be able to get decent images of the rounds, the older dark lead shows some areas around the lands to be distorted, and that one high spot in the groove showing a small scratch.
I also have a constriction at the muzzle, I know these aren't choked so I need to look at this again.
Didn't have time or ability to do more than push a few rounds through it tonight, will need to wait until tomorrow.

walmarts in boise, idaho still have the original prices, for any locals wondering (as of an hour ago)

Same $8.93 price on Amazon and Walmart.
It's good I stocked up when I could find them.
According to the government people the inflation is transitory, just like life

I’m glad I bought extra mags last month when they were on sale at Midway. I have the Akela in .22 and Kratos in .25. Leaning toward .22 for the Gunnar. Curious what the shot count will be?

Or the new guy’s first attempt to solder in a valve, then ‘fixed’ just before it got boxed up?
Jon is that what the hole is for?

Makes me wonder even more if the fix would be the flat head piston seal with o-ring. I say this only because I am not sure Mac1 was producing this item in 2012. I think the flathead piston seal with o-ring became a viable option for the 101 sometime in 2014 and nearly the time the flathead seal and o-ring became a modification for increased performance in the Crosman 1377 & 1322.
Let me do some lookin I think I have a Mac1 seal and if I do I will let you know and will gift it to you for your 102. The nice part about using one on a 101 or 102 is there is no need to use a Dremel tool like the video shows on the S&W Model 77A he demonstrates on. It screws on and if it is loose fitting some JB weld will fix that up or some really good super glue.
Well Zack, you at least have some excellent pests to well, imbed with lead! Hey…that rhymes! LOL! Smart move to let the rabbit population increase, it should exponentially!
