First two came out junk so I found this one and ripped out a proto of this one and it turned out much better. I only need a small portion of if. The solid one is printing right now and I expect it to look the same.


what are you using it for?

on top? or underneath ?

I plan to mount a small laser sight on it. Ethere underneath or on the side. If i do side I can drill and tap as there is some metal there on the bottom I feel the need to hog out the bracing where ill put a nut then add in some epoxy.

I shimmed my breech seal on my P17, and added 7 layers of alum tape. I achieved my goal of 400 fps with 8.6grn pellets.

Stared at 7 tins of pellets on my work desk that will be shot out of the KP, day dreaming about shooting paint balls at 75yds with it. Still waiting on one more tin from PA and the rest from FS.  ;)

In the following order AA S510 .177 then Air Speed .25 and last but not least my RS II .22. Best of all I put 9 pellets through a single hole barely larger than the pellet and the first 5 were literally through the same hole then panic took over and the last 4 made the hole very slightly larger. I can do the stacked pellets with the RS II and S510 on a very regular basis but this is new with the Air Speed .25 I never expected to stack pellets with the semi automatic Air Speed but since I did the pellet probe mod this rifle is steadily improving in the accuracy department.

My first five shots for the day, just made up some targets and here's the target and the gun that I shot them with.

Well I've had a chance to shoot all five of my Crosman 150's and this is definitely the best one of the bunch, it has
the best trigger, it shoots the best for me and it's really in decent shape for a gun that's almost my age.  It actually
seems to be the smoothest operating for any of them, the thing that I really like about the type 1's is the fact that
when the slide is back there's a lot of room to put the pellets in.
Of course I was using my 19.5 grain castings for this, these were from a 600 batch I did two days ago 8)

Just started an animation in blender using cycles render for 10 pictures of my Crosman 150's and by the looks of it it might be done today some time.  Takes a long time doing animation in cycles render on blender 8)
