I see the Daisy Museum store also sells the 1250 WS, looks to be the same gun with checkering and a 1250 fps rating. Curious if you can get any Winchester parts?

Had to take a look,(Daisy Museum)HaHa.

Holy Guacamole!  Tried cleaning the barrel on this 1100.  Wonder that it shot at all. 
Went through 10 patches before getting the grease out.  ::)

Can't get over it.  lol

you'll have to scroll down to find his mod. ;D

I removed the sights and put a faux muzzle brake so it doesn't show up in my scope.

Now we're cookin'!

I really like mine, only thing I changed was to put a set of Weaver classic scope mounts, the scope actually works great as well. I like the look of the old school mounts and they fit way better than the supplied ones (they were $8). Great power and accuracy on this gun even out to 60 yards. I whish they made like a 750 version of this for plinking.

Nothing like a crisp trigger... ;)

I also chopped the barrel and slimmed the stock. It's lighter and handles a lot better. It feels more like a rifle and less like a club.

Wow it does look smaller,sleeker.  I have the synthetic stock.   Thanks for all the tips on the trigger, and removal, in the disassembly thread.



I've removed the sights,and stuck a plastic muzzle brake on the barrel end.

Really want to get it apart to get a look at the piston seal and spring, without messing up that trigger.

Thanks again ;D

You're welcome. 

Let me know if you find a replacement piston seal. Mine was marginally okay, but I would like to make a full tune kit for it at some point. I think I just cleaned everything, shimmed the rear guide with a piece of soda bottle plastic, and relubed.

The manual of my 1101WS lists the weight at 8.5 lbs, and it feels about that, somewhat heavy but provides stability. This gun looks and feels more expensive than a $69 gun with the wood. I like everything about this except the plastic trigger guard, I keep my eye out for a metal one I could fit to it.

I will keep you in mind,if I have to track one down. I would think the outfit Vortek would have one  (I have one of there springs in a Crosman 3100)  and I'm guessing the size would be something made for a Hatsan...?

Did adding the soda bottle shim and re-lubing quiet/calm it down a bit?

I tried a Hatsan seal for a "Webley" Tomahawk but it was too loose on the piston - If I remember correctly.

The shim/re-lube calmed it some, but I really need to turn a proper guide out of delrin.

Thanks. Let me know if you get one and how it fits.

BTW, I fired my rifle yesterday and the shot cycle is much nicer than I remembered. It has a slight ringing sound after the shot but I wonder if it's my scope resonating. I'll have to take it off and try again.

It may be a while before I go in.  Still only shooting indoors into a pellet trap. Would like to see how it goes,breaking in.
Maybe not 200 pellets through it yet.  Seems to be shooting good. ;D

Hoping I don't mess anything up getting it apart.

I'm thinking I might be able to de tune it a bit if I substitute a metal washer for the tophat? Rather than cutting coils or replacing the spring.
 (I only have pics of the 1000 to go by at this point).  FPS 800's may be what I'm after.

Removing the top hat might help a little, but the 1000 is a different gun, similar but different.

yep,Thanks, coming to that conclusion. 
Guess when I go in I'll just check everything out,clean everything,probably do the mods of shimming the piston and spring guide with pop bottle,
take some twang out.

Well,went in today and found it well greased,no metal chips,spring flattened on the ends and in good shape.
The piston seal is blue and looks fine!
 While I was taking it down( by what little pictures I could find) and trial and error, a spring popped out from in the trigger. Put it back the only way I could see.  And there is a silver (shim?) the allen screw under the trigger has to go through. I can only get it to go one way.
 I tried shimming the piston.
Put it all back together , found it would not catch,when you try to cock it.
Okay, maybe I don't need that piston shim.
 
I have spent the better part of a day, trying everything I can think of to get this back together and have it work. NOTHING!

I'm thinking its got to be something with that spring.. not just for the trigger,but added tension to the sear???
