Old Crosman rear cocking question
« on: January 12, 2019, 08:24:52 PM »
Can a Crosman 180, 400, etc be converted to cock with the bolt handle like newer Crosmans? I'm thinking all you would have to do is add a pin to the hammer like the later ones and cut a slot in the tube for the pin.

Has anybody done this or considered it?

I considered it on my old 1377 but decided not to. I just put the steel breech and left it a rear cocker. Then, I got a whole new gun to mod.

You would also need to make sure the trigger sear holds the hammer well. Other than that youíve got the gist of it.

I once considered it on a 1377 a long time ago - the thought being it would be  8) er.    But in fact the rear cocking precludes all the little issues with bolt cocking.
