1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    you should have great fun and be able to spend loads of money !

    Here's my C2260 Rabbitstopper with a 10 shot self-indexing breech/magazine and an HPA/PCP conversion:

    and a C2250 Ratcatcher with metal breech, longer barrel, HPA/PCP conversion and custom stock:

    When it comes to customising Crosmans, you are limited only by your imagination and your wallet !

    Thanks For all the advice. i hope to finish with something looking like your C2260 presume your breech will also fit the 2250, Is it the gmac multi shot breech?
    Can you put a 2260 main tube on a 2250 trigger system?

    It is the gmac multi-shot breech. It will fit all 22xx variants.

    The 2260 has a different trigger group than the 2240/50 so I don't know if they will fit a 2240/50 tube.

    At a guess I would say "probably" - but don't hold me to that.

    I found myself in your very position once upon a time, and I so wish someone had told me to save my money, unfortunately nobody did, and I merrily blew close to £500 on my Crosman. Great fun all the way through the journey of moding her up. But at the end of the journey, I so wish I had chucked all that money at something like an Ultra. One of the biggest money pits I have ever fallen in to. Be warned, KB1

    I bought the Rabbitstopper as standard, second hand.

    About £100 each for the breech and the HPA/Bulk fill conversion.

    Or you could go All out silly and end up with something like this but I Doubt you'd want to spent the money to get to this stage ! This isn't Quite a ratty but a Ratty/SMK Hybrid (2278/9). The same can be achieved however with a Ratty.

    Your a bad man sticking pictures up like this. You are grooming more innocent individuals, who don't know any better, in to parting with a shed load of money. You should be ashamed of yourself. And whilst we are on the subject, that looks bloody awesome. I want one. LOL KB1:protest::protest::protest:
