So im off work for a while due to an injury at work and really bored ok
i have this crossman quest was giving to me a few years ago and i must admit it has been a realy accurate and good shooting rifle , shot something in the 870's with CP's and shot very well. i have a turantula spring and apex seal sitting here and decided to tune this thing just to see what i can get out of it. lots of polishing was in order inside and anything that moved was more or less fixed (redesigned) or polished so that it moved smoothly and effortlessly. trigger was a very small issue just polished it up a bit. looked good to go back together. used the standard moly paste everywhere i had a friction point and of course the compression tube and seal (very little doesnt take much). after i got it back together it did indeed cock like a new rifle with a bit more ummph. most likely cause i was looking for it. like i said before it was a good shooter and ran 870's on an average. took it outside and shot it a few times. didnt feel much different to shoot, but it wasnt twangy at all anyway before , all shots were off sandbag rests and heres the raw data
7.9 gr CP's avg 895 at 14.05 fpe
10 shot string
i had to shoot indoors so i have 18 yards to play with.
top target was a scope zero
