Best of the Best
Hmm.. Rifle or Pistol?
Custom 2250 created by Dave Welker
This custom 2250 was made by Dave Welker. He did all the metal work himself using company equipment. It's guns like this that inspired me to create Airgun Artisans in the first place.

So I bought this old fiddle case on Ebay from a woman who said a very imaginative fellow gave it to her with a bottle of red wine and two glasses inside. What do you suppose that dude was up to? It is a coffin style case and dates back to the 1800's. It is made of wood, kind of fragile and all beat up. So I fiddled with it. Left the nicks and gouges in it, gave it a coat of paint and new interior. Guess what I use it for? Ahh, you peaked.

|"This is my first custom airgun. It was originally a standard 2250. When my husband gave it to me, I thought it was the ugliest thing I had ever seen. I didn’t know they could be customized at the time. He got the grips from Ralph, the muzzle break was custom from Larry, the breach is from RJ machine and all the other brass pieces were made by Art. Now it is something I like to use and see. When I get a good hit on the soda cans, it shows what a nice airgun it is with some power behind it."|

|I finally found a good way to hang the 22ci Wevo HPA tank from the .32 caliber 22xx I built. I am using macroline quick disconnect fittings and 12 inches of macroline. The gun uses HPA at 1125 psi, coming through a modified Nitro Duck I-reg regulator. Here’s what the gun looks like now:|

Take a closer look at the nice clean lines. Really Cool!
|I am going to order one, but would like to see what some of the ones that y'all have put together. Here is some picks of my 2400 custom shop Woodie along with grips and a 13xx forearm. What do you think? Have wood will build.|
|Leo's long range rifle...|
Another nice gun built by Leo
I have had this gun put together
for some time but just recently put a bipod on it. My goal for this gun
was a lot of power and maximum accuracy. I think I have achieved it. It
does 810-820 fps with CO2 on a warm day and 875 fps with 850-900 psi of
HPA and will do a lot more once I can get a modded regulator.
The accuracy is out of this
world on this gun. Here is a target that I shot this morning. I have not
yet shot groups at farther than 55 yards but can consistently hit
1.5" metal squares at 75 yards. The groups were shot in the prone
The parts and mods to those
parts, for those that are interested, include:
This is my most shot gun and
will remain that way. It is so much fun to shoot, very accurate and
powerful. I took a 25 lb raccoon with 2 shots last week. The second shot
was to make sure it was down, one would have done the job.

|Nice looking family photo|
Here is a trio of projects I
just finished. The top one is a 2400 from the Crosman Custom shop
in a Steve Cochran stock. It's had several internal mods and
shoots between 580-600 fps on a 12g Co2 cartridge with a ported custom
shop valve. The Middle one is a 2250 with a Crooked Barn Max Flow
Bulk valve and trigger work. It's shooting over 700 fps. The
bottom one is probably my favorite for some reason. It's a 2240
with a Crooked Barn 12g Boss valve and lots of porting work. I'm
using one of MaxZ's bulk adapters and an RJMachine Hi-Rise breech.
It shoot's in the 650 fps range. All have LDC's from Rich in Mich
and heavier hammer springs by me. I'm sure I'm forgetting
something, but I can't remember what it is right now.

Nice little family started!
I have been hard at work again with my toys- little brother needed guidance so Big Brother was called in for training----B&A bulk valve totally modified-ported 14" long barrel -RJ long breech- delrin breech riser and forearm and ventilated 1"OD carbon fiber with brass ends shroud all by LarryR-extended bolt and brass o-ringed handle and trigger work by Roy-BSA 6x24 platinum scope- this rifle hits very hard and very accurate it weighs 4.8lbs with scope-I think they look good together!-Rich
A new long-range sniper
Looks like a new vsrsion of Crosman Ted Williams 126.1909
Calvin's neat little carbine
Sure is a nice looking gun.
here is a carbine that i threw together over the past couple of days with spare parts and mule gun parts. this one has a 12" .22 lothar walther barrel under a 1" carbon fiber shroud, overall length 31". did not get a chance to put it over the chrony today, but a fill of 2200 psi gives me about 12 shots. i will try to chrony it tomorrow, but by this weekend for sure. it is a 2250 tube with modified 2250 valve, delrin valve stem, secured valve with two 10 x 32 screws, mounted onto a crosman 262 stock, with DAQ .25 breech.
a question for those of you shooting jsb 16 gr. have you noticed any particular velocities that those pellets don't shoot accurately at? my talon is shooting arount 750 fps and doesn't group well with them, and my career shooting at the same velocities also does not group well with them. strangely, this little carbine also does not group well with them either, but my crosman 160 with peeps is awesome with them at 25 yds. maybe i need to try different velocities, but i need to get a new variety of fodder to play with also.
Michael Hossack's Custom 2250B
Lots of very fine parts on this one.
She's getting 800+ fps with 15 grain round
balls. I expect over 900 fps with a Beeman Laser.
She's powered by a remote line attached to a 72ci Pure Energy 3000 psi tank with a factory 850 psi regulator.

Mini Me Condor
My kids call This gun the "mini me Condor". I was built by Roy at MountainAir/Photo22 and it's running off a 1200psi 13ci Regalated air tank from Matt Bean. The setup also has Rick Andres rosewood grips and Mac-1 machined PB/AS adapor with a Roy at MA Carbon fiber shroud over an 18" well setup Cosman barrel by Roy W. combind with a RJMachine high rise breech. In the sight department, the Bushnell Banner 6-24x40 is the tool I chose for this rig. After setting things up and getting the Reg. set right the gun is doing:
Total shots=92 off the Reg. with a 3000psi fill 13ci tank.
Avg. FPS= 719.6 with CP’s 14.3gr
Avg. FPE= 16.4
Avg. FPS= 605.6 with Kodiak's 21.0gr
Avg. FPE= 17.1

I finally had an opportunity to shoot it for the first time today since it is finally all together, I was extremely pleased with the results. I haven't even done the poly transfer mod to it and I am getting 675-680FPS using 14.3gr CPs with the adjuster all the way in. With the adjuster turned down I get about 625FPS using 14.3gr CPs. I shot a couple of 21.1gr Beeman Kodiaks at about 570FPS. 14.6gr Beeman FTS were doing about 650FPS with max power. I imagine the poly transfer port mod will put me above the 700FPS mark with 14.3gr CPs on max power. Shot count on max power setting was about 15-17 shots, with it turned down I can get over 20.
Accuracy is excellent, I am printing about 1/2" at 20 yards without really trying too hard. I didn't take any pics of groups yet, but I will in upcoming days.
Next things to do will be a HDD for higher shot count and maybe the poly transfer port mod. Really, 680FPS is more than enough power for my range of shooting, so I may not do it. But I would like more shots though, so the HDD is a must.
This gun is definitely my favorite shooter so far. It's accurate, powerful, looks great(IMHO). I am going to have a great time shooting this gun for many years. Thank you to all of the guys(Grant Stace, Tim McMurray, Art Braden, Roy Weid) that make the incredible parts that allow me to build such a fine gun. I couldn't do it without you guys.
Here are some photos of the completed gun in various configurations(open sights and scoped with the LDC). Also there are some shots of the chrony numbers I was getting. Here are the first 6 shots through the chrony with a brand new CO2 cartridge shooting 14.3gr CPs at max power: 676.2, 678.5, 677.9,680.0,675.6,676.2
Hope you enjoy, I know I do!
|I finally finished my
new 2250 MasterWolf and wanted to share.
It's been 6 months and lot of work in the making and
still to come, is a 11mm to weaver scope adaptor and power adjustor - but they are just icing on the cake
It's got the 24" barrel and custom silencer specially designed for co2, RJ Machine Long breech and extended bolt
added the 2260 tube to it with a 2240 barrel band to keep it all in place,B & A BOSS valve and tube bulk kit
custom port and transfer mod,Trigger tune and hammer spring re-jig, 2 stage seer
Bipod from NcStar with custom tube mount modification
still to come
11mm dovetail to Weaver/Picatinnay adaptor for the top rail, side/bottom rail mounts
power adjustor,HDD - if i can ever find on that works with RJ's breech, or
lightened/custom hammer mod,possible tank bulk mod as a back up for when out in the bush
so a slightly insane project, but loads of fun

Brandon Ripple's Custom 2250
Here's my custom 2250 and a list
of what you see (and can't see) in the photos. It performs well enough
at 22 good shots on a cartridge at full power. The first cock on the
dual power hammer allows a whole bunch of shots at about 400 fps with
the JSB Exacts. It's real quiet too.

|Updated photos 05/13/2009|
Updated 07/06/09 Added the buttstock for rifle standing position, and elevated the sight with a BT scope riser, put a Walther "Night Force" laser red dot and torch on the right weaver rail, and a BSA "Hunter Series" RGB dot sight, Replaced the 2400KT/2250B/XT action tube with one from a 2260 - and extra barrel band for securing the previously whippy 24" barrel. The gun is now even more amazingly accurate than with the shorter tube, and gets at least 40 solid power shots. I refer to it as the Black Russian From NY, or the Emporer RatCatcher for those UK fans of the 2250. I am done modifying the gun, and the attached link will take you through the hole evolution of development from a pistol with open sights and a laser red dot to what you see in attached pic:

|I have no idea how many fps, but it shoots
straight, groups well, and hits hard out to 30 yards, which is my max
indoor distance. And yes, that indoor length is correct.
The "standard" improvements include a BOSS valve, poly transfer seal, recrowned muzzle, and an HDD is in the tool box waiting for installation.
Blue Fork Design's grip frame. There is virtually no trigger creep, and requires only a few ounces to pull, with very little over travel; it's shocking at first, but awesome once you're used to it.
The CAA grip is for a standard AR/M series rifle. It has multiple inserts to fit every hand size; it's very comfortable.
The forward grip is by FAB and folds down for another pistol grip, offering a number of hold options in the field.
The tapered Picatinny rail is for an AR handle but it levels out the difference between the grip frame and the homemade tube band almost perfectly.
The flashlight mount is also from CAA and has a quick release for use off the gun, and on a belt clip. That's one of my favorite features, as I wear the flashlight for work anyway.
It's a high rise stainless breech by Don Cothran, with the jewelling done by me.
The shroud is by Alejandro and really finishes off the tactical look.
And the shoulder stock alterations have been done by me.
|The stock is the original stock that comes on a 2250, and that came with my gun. I cut the pistol grips off and flipped it over so the bottom became the cheak piece. Then I bored it out to fit to the rear of the main tube with some telescoping aluminum pieces. The rear of the stock was then cut off, and realigned with some aluminum plate so it fit my shoulder just right. The original plan was to match up a CAA stock for a real AR rifle, but after the original stock worked out so well I decided to stick with it. The price was right too~ free.
Andrew J Pocock's AS2250
can't take a lot of credit beyond bolting the parts together and
spending some time polishing the trigger and sear but I now have a high
powered airgun that shoots nice tight groups out to 40 yards.
