The planed two stage trigger is not going well. So far my drawings have not come up with the answer.
 Even a rough mock up doesn't work with the Gamo trigger levers.
Should have realised that in the beginning. That is why the Charlie da Tuna GRT trigger is single stage.

The Charlie da Tuna GRT trigger is a 2 stage trigger.

Did you finish your Gamo 440 project? I remember you mentioned you had one on kiwi airgunners when I posted about restoring my one.

Do you still want one James? I have 2 Zoraki's so I might let one go, swap for your Diana 460? :-)

Hi Mike,
That was an interesting read about preventing hammer bounce by catching the hammer. Pics of the pistol look amazing too.

I haven't forgotten about the PCP pistol build. I've been slowly acquiring some bits. I have LW barrel and a pressure tube with a valve and hammer block. I have just bought some 7075 Aluminium for the fill end plug, so I will be machining that to size and drilling for the fill probe an non return valve and pinning it with the set screws.

Given overall length is going to be about 450mm, one thing I'm still trying to decide, is the position for the grip. I have been thinking about using a trigger linkage so the grip can be a bit further forward avoid being overly front heavy.

Thanks for the info guys. I too get pissed off with laws that affect the otherwise lawful and reasonable person more than the criminal. eg I bet not many if any 10M PCP target rifles have been used in serious crimes.

Nice, that's one strong looking trigger guard.

Another question, can the resulting pistol be given to a person without a fal?
Its an older Falcon air rifle with a left hand stock.

General Airgun Discussion / converting a pcp air rifle to a pistol

I am undertaking or at least about to undertake building a pcp pistol. I was going to use a crosman 2250 as the starting point so I could use the barrel, breech and trigger from this. But I think I may be able to obtain a pcp rifle which should give me a better quality barrel and breech to start from, also I can reuse the valve and hammer and just shorten the air cylinder. Would this be legal or just a crime against the air rifle concerned  :-)

Hi Wingman,
Thanks for the help. I was planning to use the cap screw head method for retaining the end plug and valve. I'm in the process of adding the calcs for the tube wall yield and screw head shear to my spread sheet.
