    How'd you like the forearm grip on the Backpacker? I'm thinking about getting one for my carbine 1377. Looks like the fatter grip would be easier to hold while pumping. In black it would also look better.

    Considering my 1377 came with a really skinny forend like shown here, the old backpacker forend sure fills the hand better. There's not much weight increase either due to the plastic construction of both forends.

    Make that three 1377s now. I couldn't help myself for $35 rollback price at Walmart. I've got a steel breech,shoulder stock, and LPA rear sight coming for the new one. So I'll have carbine w/steel breech and iron sights with option of optics, a scoped carbine, and a stock pistol. I'm trying to upgrade without getting too crazy.(I may have crossed that line) Trying to keep the total cost to $150-175 but it ain't easy. It would be easy to spend ten times the cost of the stock gun. BTW, I'm very happy with the Cleavercraft mount.

    Gotta love the various Crosman 1377's, 1322's and old Crosman 130 as well as the CO2 2240s and 2250s. As far as accuracy, performance and fun for the dollar spent I just don't think they can be beat.... My favorite of them all though is the 1377...

    Addictive for sure and easy to take apart to replace parts and modify.

    Yeah I think both my 1322 and 2240 are more replacement or modified parts than original. Love those little guns.

    I use mine around the house to dispatch critters that get caught in glue traps!

    Wood grips would be a nice upgrade which I may do sometime if I see grips that I really like. Of my three 1377s, the one that gets shot the most is the one with the plastic carbine stock, steel breech and Williams sight. I just came in from shooting it standing from sixty feet, four to five pumps, hitting the lid of a pellet tin consistently. That's by a 67 year old with failing eyesight. The last shot I pumped it 8 times it passed through dead center. IMG_1140.JPG These inexpensive little guns amaze me.The scoped carbine with the Cleavercraft mount and the Bug Buster is a bit heavy but fun to shoot off a rest pushing the range limits of the gun. The pistol configuration with the steel breech and Williams sight gets about equal time as the scoped one.

    The YHM wooden grips sold by D&L are pretty nice:

    Mine needed a little bit of carving to fit me perfectly, but that's normal for carved wooden grips. There's enough wood on them to allow for a fair range of hand shapes and sizes. A couple of rub-downs with the old Tru-oil and they're good to go.

    There are about a million mods that can be used on these guns. I do not have a 1377 but do have a Crosman 2250 which I bought used for $10.00 also which has all kinds of upgraded mods. I put a steel breech on mine and a TKO suppressor, a Walther Lothar barrel and a Bug Buster scope. Makes the gun virtually silent. I love to shoot rats at night. Surprisingly they are quite a elusive quarry.

    This brings back memories. A Crosman 1377 was my first grown-up gun since my cap pistol days, bought on a whim at the tender age of 50 or so. Be warned: it is an expensive first step, as that one pistol can lead to guns that are bigger, louder, heavier, more fun and much more money.

    Those Crosman 'intermounts' are also okay for mounting under barrel accessories like flashlights or forearm grips when used w/a dovetail to Picatinny adapter like below.

    Not the best thing in the world to do, for the gun at least, but if you pour a pinch of salt down the barrel, it turns into a wicked little mini shotgun which is great for pesting spiders and hornets. At 12 in, it will take the paint off a soda can. I get banana spiders in my yard that are three and a half inches long. It obliterates them.

    I wonder if playground sand would be better for the gun. I think I might be able to use some from my daughter's old "turtle" sandbox, which is covered, but she hasn't been in in years. In fact, I might have half a bag left over in the garage..

    Sand is harder than salt, so it'll erode the rifling faster than salt. But it's up to you whether you want to kill your barrel and make it a dedicated wasp gun.

    ^^ Yeah, it probably would. Besides, I rarely encounter just one wasp. For multiples, the spray I've been using is just fine.

    I would expect either salt or sand would destroy the gun before long. You might be able to find something less corrosive than salt and less abrasive than sand that would do the same thing. You could buy a lot of hornet spray that has a 20 ft range with the money you would have to spend on a new barrel. That's not to mention the sand and salt particles that get into the internals of the gun.

    Yes, but that wouldn't be any fun. I know salt is no good for the gun, but they're cheap. I don't care. I have one that I've been shooting salt out of for years, and it's still functions. The bolt is a little sticky, that's about it.

    You're right, they're cheap. I got mine for $34 rollback at Walmart. Your gun proves how durable these guns are. I wouldn't have expected it to last that long shooting salt. Keep blasting those hornets. Must be like shooting skeet.
