    I'm sure others can give a better explanation than I can, here's my take on it.
    It's when you hold the gun snug but not to tight to your shoulder and then just lay the forarm in your open palm. Like holding a hotdog in the open palm of you hand while you shoot.
    This supposedly allows the gun to do it's recoil thing without all the bad side effects it causes ?
    This what I get from reading about it and watching U-tube videos on the subject.

    Pretty crazy, right?!? Where did the time go? Anyway, it's this community that makes it successful, and I thank one and all who takes interest in these BB guns.

    View attachment 1050348 20220107_092354.jpg 20220107_092413.jpg 20220107_092627.jpg 20220107_092313.jpg 20220107_092323.jpg Congratulations and a happy new year to everyone. I wanted to share one of my latest builds I will definitely have to get a video on.A crutch gun 1938B...with a telescopic barrel. It fits both young ones, and adults. Similar to my long gun builds, I fabbed a larger diameter shot tube to the plastic tip. It resembles a bottle cap shottube .It then slips over the main BB shot tube, and is centered in place with a shaped and oiled hot glue washer. To fill it, unscrew the tip, slide it out a couple of inches, fill, replace. It fired a test shot pretty darn good. But I finally need to polish the chamber, and am in need of a new wiper seal. So I will have to fab one or a few of those up as well. It's a very sturdy solid feeling gun. I whittled the forestock more dimension to accept the original band. On the rear stock, I've given it more reciever attachment 'girth' and French polished both.I've lost the elevator for the rear sight so incorporated a daisy precision Bb in its place

    Great work !
    The madd scientist is at it again, I wish I had your imagination.
    How do you think of these guns?
    You need a job in Daisy's research and development dept., I bet it would be a real eye opener for them.
    Keep up the good work !
    Terry

    Likewise on the ingenuity Terry. I just got my order in on those CF tubes. Very tight tolerances indeed. Now I'm really itching for another build. I have a 1999BE on the wall, I'm wanting to do a custom build on, and I do believe the CF shot tube is a must have. thanks for pushing me over the ledge on that purchase. Things are about to get interesting

    I'm happy I could be of some help BBC.
    Yea, ya have to be careful witch BB's ya put in the gun with the CF, we are shooting muzzle loaders so we know if they are going down all the way .
    In fact that's why I made ramrods for our guns.
    I've found that some BB's will stick a little at the muzzle but with a little "lite" persuasion they go on down to the breach. I put a mark on the ramrod to show if he BB is seated, you may be able to see it in the last picture I posted?
    I am sure whatever your next project is it will be a good one, looking forward to it.

    Guys, I ran across a (poor quality) Daisy drawing/parts list for the model 770. It sports an interesting, no-air tube design for a repeater. As shown in the drawing, the powerplant resembles that of a No. 25 pump gun. The BB delivery system uses a shuttle (770 AT), and the red-circled part is an air transfer port that looks to be sized for the application, judging by the slender front portion. Food for thought.

    On another front, I am dealing with a bad foot that will have me sidelined for a while. I hope to be back in good shape soon, but in the meantime my participation might be sketchy.

    Y'all carry on- I'm sure more good things are in the wings!

    Regards, Mark

    Sorry to hear - I'm currently in a somewhat similar situation, but we're doing what we can.
    Not a lot out there on the Model 770. Certainly an interesting mechanism.

    Stay warm & get well soon!

    Cheers!

    That plunger assembly body appears perplexing, and intriguing.

    I was in need of a new oil wiper. So I put 2 and 2 together, and you can make one too. It's a 7/16" rubber grommet, with 2 layers of felt sheet. I have the felt anchored down in place with some 26g. Wire between the felt walls, with a drop of adhesive applied around the I. D of the felt. I was amazed at how much oil it absorbed with a dropper on the table. I would guess around 3ml. It installs and functions as it should. And manages to keep the chamber walls evenly lubed and polished. This felt doesn't seem as coarse as the common standard punched felt oil wiper and makes full contact. An added upside also is that the rubber grommet makes contact against the plungerhead pin for the airtube. It's just an added assurance it stays put. The pin can still be easily installed and removed with your fingers. I have found that with a standard compression spring installed, the rubber grommet will keep the spring in place while removing the plungerhead pin which makes for swapping airtubes pretty quick. I hope yall like it. I believe I'm going to make this a standard on all my personal springers.

    re: Model 770
    www.ebay.com/itm/185254407762

    Link to Ebay - one currently for sale - shows pictures of the 770 AT **** Transfer, Assy. removed from gun (needs replaced).
    Gives a little better insight of the mechanism - appears to scoop up a BB during cocking and spring back to firing position.
    A thru-hole connects the air transfer port (that Cobalt circled) thru the BB scoop to the breech of the shot tube.

    Cheers!
