I had the pleasure of spending a week shooting this gun, and had a ball! It's no secret I like power, but this gun- even at 200-ish fps- was addictive. I took it apart while it was here and tried a few things like different strength springs and an enlarged air tube, and it responded well to the changes. But too much spring, like my HP spring, serves no real purpose in this gun- it's forte is as a speed shooter, not as a powerhouse. Shane brought along a custom shot tube made to fit both 6mm airsoft BBs and 1/2" cork balls, and while I didn't have any cork balls to shoot, the airsoft BBs were a hoot!

Mark,    Shane sent me that same gun to "test". I agree 100% with your evaluation. The gun is an example of perfect craftsmanship...in my opinion it is museum quality, and definitely one-of-a-kind. My understanding is that Shane will be building more and offering them for sale, A person could spend hours on his web site watching all his "work-shop" videos.  He has a remarkable knowledge of the Red Ryder!
