Scorpion

Post by Cankiller » Wed Mar 20, 2019 11:19 am

So I have Scorpion in .177 that was only shooting at 380 fps so I took it apart and saw it needed at least a new buffer, which is the spacer behind the piston head with the O ring .So I managed to get the parts from T. Chambers. Also got a new spring as the original was pretty torqued out.Wouldn't cock at first so went back in and shortened the spring a tad. Got everything back together after clean and lube . I also managed to put in some nylon washers to reduce metal on metal contact. It's now shooting consistently at 540 fps. I'm pretty happy with that. Would love a Scorp in .22. Something to search for.

About 5 ft lbs with a Superdome. They always were a powerful pistol.

I’m going off to go find myself. If I’m not back by the time I return, keep me here.
