.22 Shadow - make offer....
« on: January 10, 2007, 01:12:33 PM »
Last Sept. I bought a .177 Walmart Shadow, and installed a .22 Gamo barrel into it about a month later. I had bought the barrel from Rich, I'm guessing it was a take-off from a .20 conversion he did.

I enlarged the port to 5/32 (.153), because I found that this seems to benefit the .22 guns. The spring in it is an unknown Crosman spring (not a Quest spring), that happens to work fairly well. It's a tighter fit on the Gamo guide (this one has the "skinny" factory guide) and is less twangy than the stock spring, although the power is about the same. I also have the stock spring and tophat spacer to go with it.

It shoots CPHP's at a little over 700fps.

It also comes with a "Shadow Supreme" muzzlebrake, uninstalled.

In all honesty, I'm not desperate to sell it... but I wouldn't mind trying out an MP513 or an RWS34 if I could get enough for this rifle.

If interested, let me know...

So how much would you take cash? Have no trade and do not know about those other two rifles you mentioned....:)

And I am not desperate either for another Shadow  hehe

Don't give me THAT, Mr. Shadow Junkie....

Trouble is, I dunno what it's really worth. I believe that NEW .22 Shadows are a thing of the past. I was hoping to get $140 with a GTX-II trigger in it.

Don't have much but a GAmo 220 hunter in perfect condition.

May be that and some PayPal?

I could trade you some cash Vicneb. I have a couple of .177 shadows and a .22 RWS 350. A .22 shadow would fit in right nicely.

How about...

$120, with a GTX-II trigger and Apex seal installed? Right now, I've got it on Gunbroker, and that's my reserve price. Hasn't been met yet, so I should be able to kill the auction early if you want it.
