Was it the Poison or the Barracuda that was known for having a ferociously difficult trigger pull?

Oh- and none of these earlier BE guns had a vertical ASA adapter. If memory serves me, this metal Stingray did.

Probably the Barracuda, since it was a double action.

And be amazed at my amazing interwebz skillz . From an old archive of STInG.

"Here in brief is how I built my Stingray. First I made some scale drawings of my stock Stingrays internals, and I recorded all their dimensions. Over these drawings I drew various body designs until I decided on one. Then came late nights and long weekends in front of a milling machine and lathe, machining blocks of billet aluminum into the two body halves, trigger frame, expansion chamber, and its mounting block. I then made an aluminum sleeve to go over the factory barrel, and welded them together. Then I machined a new hammer tube out of brass and a new aluminum end cap for it.Then using jeweler's rouge and a polishing pad mounted to an electric drill I polished all to a mirror finish.

Internal Modifications are many. Some of the more unusual include a faced-off valve seal retainer, a faced-off hammer (pin lengthened), ported and polished valve stem, and the installation of a speed demon internal velocity adjuster. After all this 300+fps became a reality. I used a Ram line pistol grip and covered the expansion chamber with a padded grip.An aluminum trigger and trigger job along with a raised dovetail sight rail are next."

The only elbows I bother with on mine are the soft plastic 'Atomic Elbows' with 2 hose clamps. The hard plastic kind won't hold up to the pounding recoil without slipping like yours in the pic.

When you have a Crossman stock propped against your shoulder, the whole thing pivots up with each shot almost like a real firearm. I love shooting mine.

That is an awesome Stingray. Who made it? I wonder where it is now.

Opps, forgot to copy that part. It was made by Jeff Wilkins. I have no clue where it or he is right now.

That is one awesome 'ray. I still have my original Stingray II. If I ever win the lottery I'd love to find a GE too... those things are beautiful.
