Default Shinsung Career III 300 .22


about a year ago i posted i topic about my Korean airguns, i haven`t been around for a while and no new threads in the Korean sector.

I like Korean airguns, especially Shinsungs. I don`t know why but i don`t think that matters My first PCP was a BAM B50 in .177, the second one was a BSA Techstar in .22 wich i still have. The third one was a Shinsung Career III 300 in .22. This is the second 300 i`ve got. I bought the first one in 2007 i think. This one:

A pretty standard Career wich shot bloody hard. Over here in the Netherlands people had strong opinions about these Koreans. They said the guns were ugly. As if that matters, it`s about the shooting and not about the looks. They said these guns shot too hard and ya coudn`t hit anything with such power and speed. I found out i could hit lotsa things with it. And people said the triggers were awfull. Maybe that`s true, but hey, there`s a place in this world for less sophisticated airguns! Not every trigger has to be adjustable in 1000 ways for as far as i was concerned. It`s just shooting f*ing hard and that`s just what i want.

The standard valve housing can easlily be given some more room to breathe properly. Here`s the standard one.

Using a file or a mill to work open the housing of the spring that closes the spring and and making the valve seating tapered gives way to compressed air to flow easily.

The powerwheel increases or decreases the stroke of the hammer.

You can shoot as fast as you can operate the sturdy sidelever.

300`s are known to leak. The neat aluminum front end of the gun....

Is easily maimed by tools....

but with the right parts it`s looking good again.

To be continued.........
