countzero1972: Different versions had different ways of de-tuning. Some models had a bleeder hole, and some like mine had a different size piston altogether. one was slightly shorter.. no bleed hole in either.. also likely a different spring, but I never thought to check it.
blaster44100: where do you got that spring and piston ???? thx
Spray Monkey: Correct, there all the same, use the pin and super glue or tap and screw method, AMAZING POWER!
misuseofyou: How does it shoot since you put a 1000 spring and piston in, Noraayrrek?
andrew bueza: where did u get the piston and spring.,,
Papa.Emeritus.II: You are full of crap and lying. Of course this 500 had a ported hole but you just sealed it! Or, as you stated: "but i now installed a 1000fps piston and spring". Not sure why you needed a new spring though? The spring is the exact same in the Canadian version (500) as American (1000) air rifles. The only difference is the ported hole in the piston..
sylver369: I can't speak for the guy who made this video, but I know others who have done this and similar mods, it appears to not have an affect on overall performance, and so far hasn't caused failure of the piston/spring mechanism.
sylver369: Nice that you figured out this mod, I also know people who just stretched the spring and got more power that way.
sylver369: I happen to have a crosman quest 500 sitting next to me on my couch. Both the trigger and the guard are solid iron. Just the housing around them is plastic. I know because it spent some time outdoors, and has a little rust on the metal parts.
anielsen100: watch the video 1/2 inch copper tube from 3/4inch long to 1_1/4inch long.
anielsen100: i did this to my crossman phantom. id say it has about 50lbs-70lbs or so.
shane shane: And how much force does the spring put out when you take out the pin
shane shane: What dimensions do u need the copper tube
Feifeizhang001: @DrewLiscool because of the laws in Canada
royal king: we used a 1' 7/8's spacer and it works real good
anielsen100: i did that to my .22, along with some other stuff and it shoots fast now
braappinc: @noraayrrek how much was the piston and spring and were did u get it from and u live in canada?
noraayrrek: @braappinc i cant remember, i belive it was at the back. but it is very easy to do. good luck
noraayrrek: @pistonskill sorry but my piston had no hole, but i now installed a 1000fps piston and spring
braappinc: hey can u make a diagram of were u put the spacer pls! and pm me it pls and thank you
