Not a lot of traffic on the Dragonfly, so I thought I'd stir the pot.  Nothing new besides a few pictures.  I love this gun!  I've owned Sheridans, Bejamins, and Crosmans, but this is the best pump gun Ive ever owned.

Forgot to add.  All I have done is replace the rubber piston buffer with a solid nylon spacer, and install the aftermarket 2-stage trigger from Steve in NC.  And I cleaned the barrel.  Holy SH!T you need to do this!  I also did the round-head brass screw crown job, but honestly that didn't make a noticeable difference.

what your thought on the cocking linkage, I see one person had a failure in a PA review

and I also see this rifle has the same barrel and sights  as the Diana Stormrider, it's a small world isn't it

you did some tinkering to get it to where you like it and replaced the rear sight with a Williams sight to give a longer sight line, so with the sight and the rifle we are in 215.00 buck range with shipping if any and if the linkage is fine, it looks like a good deal

the cover you put on the back part of the barrel, the reason and is it hard to pump

It's not overly hard to pump for me, since with the piston spacer I'm getting high 780s from just 5 pumps.  I seldom pump more than that.  For basement shooting, I only use 3 pumps, which gives me 670s, 10M velocities.  I have had no issues with the cocking linkage. A drop or two of secret sauce on the bolt and pivot points made a difference.  The barrel cover is just there for comfort.
