Rich, the adjustment screw is the flathead screw right next to the butt cap where the CO2 goes. Screw it all the way in for low power. Turn it one click out for medium and all the way out for full power.

A good friend died and I received several of his BB guns.

One that I really liked is the Plainsman 175. It didn’t work and it appeared that someone placed the co2 cylinder

backwards and tried to tighten it up crushing the puncture pin.

After contacting several airgun re builders I was referred to

A guy in WA that fairly repaired my gun and changed out the butt cap to take the 12gr co2 cylinder which made shooting much cheaper!

When I got it back and fired it for the first time I was impressed with the power and accuracy. It will hold a charge and doesn’t leak down.

Below is Doug’s info.

Thanks for the help, guys. I bought my Plainsman in a junk shop about 10 years ago for $5 bucks. It is in good shape with the exception of the grips. The right one is cracked and someone messed up the left one with a soldering iron. Go figure. The seal is also missing on the CO2 chamber, but that is no biggie. I could use some assistance on finding the correct CO2 bottle used on these pistols. Anyone know where to find some?

I’ve still got the one I purchased new back in the mid to late 70’s. It’s a little rough looking now but still shoots great. I use it to keep the racoons out of that cat’s food on the back porch. They don’t like it too much. 🙂

this is a rare gun to find cheap. i luckily picked mine up at a pawn shope for 12 bucks, missing the bottom plug. once i found a butt plug for it i took it to the range. i am impressed! three power settings the lowest about 350 f.p.s. and highest chronoed at 560-600 wich is incredible for a gun of this type. also it hols 100 bb’s in its reservoir, i dont know of any pistols with that kind of capacity now days! if you can find one hold on to it as they are very collectible right now and getting very scarce. due to the fact they were so cheap most got thrown in the garbage but i have seen a perfect on in box go for over 300 dollars.
