    A little patch of tissue paper could be used as a cup. Just poke the paper into the muzzle with a dowel slightly smaller than the bore, leaving the paper flaring a bit like a funnel. Pour in some salt. Fold over one corner of the paper to keep the salt from pouring out when pointing downward, then using the dowel push it most of the way back to the chamber... You could cut the push rod to just the right length such that the paper stops maybe 1/4" before the transfer port. A single folded corner on tissue paper would likely not stop the salt from spreading on leaving the muzzle. Might take a bit of trial and error to get the fold just right. Hm, think I'm gonna have to try this with my old Webley Junior, a smoothbore .177" pistol. We've been having worse than usual wasp problems this summer...

    Or maybe a cleaning pellet as a wad salt on top then a cotton or somthing as a overshot? you could pick the cleaning pellets up and use them again....maybe.

    I remember trying something like this with a crossman 760, but i used an upside down wadcutter, and actual 6 shot....It didnt punch a hole in folder paper at 6" or so and i gave up on it...well the pellet went thru

    I had a chance to exercise the 1377 after work today after a long layoff. I was using domed-head Crosman 10.5 gr Super Magnums, shooting at about 15 yards. At six pumps, the group were running about 1 1/4 inches, without any stringing. Two more pumps raised the point of impact about half inch, but didn't change the groups much. Ten pumps dropped the group size to 5/8 of an inch, just under 2 inches above POA.

    Tomorrow I'll try the 7.4 gr "Destroyer" pointed wadcutters, also from Crosman. I guess these Crosman pellets like a little oomph to upset the skirts.

    Compared to springers and pcps, not to mention real firearms, the 1377s are certainly a cheap and fun date.

    Has anybody tried the .177 that uses a 209 primer to propel it?

    A year and a half after buying my first 1377 it continues to amaze me with it's power and accuracy at such a low price. Today my local range was closed so I decided to pull out the 1377 and use my 60ft home range instead. Open sights at 60 ft with 5 pumps I was hitting exactly where I pointed it. It was a fun cheap range day at home.

    I pretty much retired my 1377 for a 1322, partly because I fumble less with the larger pellets. I use it mostly for pests and the variable power comes in handy.

    Back during the ammo shortage, my 1377 contributed to trigger time while conserving .22 and cf ammo.
