CO2 cylinders
I've found it's sometimes hard to fit a cylinder in the Drozd. It seems to be to long or the locking lever doesn't drop enough. Has any one else had this problem?

Re: CO2 cylinders
I had the same problem with mine and it is really easy to fix. The manual actually tells you how to do this (page 11,"Problems", end of section 1). You will need to remove the pin which keeps the plunger from rotating (the plunger is the square part that pushes the powerlet up against the valve. It is also threaded). If you look at Diagram B in page 15, it shows you exactly were this pin is. I used a 3" nail with the point cut off and a hammer to punch the pin out. After removing the pin, get a bunch of powerlets and start loading them one by one into the magazine. Make sure the lever is in the fully open position when you do this. When you find one that does not go in, rotate the plunger clockwise until the powerlet goes in and comes out easily. Do this with all your powerlets (the more you have the better) and you will quickly find out which powerlet is the longest. If you adjust the plunger so that your longest powerlet goes in and out easily, you will have solved the problem. Tap the pin back in and you are done.

I actualy measured the length of about 100 Crosman powerlets when I did mine. The longest one was 2.280" and the shortest about 2.220". I adjusted the plunger to accept the long one, then I put the short one in and closed the lever. It did not leak.

I purchased mine a couple of weeks ago and have already shot up about 120 powerlets thru it without any powerlet fit problems or leaks........Hope you have fun with yours as these things are a blast to shoot!!!!

If you don't have a manual, you can find it here http://www.eaacorp.com/manuals/Drozd.pdf

Re: CO2 cylinders
I measured mine and got the same spread. I backed out the pin, adjusted the lifting block and it worked fine
Thanks for the help
