           Airgunsmith Modified 2 Stage Trigger For The Legacy 1000 177 & 22

Legacy Trigger Spring Assembly


     Bronze Breech Bushings for the Legacy 1000


This is the single most improvement that can be made with this rifle each rifle is different and these bronze spacers should be hand fitted and polished, then before sliding the breech and pressure tube together the forks on the pressure tube should be cleaned and polished as well.  After you have completed the installation you will notice a smooth buttery cocking and a substantial increase in accuracy.

This is our new custom manufacture variable weight top-hat for the Legacy 1000 both 22 and 177 cal rifles. We first started with the stock weight of 4 oz and worked all the way down to using no top hat and have come to a satisfying  compromise of weight giving the best results with both heavy and light weight pellets Eliminates Main Spring friction & twisting resulting in higher velocity smoother cocking and more consistent grouping.

Some will say not to use a bearing to improve the cocking and shooting consistency for FEAR of damage, this is totally absurd and in fact has been proven just the opposite, this top hat has been in use for over 4 years and it just keeps getting better.....

Nylon guide machined to fit main spring snugly and to be in contact with top hat when fully cocked. With this set up you can increase spring coils from 27 to 32 as well as increase the wire diameter.

The compression chamber on the Legacy 1000 is one of the finest we have seen. We have found honing is not necessary and can only damage and reduce the guns performance. The piston and seal are well aligned and of good quality, we have tried different seal configurations with minimal effects (stock seal is optimal)


 Pivot Lock-Pin for the Legacy 1000 22 or 177

I've been asked over and over, How Do I keep the pivot pin from coming loose on the Benjamin  Legacy 1000?

This is the way we fix the Legacy 1000 when they come to us for adjustment with a loose barrel. First drill a hole from the slot to the inside shoulder at an angle. if you drill straight down, the set screw is too close to the edge and will tend to expand the metal on the breech. When this pivot pin is installed with the bronze bushings and the two stage trigger the Legacy 1000 becomes as accurate as any side or under-lever  spring powered pellet gun.
  This example shows drilling straight from the top of the screw cap. Note how the slot on the screw head is gouged up showing way too much torque, the pivot pin should be snug and if using the bronze bushings a bit less, tighten to a point where there is no side to side movement a penny  works good for this.  

Been hearing a lot about the scope mount on the Legacy 1000 here is the fix


Find yourself a Weaver TO-10 Top Mount base.
Drill the base just in front of the rear slot so the head of your screw hangs over the slot and counter sink this will hold your scope stop. File down the rear tube cover so the base will slide over the cover slide a shear pin in the rear slot slide the base on the tube tighten all screws mount scope with this base you will be able to use the weaver Tip-off rings weaver top mount or the standard scope ring from Wal-Mart
