This was for my 7 year old nephew. The stock and gun were cut from a piece of 3/4 maple with a jigsaw, with a 1/8 roundover all around on the router. the barrel is a 1” dowel, attached to a small piece of maple with 3” screw down the middle. then I attached that small piece to the gun with pocket screws on each side, and covered those holes by gluing a piece of 1/4 luan ply over them. I cut a little groove in the en of the barrel, and stuck a little scrap piece in for a sight. I later stained the stock, and painted the gun and barrel black, except the tip which I left red so it was obviously a toy.

It go lots of use the first night, and never ran out of ammo!

No scope? Or is that being saved for a birthday.

A cope is a good idea! Maybe without optics, you could drill out a dowel . . . you’ve got me thinking!
