I like shooting airguns. I also like to modify and tune airguns.
This is a Beeman (rebranded Xisico) QB78D in .22 caliber. It uses High pressure compressed air to propel the pellet. The black tank on the front (foreend) is where the compressed air is stored. These rifles are a Chinese copy of an old Crosman 160 model air rifle that is no longer in production. There are many folks who think these are Chinese junk BUT with a little TLC, these rifles can be made to shine in accuracy and performance. Many people have modified these to make some really cool custom airguns that shoot like a dream.
I cleaned this rifle up and it’s turning out to be a very nice performer. I wanted a nice stock to go along with the action so I created this for it. It’s a thumb hole stock made out of a black walnut blank that I purchased from gunstockblanks.com . This stock project took me approximately 3 weeks of occasional evenings and some time on the weekends to complete. The inletting is pretty simple and I used that crazy aggressive Harbor Freight wheel to remove the wood to make the shape. It is finished with Waterlox original formula.
Thanks for looking and all comments or questions are welcomed!
