Not really much to say about this.

It is a black walnut stock made for a QB78 air rifle. I really like my airguns! Ha ha ha.

I had a great time making this one, as I do with them all. It’s gets easier every time I make a new one. This one really feels great and the rifle balances perfectly. Right now it only has some cherry Watco Danish Oil for the finish. I need to fill a couple checks and a small knot then I may fill the grain with more oil then do a furniture wax once it is fully cured.

Thanks for looking a let me know what you think!

Great job on the stock for your QB78 air rifle! The 2nd photo really shows off the beautiful walnut grain.

Nice work . . . Did you rough it out with a duplicator or, is this all your talented handy work? It really is a beauty! Love the choice of walnut and the piece you chose is spectacular . . . The Watco oil is the perfect choice of finish to bring the walnut colors out. well done!

Hey Charles, NO DUPLICATOR! ha ha ha! I used a drill press, router table and chisels to do the inletting for the action. I use a sanding disk on an angle grinder, burrs, files and sandpaper (power sanding and hand) to shape the outside of the stock. It seemed a little intimidating the first time I did it but now it’s getting fairly simple. I just take it one step at a time and next thing I know the action drops in and then the fun part of shaping the outside begins. I am still a little impatient when it comes to the finish but I use these air rifles, they are not safe queens!

Thanks for your kind words!

Thank you Tony! The wood really does have some nice grain and figure. I will have to take some better pictures to show it better when the right light is out. Pictures in the sun seem to show it off best.

- ralbuck


Thank you Ralbuck! Benjamin does make some decent airguns but they are not tops. Many other countries around the world, especially in Europe, have developed and manufactured some VERY nice, quality airguns. Some brands to look at, if you are interested are….

FX Airguns-Sweden
Air Arms-England
Daystate-England
Weihrauch-Germany
Steyr-Austria
Feinwerkbau-Germany
Rapid Air Weapons-USA
Benjamin-USA
Air Force Airguns-USA

There are others out there but these are ones that I can think of at the moment. The world of airguns is pretty large and diverse and all over the world. I never had a clue until I started searching the internet nearly 10 years ago. Most people in the US think of airguns as toys…. They think of the $100 rifle that sits on the shelf at Wal-Mart and that is what they are used to seeing. There is soooo much more out there, you just have to know where to look.
