Hi folks,

I see so many fantastic projects here and I just had to start throwing some of mine in too!

These are two pellet guns that I modified from pistols to carbine rifles. I made the shoulder stocks and the pump arms from maple with walnut caps. I finished them with oil based poly, satin sheen. These were completed a couple of years ago. The one on the left was the first one I did and the one on the right was the second. These were fun projects and they are really fun to shoot.

Don’t shoot your eye out kid!

Thanks for looking!

You’ve created some great looking stocks. Where did you get the extended barrel? I’ve got two Crossman 1377’s. One that needs new seals and another old one that I have a factory shoulder stock on. I may have to make one to replace it now that I’ve seen yours.

Thanks for the compliments!

Hal- I got the barrels from Crosman. You can call them with part #s and order most anything you need. These were 24” barrels that I cut down to 16”, recrowned them and spun them in a drill and sanded/polished, the blueing off, to give them the shiny barrel. These two guns also have other internal work to boost their efficiancy some. The breeches are not stock either. The silver(aluminum) one is aftermarket from the Crooked Barn and the other is a long steel breech from Crosman.

Airguns, like woodworking, can be additive. It’s fun to just be able to step out in the backyard and and shoot with out the noise and expense that powder burners have. It keeps the skills sharp too.

these are beautiful. I had a couple of crossmans and never thought you can trick them out like this… I like it!

I could use one of those for my 990 Daisy. I’m getting a bit of carpal stuff. Awesome job!

Thank you!

They started out as Crosman 1377, which is a pump pistol. Like this one.

Cool, my buddies both have the same pistol, lots of fun and easy to modify. I’ll have to show them yours.

Excellent designs, I always liked Short guns. There is not lot that you could learn from me!

You won’t believe that I just found a message from you! Only 130 days old, about rite for me, Nothin happens quickly with me. I still have unpacked boxes from my move to this house in1998! As luck would have it all of my personal firearms were lost in a fire while being shipped to Ca. from Ar. in or stolen, as some were missing from the burned out truck. Over the years I never had the chance to really build any thing of consequence. To busy and or slow, not to mention the expense.
