Pistol Whipped!

My last project was a stock and pump arm for a pellet gun. The stock was made from sapele. I bought my first Crosman 2240 CO2 pistol when I needed to make an order to complete that project.

The new little pistol is pretty cool looking right out of the box but it needed something. New GRIPS!

What would any woodworker do a situation like this? Head out the the shop and start making sawdust!

Here is what I have ended up with over the last couple of days.

More of the project can be found here.

These are made from sapele and have about 3-4 coats of shellac sanding sealer, some green scoth brite rubbin’, and one coat of wipe-on polyurethane for a finish.

I will add another picture or two when the finish is dry!

Thanks for looking!

These are now updated pictures with the grips mounted to the pistol.

Sapele has a good look about it, especially as pistol grips. Very nice.

Thank you everyone!

I’m with you Don, the pistol feels like a “real” gun now with the wood on it now.

I like it! Need something 4 my 686. You & Don W are so right, wood vs plastic, no contest.

Great job Brett! I really like Sapele, mainly because it’s such a strong wood. My father-in-law hand finished guns stocks for his grandsons as an inheritance. They all looked great too. Gotta love the wood.
