Response to Another Great QB78D Cronograph test " Frankengun"
I really like the Crosman 160 stock you've used. You have created a VERY classy air rifle! The chrony results are equally impressive. You built a great rifle - and I am awed by your ability to let it leave your hands when it was finished. Clearly, you need to reward yourself and build one that you can keep!
It's obvious that you know what you're doing when you get to the internal parts of the gun. That's something that I do NOT mess with, since I don't have any experience with it. I plan to try to upgrade my skills a little bit this next winter taking apart and reassembling the major components of a battered, non-shooting QB78 I found at a garage sale this past spring. I would like to get to the point, someday, where I can do simple repairs and upgrades.
For now, however, I'm content with doing "cosmetic" upgrades and taking good care of the stock innards that come with each of my air guns. Be sure to post pictures and information about the modifications and builds you are doing, because they will inspire me!
Most of all, keep having fun: keep smilin' and keep shootin'!
