This will be for a QB78 action with a HPA bottle and Air Venturi .177 cal repeater kit installed. The wood is black walnut.

Tell me what you think, good, bad or ugly!

No progress as of late. Holiday weekend is over and back to work! I did just get a new scope in the mail and now waiting on medium rings to mount it to this rifle. I don't seem to have the "gift" as some do at getting these rifles to shoot like a $1000 gun but I stumbled on to that with this one. I ended up cutting about 2.25" off the end of the barrel and recrowning it. Now it shoots right on the money! I am happy.

I am going to make a slight design change to the grip. For some reason I seem to make the grip too short. I did this on the first on too. Anyway, I will add a grip cap to it to add length. Nothing major but just thought that I would throw that out there for anyone interested....

I had a late night last night! ha ha

All day long I wanted to get out to the shop for some sawdust therapy. Finally after everyone was sealed up tight in their beds, I headed out for an extended therapy session.

I feel that I made a lot of progress in that time and I am really liking this stock for this action.

Tell me what you think....

Brett, That's A Beautiful Stock!

Thanks for sharing with us. You obviously have outstanding woodworking skills!

It's a shame that we can't get a more attractive stock from the factory, but I'll talk to the owner again about this at the SHOT Show in January.

I appreciate the kind words. I really do enjoy making stocks. It would be nice to have more time to do it.

Here is a picture of me holding the rifle to give a perspective of its size, another of the view from the bottom and last is a target that I shot last night to show that it is shooting well for me.

3 shots at the large 3" center target to see where it was shooting. I had sighted for 19 yards the other day and wasn't sure where it would hit at 33. One pellet went high and left, two in the same hole in the black center.

From there I went to the top right target and shot the remaining 7 pellets in the mag into it. Next was down the right for 5 shots each.

Then I went to the top left and shot 5 in each down the left side. The last five pellets I aimed at the sighter pellet that went high and left at the center target where I started to check zero.

DONE! FINISHED! COMPLETE!

December 21 2016, 1:37 PM 

Well, I am happy to report that this project is complete! Sure, there will be more tweaking and tuning and twisting and turning but hopefully mostly shooting now. I have some Watco Danish Oil (cherry) on the stock and I may still fill the grain with some sort of finish but mostly it's ready to roll. Here are some pics to feast your airgunning eyes on! It feels great to shoulder and balances perfectly.

Tell me what you think.
