2260 with short crosman receiver atop a mini riser made from aluminum tube. Barrel is a 2200 soda straw
tensioned inside a titanium golf club shaft. Three screw mod to the trigger, bulk co2, SSP 250 rear cocking
striker assembly. Factory stock, reshaped, bedliner finish and stick on cheek piece. The idea was a weather
resistant light hunter for rainy days.
I've got a Cothran stainless receiver and gas tube waiting for me to get back to this one.
There are VERY few airgun stocks, custom or factory, that come anywhere close to the style of the classics LD mentions.
Part of that is the high sight line issue I mentioned..all the older guns were iron sighted, and not tall in the metal the way most modern gas guns are. It's very hard to get a good cheek weld on a scoped sheridan, especially if you have a thin face, as an example.
Some of Coccorans stocks work for me, but tend to be a little too rococo, James Linthicum had a few nice, clean, classic designs.
