Response to I think the Giffard co2 rifle was one of the prettiest there was
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.
