I was asked by my friend Bob to build him a pellet gun that he and his Grandson could shoot together with the intent of passing the gun on to his Grandson for the next generation to enjoy. Building a custom gun for two people is more difficult than you would think, especially since Bob is left handed and his Grandson is right handed. What we settled on was a .22 cal pistol based on a Crosman Custom Shop 2400. Bob wanted a Dot sight for use when the gun was configured as a pistol, and a scope for use when configured as a carbine.
The furniture was made from one of those wierd pieces of Maple that has those funny marks in it.
I had no choice but to make the grips ambidextrous so both Bob and his Grandson would be comfortable. Here is the pistol configuration with a multi reticle dot sight.
And to accomodate both shooters in carbine mode, I bent separate wires of appropriate length for the shoulder stock. In the next two photos you can see the different lengths of wire used.
For more precise long distance shooting I added a Simmons 3-9x32 Scope with a BKL 253 mount. The BKL mount allows simple adjustment for eye relief between the two shooters and still keeps the mount forward of the loading port.
I've been so focused on making rifle stocks for a while that I forgot how much fun it is to customize these wonderful guns.
Success is not an entitlement.
