For those that care, I've gotten the butt stock glued up and have begun the work of chipping away all the wood that doesn't look like a gun stock. Also have the first parts of the forend glued up. I cut out the pieces that will become the forend and then cut out the middle piece to fit around the pump lever. Then one side is glued on. After that the piece is held up to the pump arm and the location for the mounting pin holes are marked and the holes drilled. Then it will be easy to just drill through the first side to locate the holes on the second.
Here's the rifle as of last night...
I'm thinking I will have to rework the trigger as it's looking a bit long now that the stock is closer to final shape. Still gotta round over the comb and decide what, if any, buttplate will be used. Kinda going for a retro vintage airgun look (using an older 1377 cocking knob too) so I may not use a butt plate/pad.

They made the 1389 and 2289...

discontinued for lack of sales IIRC.
Or perhaps to increase the bottom line? Think about how much extra you spend buying the pistol and then buying parts to convert it. How much extra are you being charged for "loose" parts than that same part when it's factory installed?
They are a business after all...not in it for fun. As I heard it, they didn't start the custom shop until after market parts producers showed them that there was a lucrative market in modding these things.
