the question of extruded aluminum stock : I envision a thumbhole stock to add some rigidity or some extra volume; I envision that toward the trigger guard it could be flared out like a benchrest stock but at the farther forestock end : mannlicher (sp) or beavertail..
double walled at the trigger compartmnent and for tapping for slings and scopes..
Really.. do you not think that at the right time and with the right marketing... it could take the airgun world by storm ? \
I think the idea of an enclosed tank in the empty stock area utilising the designs used now would also be a great idea, I mean in the butt stock, allowing switching it out etc... sort of a big bore spin off of the crosman co2 guns with the 88g cylinders you pop in.. etc.
thanks for your brain power and idea sharing gentlemen ..lol
