I have put off replying to this post but could not resist.... I have made a few stocks.... I personally don't find the Disco attractive.... I also am not a fan of the English and European influence on stock styling that is popular with many airguns... I really liked the style of the Benjamin Disco stock in the add and was suprised to see a stock like this offered by the factory... The stock seems to have a stiff pricetag cosidering the cost of the complete rifle BUT $200.00 is not alot to pay for a 'custom' or limited edition stock of this type.... Greg.
The production stocks that come with Discos and Mrods are indeed ugly as are all Crosman airgun stocks. Why must they look so shitty as if made by some hacker. I'm in the process of re-shaping my Mrod stock. I've removed about 1/2 pound of wood and it's beginning to look rather attractive. By merely re-shaping the forend of the Disco would be a huge improvement. There's no reason why Crosman can't re-design these stocks and change the program on their shaping machines to produce a more pleasing and classic look. I realize that production costs are critical, but this shouldn't cost anything to do, except re-tool. I'm sure sales would be enhanced as a result. The Discos and Mrods are really good rifles and deserve better.
