Hey airgunning brothers!
I have been working on a little project over the past few weeks and it's close enough to done to be able to share it with you all.
Let me start by saying that I wanted something a little "different" than the traditional airgun/gun look meaning, the color brown! Ha ha ha!
This rifle is .22 caliber and started out as a stock QB78 using two 12 gram CO2 cartridges to propel the pellet. I'm not a very good note taker so I can't recall what it shot in stock form but that doesn't matter because it wasn't long after first receiving it, I opened it up and started to get more from it. Not huge power but a moderate increase with simple modifications to increase performance.
I had it in this modified stock state for a while and enjoyed it but I really enjoy spring guns so it didn't see much action especially having to use the CO2 carts all the time. I recently decided to convert it over to HPA with a bottle. After some internet research and questions asked and answered, I started into the project.
Converting to air required some modifications to the action and the stock and after some internet inspiration, this is what came out of the fire. I still have tuning to do to it to get the most out of it but I can go,out and enjoy shooting it and having something unique of my own creating!
It shoots 15.9 gr JSB at 745 fps average for about 19.5 fpe. I'm only getting about 40 shots per fill so I need to work on the efficiency but it's still fun.
