Thought that I'd show off my 1377 that I tricked out recently. No internal valve or piston mods were made but I did replace the breech seal with tubing as others have been doing.

The stock and forend are of my own design and yes, it's a lefty. Crosman steel breech upgrade. 1077, 24" barrel. Lightened and smoothed out the atrocious trigger. Now it breaks clean with no creep at about 1.5lbs. Waiting on a muzzle break to give some weight to the barrel.

I call it "The Stinger" Let me know what you think....

Subtle changes in the styling. Had to look a couple times to see what you were talking about.

The project looks terrific. The stock and pump arm grip really make it work.

Yes. The stock & forend are made of poplar which is a semi-hardwood with and then treated with Rustolium Bed Liner aerosol coating. Really nice, textured finish.
