I guess I like 'em black and tan. And short too.


Top one is my newly redone (again) Benjamin 392
Bottom one is my Gamo Shadow carbine
In the middle is my Crosman Guide Gun

we need the shock and awe for the 15th.. Looks great , all threee. I have 2 springers left , thats it.. cant get rid of em. One was a gift from chris pabon , its actually a really nice b-3 in 22 ,so its a keeper.. the other is a b-3 ak47 ive had since i was 18. So being my oldest gun , with custom work from back in the 90s , I cant get rid of it , too much sentimental value. Im all for pumpers, co2 , single strokers nowadays.A pcp maybe when i have the funds , but im finding a pumper can ge just as accurate with the right work.

I have a few springers. I joke about how awkward they are, but they are my guns of summer when it's too hot and humid to do a lot of pumping! LOL.
The Gamo has been soft-tuned and shoots super smooth in the mid 600's, R7 territory, and just right for backyard shooting. It's the only springer I have that I can hit the target on the first shot, like a pumper.

i got sick of springers, without spending 500, they cant even keep up with a c02 rifle or a pumper.at 500 you can get a fwb300 or an r7 nicely appointed and get some good groups, but for 500 u can get alot of guns.How did you get that paint to look so smooth and balanced?

I have about $80 in the Gamo, plus the scope. Lowering the speed of the Gamo made all the difference. I was ready to chuck it then decided I'd make a project out of it. I actually enjoy shooting it now. No need for an R7 now! LOL!

The paint on all three is Rust-Oleum spray. I forget the color. I used Krylon Fusion as a primer on the Gamo stock. I used Rust-Oleum texture on the wood as a base coat. Makes them look like synthetic.

Not too crazy about it as final top coat, but as a base coat it's great. Also helps hide minor imperfections in the woodwork.

Here's the top coat...

I wanted to paint my bike rims with it back in the day... If I ever get a used wooden stock that's beat to hell, I'd use the stuff on it... I just like the look of wooden grain too much to cover it...
