This one has been simmering off and on on a back burn in my brain since the 1377 build-off the first of the year. Dan's entry sparked a little something in my head...

Airgun funds been tight this year as real life makes it's ugly demands. I've been really wanting to do a 1377 based pump rifle with a real rifle trigger and stock. No half way pistol carbine this time. With no fundage for a Discovery or Marauder trigger pack, Dan's hacked off grip frame gave me an idea.
I hacked up an old 1377 frame as per Dan's design, but then added a trigger blade hung on the rear cover plate screw. Then came the reverse bullpup part - a brass rod connecting the real trigger to the rear rifle trigger. Like a bullpup linkage, only in reverse!
The trigger blade will get its final shaping once I get the stock a little more squared away. The grip frame will also get all the nubs and stuff sanded off so it will slide into the stock better. Thinking I'll use a piece of all-thread instead of the front frame mount screw. A nut will hold down the frame then a knurled brass nut will be used to hold on the stock.
A wood forearm will also be made. The 760 part is just for example and it's painted red in honor of Dan. I hope he enjoys the red now as there probably won't be any red on the finished product! LOL
I plink, therefore I am.
fixes having the trigger soooo far forward using the grip frame
