This will be for a QB78 action with a HPA bottle and Air Venturi .177 cal repeater kit installed. The wood is black walnut.

Tell me what you think, good, bad or ugly!

No progress as of late. Holiday weekend is over and back to work! I did just get a new scope in the mail and now waiting on medium rings to mount it to this rifle. I don't seem to have the "gift" as some do at getting these rifles to shoot like a $1000 gun but I stumbled on to that with this one. I ended up cutting about 2.25" off the end of the barrel and recrowning it. Now it shoots right on the money! I am happy.

I am going to make a slight design change to the grip. For some reason I seem to make the grip too short. I did this on the first on too. Anyway, I will add a grip cap to it to add length. Nothing major but just thought that I would throw that out there for anyone interested....

All day long I wanted to get out to the shop for some sawdust therapy. Finally after everyone was sealed up tight in their beds, I headed out for an extended therapy session.

I feel that I made a lot of progress in that time and I am really liking this stock for this action.

Tell me what you think....
