Thinking of picking up used QB78 but would prefer the HPA route. I've seen the mods to the QB78 tube but was wondering if you can get a QB79 tube with the tank block and retro-fit. Thanks!

But it would be cheaper to get a 79.

You can also just buy the gas block and cut down the standard tube and fit the block to it.

I agree with Andy. And you also would have some woodwork to do on the QB78 stock to cut it down to match the shorter tube.

Casey,

You can fit a 79 action into a 78 stock. It is a fun project and lets you customize to your liking. I did it because I had an extra 78 stock laying around and I don't like seeing the valve of the tank as on a 79 tanker.

Here's a link to some pictures of my project. It's a .22 shooting only 560 fps. I do have a .22 that shoots 740 fps.

That sharp cut makes it look evil. There is one guy on here with a thumbhole stock on his it looks nice too.

I too like the recessed look for the tank a la Theoben Rapid. I actually keep my eye out for a cheap Rapid stock to try just such a project. Fat chance I'm sure but hey, have to keep hope alive
