Nice looking tree house for the grandkids Lloyd!
It could make for great game scouting platform too :-X

What a great fort for you and your grand kids to defend with yall's trusty air rifles.  Nice work!!

Right you are!  It overlooks one corner of our garden, and me and their mom, my oldest daughter, had a stakeout there one evening to try and snag one of raccoons that had "harvested " some of our corn.  Ended up that the traps we set were more successful than we were, LOL.  Oh, and we did end up deterring one of Tater's skinny-tailed "cats". ;)

The Airgun lab is still transitioning the double tube kits over to Stalwart Arms but a new item is available from the Airgun Lab.

It is a tall trigger sear for the Marauder Pistol (P-Rod) trigger group that makes the P-Rod pistol trigger group safe to use on a Gen-1 M-Rod.   A lot of folks like the tactical look, and adding the P-Rod pistol grip to the M-Rod is a good starting point.  With this sear installed in the trigger group, it is a simple bolt-on modification for the M-Rod.  The problem is that the wall thickness of the air tube on the M-Rod rifle is is approximately .030"  thicker than the wall thickness of the pistol.    That means that the sear of the pistol grip does not reach inside the thicker walled tube of the M-Rod to safely and securely latch the M-Rod hammer.  It is true that some people have installed the Pistol grip on the M-Rod without modification and with incident, but personally I see it as an accident waiting to happen.

Here is a picture comparing the two sears.  The new taller sear  is machined from S-7 tool steel and heat treated to Rc53-57 by a certified heat treat facility.  S-7 tool steel is the same alloy steel used to make quality chisels and punches.  The sear is hard and tough and will not crack or break.


This picture compares the height of the sear after it is installed.  You can see how it will reach further inside the air tube to securely latch the M-Rod hammer.


Here is a picture of the pistol grip and a few other items installed on a Gen 1 M-rod to have a tactical look.  Please note that the pistol grip moves the trigger blade approximately 2" farther forward and 1" higher than the standard location.


I will be advertising these in the vendor classifieds shortly for $23 ppd for the S-7 tool steel sear, deburred and prepped for installation, with certified heat treat.  Installation is straightforward and good instructions, including a YouTube video will be available.  If you need the entire P-Rod pistol grip trigger group itself, Crosman sells it for  approximately $40 with the standard short sear.

I have one of these tall sears, and it works perfectly in my BRod conversion.... I highly recommend it....
