Strip and re-finish the stocks for a 1970's Peak B4-2, a stock for an Industry Brand Model 62(like a B2 sans barrel latch) and a stock for a Crosman Storm for a Crosman G1 Extreme a friend gave me. Don't care for plastic stocks.

Nothing fancy. Just strip, sand and apply light oak poly mix.

I now have three peak B4-2 underlevers (kinda like a B3, different trigger). One was the first gun I rebuilt years ago, one I got a few years later and I just got a third one a few weeks ago. Two were refinished and rebuilt way back. I just rebuilt the third. Today I'll refinish the stock of the third. Yesterday I replace the 33 coil spring in them with B3 37 coil springs and new plastic piston seals. The older one I kept the leather seal for nostalgia sake.

Today I decided to play with the idea of removing the back strap hump ( as well as the bump at the bottom ) from a Crosman 13xx grip frame to give it more of the proper angle which our savior John Moses Browning intended.



I need to pick up another tube of steel stick tomorrow and deal with a few low spots, but I think it will work fairly well.


Not only was I intending to improve the grip angle, but I also want to greatly simplify the process of fitting a set of wood grips.

I finally cleared out an area in the back lot and got myself a 18m range. It will extend as the trees grow. Its semi private, cannot be seen by anyone driving by. About 90 yards from my neighbours houses.  Nearly surrounded 360 by trees. In the shade.

But I need to mark the ranges, build a bench and don't really need one. But build a little back stop. As there might be some rocks in the small berm I set up against.

This should please my neighbors and allow us all to get along, while continuing to be safe.

Still having issues with the Daystate MK3 valve leaking, so figured I can't mess things up to much more, and tossed the valve in my lathe.  Cleaned up the o-ring seat area and polished a few areas just to see what would happen.  Assembled the air tube and aired up the assembly to 2K psi and things held for 24 hours.  Upped the pressure to 3.5k and left for 9 hours..... again still holding air. 

So I may have got the rifle working and ready to test fire tonight!

Here is pictures of the new range lane... I'm standing at the firing point. Got some old pallets that I may take the wood for a backstop. Might need to make a shaded bunker, as can tell there is alot of glare.

Revised my order for small parts from Hatsan.  After I saw the invoice I decided That I could get by with less screws and washers!  Putting together an order for The O-ring Store also.

That 10/22 scope rail trick with the 1400 is great.  I love my 1400’s but the iron sights are mostly decorative!

What airgun related did I do today?
Well aside from doing some more work towards the 2240 stuby build, I kind of had my bubble burst with this project.

I was all excited about this build and how I was kind of creating something unique with the reshaped grip frame and rear cocking hammer that nobody else had thought of before ( somewhat,  the stubby has been done alot )

Well as it turns out that I am actually 67 years too late, somehow I completely forgot completely about the Crosman model 150 and 157  :o

That's right, this whole time I was inadvertently thinking up and recreating the model 150 which was introduced in 1954  :-[


Actually I'm pretty happy to know that I seem to think they way Crosman did back in their heyday , and the gun will be even more cool because it will essentially be a model 157 but a bit more modular.

I was cleaning up dropped apples, and decided to work on the range a bit more..

Made a temporary backstop, till I can get some metal T posts to keep the trunks from rolling down the bank. Doubt the broken broom handles will last. Then I'll throw down more brush. To hide it all. Will look like another brush pile I have in the back yard.

And here is the stubby I made with a Sheridan for comparison.

I believe the only catch... Pardon the pun. Is the sear. Un modified it, it will prevent you having low power I believe. A member modified a sear for my 2240 grip frame CR150. So I retain Hi/Low and last time I shot it, I only shoot on Low. I got 40 shots, with a avg 389, with a STD Dev of 3.7, would been better, but the 40th shot dropped down to 378 FPS. With 382 being the lowest, till the 40th and Highest was 393.

The early 1st series 150 variant was equipped with a variable power hammer assembly. As you rotated the hammer knob, the pre-load on the hammer spring was adjusted for more or less tension, it was replaced by the multi-click sear. I used a first variant grip frame and then a hammer spring adjuster with a 2240 tube, breech and barrel that one.

I said multi click because There were two step hammers and on some models, a three step hammer allowing for three power levels of shooting.
