My WFTF Piston rig.
« on: May 18, 2016, 08:29:48 PM »
After shooting a Diana 54 for the last two years in Hunter and Open piston classes, I decided to re-purpose my old Hunter Piston QB58 for WFTF. It has a UTG/Leapers 6-24x50 scope (the same one I had on my Diana 54). The QB58 is shooting at almost 12fpe and is much easier to cock than my 18fpe D54 (since sold).

First picture - Top rifle is a stock QB58. Below it is my old QB58 with a new Boyd's Blaster stock:


Second picture - Another picture of my Boyd's stocked QB58. Below it is my Boyd's stocked Diana 34:


I have yet to shoot the QB58 with the new stock, but it feels good and looks good. I plan on shooting WFTF Piston at this years AAFTA Nationals.

As long as you can shoot FT while looking good, that's what matters!  ;D

The new laminate stock does look nice and I'm sure it will be quite comfortable.  Now that yoga position of yours, I'm not so sure...;D

The QB58 is one of the few decent sidelevers out there in a medium power range.  Its too bad there aren't more in the 9-12fpe range.

Scott - who did the inletting on the Boyd's stock for the 34?  It looks really nice BTW.

Scott Hull does them himself at his home shop.

see: http://www.gatewaytoairguns.org/GTA/index.php?topic=109365.msg1042251#msg1042251

Yeah, he has a little nicer equipment than I do.  I'm guessing I'd have a hard time replicating his work with my cordless drill and some sandpaper. ;)
