well that is pretty sweet, I must say. I love the sawed off look, and the suppressor is great.
Double thumbs up!

edit:
man, it is just so sick! I can't help but think of this, every time I see it.

Looks nice to me. Did you ever mention what calibre it was?

It's not the time to mention that I can get 1/4" groups at 60' from my Air Arms then. :tongue5:

Personally, I wouldn't exactly be happy with 2" groups at 30' from an air rifle as they're not exactly powerful, and because I have only limited storage space, I want everything in my collection to give something - be that precision, raw oomph or a certain novelty (like the coilguns, which currently fall short on both of the other categories - although if I ever get enough cash together, I hope to build a ~20J coil carbine).

However, that's not saying that I don't like it - but that I couldn't justify owning it to myself.

its .177 cal, I was just out shooting and I think that 2"@30' was off. I was pulling 1" groupings at that range, still not amazing but suitable for its <i>purposes</i>

Thanks.
I regret chopping the stock off for that exact reason, It would have been a whole lot sweeter with a stock.
Deep down I wish I was Anton Chigurh:(...sigh....

ok, that is just too much! That pistol grip fits it so well, it looks like it was made that way.

Out of curiosity, how long is the barrel? Is it technically a sawn off? ie: is it shorter than 18"?

Really sweet job.

Most airguns, even stock, don't have barrels much longer than 18" - about 20" is common for a PCP (Springers are generally shorter, usually a max of about 12".)
This is mostly through no need for any more, and the fact that customers don't want rifles that are impractically long. (The FX Verminator is the shortest barrel I can currently think of, at just eight and a quarter inches.)

For those reasons, and guessing from the pictures (not helped by the fact it's not entirely clear where the breech is...), I'll hazard an assumption this IS sub 18", but that's just me rambling.

On a closing note, I will echo your sentiment that the new pistol grip looks great.

It must be my "unique"taste but I liked it better the first attempt.
No, that;s an understatement.
It was perfect.

Sorry Frank, don;t mean to put you down. :lol:
Just a matter of taste ( you know me, right?)
I just like actual sawed-offs as opposed to pistol grip style riot guns.

Now on to the compliments.The grip seems very skillfully done.
indeed it looks ( much to my regret :D) like it came this way.Love the color :D

...But you can get it down to three and a half if you have a hammer and don't want to use them again. :tongue3:

Or 1.7 seconds if you leave it parked in Brixton, you'll even find it mounded on a brick ;)
