Very good job indeed!

If all else fails you could set the hammer off to the right side and make some sort of swivel arm that pushes the valve when struck by the hammer.It could swivel out of the way for filling.


It would suit the muzzle loader theme... :D

You'll find that cocking that hammer before the shot is very satisfying :wink:

I am very impressed by the stock work, its as good as a comercial one...

Would you mind to tell me what techniques/tools you have used to achieve that?
Do you have any links?

I need to make one for my 6mm airsoft pcp.

For now, its very good. Keep going!

Tools Used:

Image

Black- Rubber Mallet (for chiseling)
Green- Large and small chisels
Orange- Draw knife
Red - wood rasp

Honestly, I dont know what I would have done without any of these tools. All of them are indispensable. That and a band-saw.

if you have a router at your disposal, it would make a very suitable replacement for the hammer and chisels.

How have you made the inside of the stock to be flat and straight?

When the hammer is cocked, there (should) be enough room to fit my adapter and the Quick Disconnect. If not... well.... Ill make it work.


Thats what I thought you might say. I think you would either need to make an airhose adapter for your pump or else the hammer would need to cock back at least an inch and a helf maybe more. If you can get an adapter that includes a foot or two of hose though, it should work.

I believe he means the chiseled out section of the stock where the gun rests.

Ah. In that case, I drew some lines, and got chiselen'. If you want the proper technique, I can make a how-to, its far too much to explain without pictures.

If your talking about the area where the hammer will go, I drilled that out before I cut the blank with the bandsaw. I simply took a forstener bit and drilled out most of it, then chiseled it square. [/quote]

One question...What kind of wood is that? Let me hazard the guess of.....poplar? Oh yeah, and I TOTALLY agree with BTB about the satisfaction of cocking before firing! I mean, It adds a level of realism that is absolutely awesome!!!!!!! Also, it acts as a natural safety, in that it can't fire without you cocking it.

Maple. I had a piece of curly maple but I'm saving that for a guitar.

Can you please make a how to, stocks are just so damn important to you fellow spudders i think we would be very greatful.

By the way, how do you suggest cutting out the drawn on stock from your wood if we lack a band saw?

Good job, and good luck finishing this of!

you COULD cleverly use a handsaw, but It would take hours. Find someone with a bandsaw.

I'd just use a jigsaw, they are cheap and work pretty well.

I drilled holes along the lines I wanted to cut out because the jigsaw I have could not cut the harwood very well...It warped the blade every try.

So I ended up with an extremely uneven " cut" ..
I then used a woodplane to smooth it out.Took very little time.

I bent a saw temporarily by holding it under pressure to cut out the shape of the cheek rest on the side of the stock.

Got any updates yet?
