That’s a sweet looking shooter right there!!! I love that Vash stock! I may have to build something similar someday!!
I know this thing’s gonna be loud!! I just needed something to take a bite out of the report… I have no wild fantasies about this carbine being a “backyard friendly” hammer. I have my TalonP bullpup @ 40 fpe for that.July 1, 2018 at 4:09 pm #275576
Man, I can’t stop thinking about another Crosman PCP build… I have one of those Russian side-lever breech’s for the Disco, this is what I was thinking of building:
Russian side-lever breech (this will be a regulated .22)
Modified Mrod shroud w/LDC mount end cap
China clone of the AR15 TROY PDW stock
JDS Airman (or would a QB79 block work?) conversion block
Blue Fork Designs trigger (since I’m no longer using it for the .25 slug gun)
Modified Prod fore end
It’ll have to wait, but I think that would make a damn cool little gun!!July 1, 2018 at 4:30 pm #275577
The QB79 block, I think the holes are way to close to the end of the tube for my comfort. Jdsairman work for me. I wanted to do the side lever but to damn cheap to buy the breech lol. I’m trying to use up all my spare parts.July 1, 2018 at 5:38 pm #275578quote miksatx:
That’s what I thought… I’ll order the JDS block sometime in the next few weeks…
Yeah, I felt the same way about the Russian breech, and even cringed a little when I hit that “buy it now” button… But considering the cost of a BNM breech (and it’s not a side lever), plus the fact that the Russian guy was the only game in town for a while (there’s now a Thai guy making them), I pulled the trigger on one.
I’m using up nearly all the Crosman/Benjamin spares I have with this build, the .357 build and the future Disco bottle build I described above. However, it always ends up with me buying more parts :rofl: Oh well… 😐July 1, 2018 at 6:02 pm #275579
This is probably a silly question, but can I upgrade the barrel set screws to 10-32? For some reason, these 8-32 screws seem really small to me… If not, I’ll just add a third 8-32 screw.July 1, 2018 at 7:47 pm #275581quote Caboose212:
On disco type barrel bands? That’s a hard call if you’re already cutting them to fit a .500 barrel. Roy can probably whip ya up ah barrel band.July 1, 2018 at 8:24 pm #275582
I should have been more clear- I meant on the grub screws on the breech that secure the barrel.July 1, 2018 at 8:27 pm #275583quote miksatx:
I might have to have Roy do that- I’ll see how much material is left on the Cothran barrel band, but the barrel is actually larger… around .556″ or some such. The barrel is .50″ for the breech area. *Crossing fingers* I hope I don’t have to buy another barrel band.July 1, 2018 at 10:59 pm #275584
Naw you was plenty clear Tom. Wow what a dumbass I am, I read breech and thought barrel band.July 10, 2018 at 8:24 pm #275645
Cothran Valve and barrel band paid for, should be shipped soon!!! Oh man, I can’t WAIT!!!!
I’m still working on the stock…
I filled in the gauge hole (not using a gauge); Here’s a view on the inlet side… I have the wooden dowel just below the inlet so I wouldn’t have to do any work on the inlet. Yeah, I know it’s lazy- sue me!
Here’s a shot from the outside. I need to rasp/sand it down smooth with the rest of the stock. I’m also filling in all the script and “checkering”. Too easy.
After I get my tube back, I’ll cut down the front a touch, then round the edge, shoot a coat of high-build primer, and make sure it’s all smooth before doing a “final sand”… Then it’s off to the Hydro dipper. Oh man, I can’t wait!!July 11, 2018 at 5:07 pm #275655
Great job of fill job now get hot with that rasp. Need to do that on my Airmax varmit. I dropped a reg and plenum so no gauge on it, just s big hole.July 12, 2018 at 2:45 am #275659
All it really takes is a bit of work… The hydro dip really hides imperfections!!July 13, 2018 at 10:51 pm #275679
Powerhouse valve is IN!!! The barrel band won’t have enough material, so I’ll have to figure something out. I’ll be emailing Mountain Air very soon!!July 14, 2018 at 8:10 pm #275689
I’ve done the initial fill of the checkering and script on the Gen1 Mrod stock. I’ll probably have to do a 2nd fill. Pics:July 14, 2018 at 11:09 pm #275693
A touch more work. Nothing crazy.
No more nub!!
More of the checkering:
Still a bit of work yet to do. That checkering is weird. It’ll definitely need a 2nd or maybe a 3rd fill. The script should be good to go after the 2nd fill. I’m also going to run a skim coat over the former gauge hole to smooth that area out.
Oh- I pushed a few pellets through the barrel, as Roy said those Baker .25 barrels are spotty with the rifling. Luckily, the rifling marks on the pellets look good to me. I pushed through a few of Kodiak match and JSB’s. So the rifling should fully engage the slugs I intend on using. No pics, I don’t have a camera that can zoom that close. The parts will be in the mail on Monday!
