I love this stuff!
Not to much to tell as of yet as this will be ongoing till its done.
The one thing for certain though is it will be .25 cal. This one will replace my Rapid 25.
Its .177 now and I look very forward the mods and the end result.
On this project, anyone with experience with BAM B50 airguns is more than welcome to offer up IDEAS. I have some in mind but i am open to any idea out there on what and how this gun should end….
Thanks for staying tuned!

Great coincidence, i have got a BAM XS B51 in .22, coming my way as we speak.
I will change mine into a .257 caliber, for shooting solids.
First off all you should take it apart and remove all the mudlike grease from the inside.
I would swap out the stockvalve as well, they tend to brake quite fast.
Good luck with the project! Keep us posted.January 28, 2015 at 5:54 am #218157knifemakerParticipant

It’s already goneJanuary 28, 2015 at 8:30 pm #218178
Yep Mike, she is gone for ever.
But its ok, we had some good times, GREAT TIMES i MEAN and they will never be forgotten. Its time for a new girl and to make some new memories….January 30, 2015 at 12:22 am #218278thehunterParticipant
can someone please explain what can be done to these guns? I assume they are like the crosman 2240/13xx in the fact that almost every part on them can be exchanged for something better. Not real sure what I would do with one of these.February 12, 2015 at 11:14 pm #219278caboose212Participantquote Thehunter:
How much money do you have? :rofl:
Honestly, anything WITHIN REASON can be done. I’m in the process of converting mine to 7mm. Here’s a thread from the GTA, where the builder converted his BAM 50 to .357…

Sound to me like a beefy 2240. Maybe a new project in my future? :whistle:February 15, 2015 at 5:27 am #219407caboose212Participantquote Thehunter:
May want to double check with http://flyingdragonairrifles.org/ and make sure they’re still available!! Last I saw, they were going pretty quick!February 16, 2015 at 4:49 am #219466dogwoodParticipant
Can’t wait to see what you do with it, was thinking along the same lines 😎
Already up to my ears in projects, but you can never have too many 😯February 19, 2015 at 11:55 pm #219660pakprotectorParticipant
Sweet! 25 as in pellets, .25 auto for slugs, or .257? Looks like a fine project in any case. Enjoy…:D

Hi Ced, any updates on this project yet?May 25, 2015 at 2:30 am #227290
LAM, yes there is slightly. I’ve worked on the stock cause i can’t mess with the tuning of the gun until i can get Doug to start on my barrel installation.
At the butt of the stock that is. I really like what BSA did with their stock. Its one of the sharpest looking shapes around in my opinion. While weight is not a issue with this gun IMO, I realize that removing wood to take the stocks final shape will result in weight loss. So I start off by weighing the stock complete with trigger guard and recoil pad to get a rough idea of the starting weight.
Next up is to start cutting on the stock then shape it and SAND DOWN the entire stocks finish.
