Drozd Mix-N-Match barrel systems



  The Drozd Mix-N-Match barrel system is a building block system that allows the user to make up to four different barrel configurations. It is designed so that you can purchase as little as you want and then add to it later or, if you desire, purchase it all and save money at a less expensive package price.

   Barrel configurations can easily be changed within 5 minutes, WITHOUT tools! The Mix N Match kit allows you to configure your Drozd as a Carbine, Small Machine Gun (SMG), or a Tactical Rifle. The SMG and Carbine kits use a 15-1/4 barrel and the Tactical Rifle kit uses a 23-3/4 barrel. These kits look VERY realistic and you will be amazed at the performance improvement your Drozd will achieve.

I got interested in airguns about 8 years ago when my wife asked me to do something about the Grackles that were raiding our bird feeders and driving away all the song birds. I bought a BS .177 pump rifle to do the task. well, I'm a machine and tool designer and I had all sorts of "Improvements" in my head. I just couldn't leave the gun alone so I took it apart to see if I could make it better. That incident opened a whole can of worms for me. I have a full machine shop including CNC controlled equipment and the sky was the limit. Eight years later, I have over 100 airguns of all kinds from .177 up to .50 caliber. I have made so many modification that I can't remember them all. Others have taken my ideas and been quite successful commercially. I try to stay a couple of years ahead of the pack, but lately they are starting to catch up. So, back to the drawing board.
