The Family that shoot's together....
|Tim in NC created this little jewel. Here is the run down:|
The custom parts include:
New trigger from Airgunsmith
Grips from RB Grips
Bolt & barrel from Mountain Air Muzzle break, barrel shroud, and other brass parts were made by Art.
Breech and rear sight are from Crosman Front sight is a TruGlo shotgun sight
|Tim in NC's 2240|
son wanted to have a gun like dadís ďPoke a DotĒ gun (my 1377), so
he picked out these parts. The grips are a special youth size that Rick
made and the aluminum and stainless parts were all made by Art at http://www.arts-shack.com
Ben is five years old, hopefully he will remember his first gun like I remember the first given to me by my father.
We are going to go broke creating all these, but we are sure having fun doing it. :)

|I have heard of pregnant women having cravings...but Jeeeze!!!|
|"This is my first custom airgun. It was originally a standard 2250. When my husband gave it to me, I thought it was the ugliest thing I had ever seen. I didnít know they could be customized at the time. He got the grips from Ralph, the muzzle break was custom from Larry, the breach is from RJ machine and all the other brass pieces were made by Art. Now it is something I like to use and see. When I get a good hit on the soda cans, it shows what a nice airgun it is with some power behind it."|
|Sue in NC's Hex Gun|
is my second custom airgun. Tim posted my first gun. The grips are Ralph
Grips, the muzzle break is by Larry,
and the rest of the brass pieces are made by Art.
I have to say one thing that when you order the custom gun from crosman,
the finish is much better. They sand the seams down and the warning
message is much smaller. The bluing is also darker. What do you think of
As for the
money, I've stopped counting. I'm not planning on retiring. By
the time our baby daughter learns to drive I'll be 56.
Tim in NC new Creations
|It appears that Tim has a terrible addiction. What is this now? Five...six modded guns in 2 weeks?!! Tim...step back...take a deep breath...there are enough guns for all of us.|
two guns are to take care of mice and rats around our barn. They started
out being dull looking guns. But I just could not leave them plain
looking for long. So I started adding custom parts and over time they
ended up looking like this. With all shine on the guns, even if I
donít hit the rats with a pellet, they could go blind just looking at
The 2240 is for the short range near the barn shooting. And the 2250 is my rat sniper rifle. When the weather warms up I can lie out on the deck and watch the barn for movement.
The 2240 has parts from Art, Larry, Rick, Roy, Airgunsmith, and Alan at ABAirgun.
The 2250 has parts from all the people above as well as a long RJ breech .
|Tim in NC and his wife are having a baby. Diapers, formula, rattle...bb gun?|
worry we know she can't use it until at least 5 years old. We just
thought she should have one too since my husband, 5 year old son and I,
all have a custom 2240. She'll be born tomorrow, that's why we're
posting pictures today. This gun started of as collection of spare parts
from the other guns we created.
The parts are:
Benjamin EB Grip Frame from Alan at http://www.abairgun.com
Grips from Rick at http://www.airgrips.com/
Bolt from Roy at http://www.mountainaircustomairguns.com/
Breech & Trigger shoe from http://www.crosman.com/
Brake, Co2 Cap, Power Adjuster and barrel shroud from Art at http://www.arts-shack.com/
Sue and I tried to make a riser version of the 1377's sight/band/clevis out of wood. The only way that part would look good is if we were to build a "Flintstone gun".
|Tim's new 1377|
one has been in the works for months. The plan was to make the 1377 look
like a modern version of a Mountain or Kentucky pistol from the
1800ís. I think I finally have achieved that look. Thanks to all who
made the parts for me.
The grips are made by Rick at Airgrips.
The trigger and safety are from Sid at Airgunsmith.
The long breech is from Robert at RJ Machine.
And a special thanks to my very good friend Art who made many custom one of a kind parts.
|Another Beauty from Tim|
|You know...for being relatively new at this...he does have an eye.|
The CO2 tube was made out of
a sheet of brass. This is my first attempt at making my own part.
The grips are from Rick, the front sight is from Larry, the CO2 cap and power adjuster is from Art. the trigger is from Sid, and the bolt is from Roy.
And a CO2 tube cover made by me.
|And yet...Another One|
I've been working on putting
the pieces together for a few months now and finally finished it tonight.
The tube is a chromed 2260 tube from Roy. I hope to be adding bulk air to this one soon.
This was supposed to be a
pistol, but it got to large to shoot accurately, so at the last minute, I
added the stock from Larry. The grips are
Rick's phat grips that he was selling a few
months ago. The breech and barrel bands were made by Grant.
The break was made by Art.
This one hits real hard. I don't have a chrony yet, but using my informal splat test the pellets pancake at 20 yards hitting a steal electrical box cover. The gun was tuned by Art and the valve was from Roy.
I have Joel to thank too. If had not posted my first poke-a-dot 1377 on his web site, I don't think I would have modified this many guns. My wife thinks this is one of my "over the top" designs. I guess if Marvin the Martian had a pellet gun on those Bugg's Bunny cartoons, it may have looked like this.
How do you guys like it?
still be better with money this year, but.... when
unemployment hits, I'll be eating rats shot with a $500 air gun
