The pic do make it look easy and quick to do but as you know its very time consuming

 

I don't think mine are up to your standard John there top class and you have fetched out the grain in some of them stocks no end

 

it all ways amazes me why they cover up the grain in some of the rifle stocks

 

when they must no its the nice grain that will sell the rifle in the first place lol

 

That air sporter is nice real nice

 

once again top class work

I have to say what an incredible rifle this is, in this fantastic stock that Jimmy has transformed. The butt-pad makes it just about as near perfection for my fit as I've ever known with any rifle. I nailed 11 rabbits and a woodpigeon with it last night. The scope is an elderly and much loved Simmons Pro-Air 6-18x40 AO and suits this HW77 to a perfect Tee. Only a 30/30 duplex reticle but,zeroed at 35 metres optimum range on 'Gas mark 7, you only need only a little hold under for shorter range kills and a little holdover for anything further. It's the same with HW80 that Jimmy also breathed new magic into its stock.

 

Both rifles have been out and still available after well over 30-odd years and are every bit as potent and accurate as the best of anything made today.

 

It's old-school air gunning as I grew up with; and I love it.

 

Jimmy. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the kindness and brilliance you have bestowed on these treasured rifles.

 

Simon.

Really nice work.

I did something similar with a Webley Eclipse I picked up from a colleague for a song.

It was very tired, but I sorted the rust on the barrel and underlever with oil and an old penny, then oil and 0000 wire wool. Very similar job on the stock, but didn't stain it, wish I had now, rather than just BLO.

Like the cling film tip.

All the best.

Jimmy ask Simon to take you to East Kirby when you next go to visit him...

 

You want to get up close and personal with Jane....
