This was given to me by Mark Hopton a very good friend of mine and Ethan's

 

along with a few others but iv not started any of them yet .

 

got the asi back together to day and she fires sweet and smooth and iv not even touched the internals yet .

 

now this was in bits when i got it so i had to sit and sort all the bits out for her like a jigsaw puzzle lol but i got there in the end .

 

Now the plastic stock cheek peace,s are missing but mark gave me an old smk stock so iv cut the cheek peace off the smk stock and im going to half this and start shaping it to fit both sides of the asi stock frame ,

 

dont know if ill pull it off but im going to give it a go any way lads

 

first thing is to cut the cheek peace in two so i have two halfs then i need to cut the pistol grip away from the two halfs and start shaping it to fit the asi frame .

 

once iv done the cheek peace its a total strip and polish then all the blueing has to be stripped back and re,blue,d

 

iv got my work cut out for me with this one

 

but she dose shoot well lol

Jimmy I can’t believe you have got it shooting I couldn’t figure out why it wouldn’t connect when I cocked it , I put it down to a sear spring or something along them lines, as it needs to be together bloody well done mate , and what you are doing with the stock making the missing pieces is clever it’s strange how much you have in-common as I thought about doing it but never did Get round to using someones bandsaw lol well your a clever and gifted man atvb mark ps tell Ethan I’m asking after him and who ate the black rabbit lol

Starting on the meteor next Mark ,,,ill soon get a piston for it lol

 

thats the one im a bit jittery about as all the trigger parts are in the box and i dont know where they go

 

ill need to get a diagram of it iv looked on chambers but its not a break down diagram lol

 

the wood stock iv cut for the asi is off to be cut by my nephew at his work place tomorrow so should have it back tomorrow night .

 

Si brown is coming up to mine on saturday to go shooting i told him about you and the perms you have we will have to arrange a day nights shooting and with blade he is a good lad you will like him just like you Mark if thats ok with you mate .

Ethans in the dog house at the moment so no shooting for him for a while

 

just being a typically teen and being nasty to his mam and dad

 

but he will not be like that to me or his granny as he knows he will get the back of my hand

 

it never did me any harm ,

Nice to see Mac ,my first air rifle was an A.S.I ,Sniper as powerful as a wet fart but it was my first at the tender age of 14 :cray: .Memories of an oldicus farticus ,its great that you get these childhood memories going again and to such a high standard .Doesnt matter about Lbs/ft just they get used again and a lot of them will be ideal to get young uns into our sport and away from their :censored::censored::censored: playstations ,its a great outdoors and doesnt need WIFI atb :thumbs:
