    Well, while I wait to get the right size wing nuts for the drill press vice, I had some luck elsewhere. I won another eBay auction for a Crosman 73 Saddle Pal. With only a couple scratches, it looks to be in VGC for the $79 I paid for it. Here it is after a Rem-Oil rub down next to my 760 Powermaster variant one for size;

    Well, I got my 8\” bench top drill press, 4\” DP vice too. But I need some bolts and wing nuts to hold the vice in place. Then I can finish up the 95 stock to 1000x conversion. Been sick with the flu for two weeks now. Tryin\’ o get over it and back on it.

    Okay, I found the video. She also does a lil bit of Howlin’ Wolf’s, ” Smokestack Lighnin'”. Dad and I know all about that from the Ford foundry in Cleveland.

    I have to ask…what is the name of that blues song played with the video on the opening page? That\’s classic delta blues, what with playin\’ slide on a Dobro. And the Devil (AKA Pappa Laba in hoodoo) on his heals after making a shady deal on a lost crossroads someplace. They still say that about Robert Johnson. I\’d love to hear the rest of the song…

    And now part 3 of the Hatsan 95 stock to 1000x conversion! Just about done fitting…

    • Thanks. I always try to be accurate, but uncluttered about my how-to videos. Doing it yourself isn’t hard, but some basic wood & metal working skills go a long way here. I happen to be pre-disposed to both. Besides my dad, grandpa, industrial arts in junior high…

    Well, after some pain pills and a steroid pack, I’m a little stiff but feeling better. Got started on part 3 of the 95 stock to 1000x action. I think I finally got the action seated well in the stock? Just have to finish drilling and countersinking angled bolt holes and such to finish mounting everything to the stock. Went to #2 newlywed son’s…[Read more]

    Well, I’m still trying to get over a fractured pelvic from a fall a few weeks ago. Tried to swipe the sleet off the running board of the truck to get in without slipping. and my left hip popped hard when I straightened up. Now the pain is right back where it started. I have the new special tools in to finish the Hatsan 95 stock to 1000x action,…[Read more]

Model 70, 1st year, 1974, the 9,857th one built. 761XL Powermaster, built March 1976. And the 760 Powermaster, variant 4, built January 1977. Among the last to still…[Read more]

    Well, the 761XL got sent out Pony Express this morning. I\’ll have it sometime Thursday. Then I\’ll put the butt stock back on and do an initial cleanup/inspection for some before pics. AA pellets come in tomorrow. Sure wish the Caldwell Chrono\’s would cooperate!…

    Fortune does favor the foolish sometimes. The guys on one of the Facebook airgun groups were having trouble finding the AA diabolo .22 pellets. So I took up the quest, going down through my list of dealer links I typically save. Finally found them in .177 & .22 @ https://www.trenieroutdoors.com/ $19.19 out the door. Then on GTA, in one…[Read more]

    Figured it was about time to get things movin’? I ordered a couple things I needed to start practicin’ with my Dem-Bart checkering kit from Brownell’s. I also ordered a seal kit for the model 70 from Baker Air Guns. I pretty much have everything else needed. I also got out the Archer XP-Tuned gas valve I bought for the Crosman 160 Pellgun and…[Read more]
