    I also picked up a couple sets of Weaver Classic 1″ scope mounts for dovetail grooves while shopping at Walmart last week. So I replaced the Gamo see-through high-mounts that were temporary on my Edge 1000x vortex .25 hybrid. I’ve 4-5 pairs of’em I’d love to trade. Anyway, the Centerpoint 3-9x40AO mildot scope is now slammed! You could maybe slide…[Read more]

    In this episode of The Airgun Tinker, I finally wrap up part 4 of the Striker 1000x barreled action to Hatsan 95 stock. It took so long since I\’m retired and didn\’t have a drill press, plug cutters and other parts and bits needed to finish the job. But we\’re almost there! Watch and see for yourself! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWT_6txEcO8&t=1s

    I have some more eBay wins I’d like to show. I just won another Daisy 1894 30-30 saddle gun built Sept/75. Bought the repro hang tag for it too. It’s the Spittin’ Image base model, all black and a very good plastic rendition of French walnut.

    Well, life is good sometimes. Especially with some vintage NOS eBay wins and airgun birthday gifts. Here\’s my latest video on that subject; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NDkWe4yJv2s

    Well, things have gotten busier than a one-legged man at a butt kickin’ contest around the ol’ man cave the last month or so. Won/bought 5 rifles, a 6th on the way & still bidding on a 7th. I’ll show y’all those when I get them. I think you may find numbers 6 & 7 quite interesting. I also stumbled onto a tin of H&N silver points in .25cal from…[Read more]

    Here’s the final auction win of my latest exploits. This one surprised the heck out of me! I couldn’t have done better for such a low price! See what I did in this episode of The Airgun Tinker!

    Here’s an all-new show I came up with. Splinters of my mind’s eye, and new shorts strung together with clip scenes to carry the story. Like some popular movies we’re all familiar with.

    I had a hit-or-miss moment with this episode of The Airgun Tinker. Se what happened with this auction win;

  • Leonard Cogar posted an update in the group Group logo of Airgun FanAirgun Fan 1 month, 3 weeks ago

    Well, I won another eBay auction. Decided I needed to get some western rifles in my collection. And even something besides Crosman. So here it is, a 1965 build I’m sure you’ll find interesting.

    • Well, the collector/seller on eBay said it was a 1965. But the REG. NO., starting with L6xxxxxx says otherwise. According to fellow GTA members that better understand Daisy’s dating/serial number system, informed me the L6 translates as November 1976. That’s still pretty good though.

    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]
