These are some customs I made with spare parts and a 3D printer. The Roebels you saw last year, these two new ones are a broken airsoft I got from Birdman for custom parts and ended fixing (cause that's what we do, right?). The lowest one is my take on a Rossi... there is a 38T in there. I want to note that I do not play airsoft or dress up. However, as it turns out those things are fun to use in basement if you just want to rip a few shots quietly in full auto.

And here is a steel storm I got from a member here and tinkered around with cosmetically.

Could you explain more about how you put a stock & longer barrel on that revolver.

I was thinking of putting something like this on my Colt Python, but was afraid it might not fit:

Would be very interested in a detachable shoulder stock for some of my air pistols. Esp. one for the Colt Peacemakers or Remington 1875.

That was a full on custom involving some machining and other madness. It is a .22 barrel from a 22XX, directly from Crosman that I had to turn down to fit in the frame (very soft steel on those). I bored the factory shroud and machined off the extra bit so that the tube (its conduit) would fit over it. Then that whole thing was JB welded together once I got it aligned, which was a lot harder than I thought it would be.

The stock, fore and aft, are something that I got from Birdman and sliced up. Basically I reshaped the grip part of the stock until I was left with a couple of tabs that fit the frame close enough to the angle I wanted. They are screwed on in various places. The grip panels are 3d printed and are from something like a python. Scope rail is also a print.

I am looking to do the same thing in full plastic for either a vigilante or a Brodax. There are pros and cons to either. I would totally recommend trying something like this yourself, but don't try it on your favorite airgun the first time.

great cd. especially like that revolver-- now carbine. and to bb1shooter just be creative and try different things. like cd. said don,t use one of your better guns. i made a folding stock carbine with my cheap umarex xbg. i hardly used it before. now i shoot it all the time. with a reflex sight on top and the stock support it,s bullseye accurate now.

Thanks Pete, the grip on the carbine is held on with magnets. Guy the idea from you. Waiting on a seal kit for it, they're getting hard to find.

nice. glad i helped. i was even thinking about trying a nerf rifle. some how-- if i had to cut it out to make a bb or pellet pistol fit inside. have you seen some of those guns. they are pretty tough . give it a nice paint job. don,t see why it wouldn,t work. any way keep up the good work. it,s good seeing you back on here and into the guns again. take care .

I've thought along similar lines myself Pete, and that Roebels at the top of the page is something similar. I printed out and and extended a Glock carbine kit and stuffed the side cocker inside it. Took some doing, but it looks interesting and I have rails all over it now. I say go for the Nerf, see what happens. I got into the 3D printing about a year ago, and then moved so I have some space now, and well, it was time to get back into things. I gotta admit, I have been using that airsoft a lot because it is quiet, and some how accurate at 10M. No idea why it is, but I can take the center out of a target at full auto and have a hole the size of a nickel. I always thought those things were stupid to be honest.
