Hey there pumpmaster, looks like we'll be shooting similar rigs....
I'll be adding the 8-32X56 30mm tube Leapers W/2 piece mounts to this shooter... No pump, so CO2 for now...


Hey Parker,

I wanted to tell you that your gun looks really nice (I assume the gun pictured is yours).

Tell me a little about your gun. What it started out as. Who made the stock. How you fit that bottle, etc.

Nice work!

Hey there CJN, this shooter started off as a QB79...
The nice thing about the QB79 is that they're bulk ready....
The bottle pictured on the gun is a 10-OZ bottle with on/off valve. In order for the bottle to fit the gun without the use of a hose and adapters I had to find bottles that were 2" Dia. or less...
As pictured it has a custom stock that I made, 3-9X40AO Rex scope, .22CAL barrel, somewhat adjustable but pad, trigger tuned and bi-pod....
Single shot bolt action running on CO2...The gun was purchased from sniper, the bottles can be purchased from ....If things workout, there will be a .177CAL barrel for this shooter in time for summer...
Here's another source for bottles...

20-5 shot groups with the same QB79 in .22CAL with the newly acquired barrel for a total of 100 shots.... :P :twisted: :lol:
Crosman Premier Die #2 for pellets and shooting 12 yards from bench rest bi-pod, Optics used was the REX 3-9X40AO ....LOL
I'm looking forward to bringing this combo to the range for some longer shots to see if it hold true...

    Shoot Safely, Shoot Often & Share Your Sport!...

I also have a QB79 .177 that i was thinking about trying in the Hunter FT... I just figure I would be better off using it over my .22 QB78Deluxe.. First thing i have to do is get some time to test it out and see how it shoots, haven't had a chance yet..
