So I finally got around to finishing all the mods i wanted to do on the 953, I did the piston mod, trigger mod, polished hammer and sear, stippled the stock and then extended it thanks to Dukemeister for posting the idea on the butt stock extension 8) . Gun shoots amazing now nice smooth short trigger pull and the 953 looks cool too. :wink:

The trigger mod idea i got from here:
http://www.pilkguns.com/daisy853tm.shtml

My Piston mod I did:
topic59268.html

My stippling mod:
topic59518.html

Butt stock extension Dukemeister idea:
topic60758.html

And here are some pic's:

Only one screw holds the sides cover in place.

In this pic you can see all the areas before the mod's.

Hammer and sear before polishing and deburring.

After:

Trigger cuts.

Trigger adjustment screw:

Butt plate extended:

Tried these Pellicano pellets that were given to me they looked a little oxidized but shot well:

5 shot grouping at 45 feet semi rested:

that is a lot of work, as for the success of your mods, i think the 5 shot group speaks for itself, good job :supz:


think the 953 has about a 4 pound pull, how is it now ?

You definitely do a nice job on your air gun mods!

So Ace...when do you sleep man?
And a silly question...what are you doing with your rear sight off the 953?
I would buy it if it fits the dove tails on my new 2240 steel breech.

I'll look for the sights there probably in the box the 953 came in, not sure if it will fit your breech but your welcome to try.

Ace, the more I look at mine and now your pictures I actual like the touch of wood even though everything else is synth and black.
Did you remove the raised ridge on the back of the butt piece to get the wood to sit flush? I was going to route the wood but taking the ridge of the plastic seems easier.
If you find the sights let me know and If they work we can do a deal or trade for them.
I may have to get the old soldering iron out and so some stippling next......that is such a nice touch (no pun intended)
