Hi folks, I'm from South-Eastern Ontario (PEC). I'm a one-gun-owner, so far, with my first new rifle purchase in the spring of 2014. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to shoot much and only have about 250 pellets through the barrel.

When it comes to true custom mods, my brother owns and operates a machine shop so I have access to all his tools, which include but not limited to; 2 CNC mills, CNC lathe, manual mill, manual lathe, etc. I'm sure this will be an asset to me and perhaps folks here. I've had the privelege of using his shop and talents over the years to help make a variety of custom made accessories for my various hobbies. Oh, he's also the guy that makes these and helps make these. Pretty cool right?!

Here are a couple other things he's made in his spare time...2013 and 2014. If you've seen these, or have one, you probably know who he is by now. ;)

Back on topic, my rifle is a Benjamin Classic .22. I've recently completed a couple small modifications to it, and during my searches on the internet I discovered that there isn't a great deal of detailed information out there with pictures or video for this particular rifle. So, I've taken some photos of what I've done and will post them in the mod section.

I'm looking forward to getting out more in the spring and getting the rifle set up better. I have a few things ordered online to customize the gun and will post pictures of those installations as well. In the meantime, I look forward to seeing more pics and mods from you guys!

Cheers!

Hi - welcome to the CAF!

Just one big bunch of air gun lovers here.

Sounds like you have a sweet set-up with your brother.

You might find yourself hit up with a few request for custom air gun parts.

Enjoy!

:)

Thanks wllm!

Absolutely, I would be only too happy to help guys with their mods. So long as it's not a mass production request, covering the cost of materials would be all I would expect since I would be learning something new as well!

See you around!

Welcome aboard.

There will be a shoot day not far from you in the spring held by the Greater Toronto Airgun Club so hopefully we can meet up then.

And I have already thought of 3 things that need making....hmmmmm 4......
