Hello all. My name is jesse and I am from the brampton area. I have been dabbling with air rifles for about a year now. Just recently I attempted my first mod/custom build. Thanks to the wealth of knowledge I found on this forum, it turned out great. So thanks to all. I have now caught the air rifle bug and decided to join the forum. I look forward to learning from and speaking to you all.

Hi, Jesse - welcome to the CAF!

Sounds like you are already very familiar with the place.

Perhaps you would care to share with us the results of your custom build.

Info and pics would be appreciated.

:)
