A while ago I was asked to photo document one of my projects. Some of you like this stuff apparently, lol. Well this time I tried to stop and take pics along its way. A good majority are in its machining order.
So without further a due here it is.

Thx guys.

All the above Daryl :), muzzle break with stripper cone. Shroud tube runs a taper going from 1.25" od to 1.12" od. Shroud is empty. And made for none other (in some peeps opinion) the Biggest Baddest Blackest rifle out there. The AF Texan 45

Having heard of peeps complaining about the Texans accuracy, well couldnt resist upon putting something in there to help out. :idea: Or was it to just throw another wrench into a variable pot :lol: of the AF platform combined with cast rounds :?:

This is what this rifle thinks, seriously Kim, very nice work. Let us know how she groups. Question, are there any actual .45 pellets as maybe the rear skirt will help stabilize and help improve groups. I have never found any .25 slugs that grouped as well as pellet and I think it has to do with the difference between compressed air and powder??

Lol... Thx Randy
This was a special order build for a fellow airgunner. I just apparently worked faster then his mad money stash had time to grow. I dont have the gun to test it upon. So in time itll all come together.. :D it always does upon these kind of builds.

Last I had heard JSB was developing a 45 cal pellet and packaging was a set back. But still no word as to when they will hit the consumer.
As for 25cal rnds there has been Bobs and a few others development into casting molds that are being used with good results.
