Whitewolf put this together for me over the past couple of weeks.The knurled brass brake adds the perfect heft to steady offhand use.As well as great target definition and the blade knurled on top to prevent glare.
The power adjuster is ergonomic,practical and doesn't clutter up the gun or it's handling ability.Has an internal threaded brass screw with the same for a clean looking plug.all removable should you need to access the hammer spring.Added a 10" barrel ,trigger shoe ,walnut thumb rest grips and LPA rear sight.Haven't chronied it yet due to wet weather but is very accurate and I am quite pleased with the results................Harold

Are those grips homemade?

As for the grips .........They were on a 2240 I bought to strip for parts for the build.I chronied it yesterday at between 490-495fps with 14.3gr pellets.I get about 24 full powered shots ..........so that's fine as it's for hunting anyways and I have a unaltered factory 2240 for killing cans....I particularly like the sight picture on the brake as the brass blade shows up real clear between the LPA dots on the rear sight .....Harold
