I'm giving a Surge to a younger shooter (with Dads permission) but the synthetic stock is a bit heavy. Since the Surge is a copy of the Airhawk (I think)? would the Surge action drop in to the Airhawk wooden stock? Trigger guard looks different.

Yes, I know, I could have just bought the kid the Ruger for $99.00 at Wally :)

Thanks

Yes, it'll drop right in. The Surge and Airhawk/Blackhawk have the same receiver tube dimensions. However, be aware that the receiver/barrel assy. are quite heavy by themselves, so you may end up with a rifle that feels ''front heavy''. Also, don't forget to put blue LocTite on the stock screws when you put it back together. The trigger guard won't be a problem, both rifles have the same trigger group (T05 clone).

Hope it helps!

Thanks for the info. Funny enough I ordered one a couple hours ago :)....$99.00 plus tax and free shipping.

Your sig describes things for me as well, but the plan was to take the barrel down, re-crown, shorten the wood stock for him too.

Good deal! And since those rifles are Diana 34 clones, there are many readily available parts and ways you can improve them: springs, pistons and seals swap, trigger work, etc. I must add that I love my Surge and Blackhawk, I tuned them, and they're keepers! The young lad will have a good start in airgunning for sure!
Don't know if you know him, but this guy provides parts and service for Umarex products: http://randrairgunrepair.com/home.html . I saw only good comments on him :wink:

Cheers!

Thats Rob!! :)

Last time I ordered from him, he totaled everything up but I did not see shipping, so to make sure I covered it (and then some), added some money....he put 20 bucks in the package and said I paid too much for shipping :)
