WALZ/MAR Grease gun build for Rover (Completed)(Round 2 Completed Again)
 
Mar sent me a pirate stock, a pmi body and a crossman
trigger group and told me make it "right for my partner".

Here's what I have done to her

Added a new muzzle end to her
cut a quick strip notch
Modified the crossman trigger group and made a RVA
Replaced the top tube with one somewhat longer
and made it springfed
Made a springloaded thadaptor for faster reloading
Made a removable grease shroud for the top tube
Added a front site and a rear site
Poweredcoated all in black texture
Made a brass bolt end cover, brass pump arm and brass
cover plate for end where cutout is exposed when using crossman trigger groups,
Polished all brass accents
Added a mega beefy wood grease handle for a secure grab.

Still need to modify the valve and test.
Almost there with this one...

Very cool, Wally. I love the top-slotted springfeed/Thadapter - very clever, as it lets you see how many rounds you still have at a glance.

Very nicely put together

I didn't know you could powder coat soldered tubes <?>

My guess would be solder then coat.

You have to braze it really. It's kinda like soldering but higher temp, so the filler melts at a temp higher than the powder coat cures at.

:Focus:

SMEXY! Wish I had dolla' bills to get my own!

On the body of this one I cured at 350* for double the standard time.
The add-ons I cured at the standard 400* for 15 minutes after flow out.
Talked to a few shops and this is how they do it.
Works out well, seems just as tough.

Wow.. That's nice looking.

WALZ 06-25-2012 04:54 PM

Thanks, and thanks to you I was able to post it up.
I had troubles and you jumped right in and took them
away.

Would you ever think about selling pre-modified crossman trigger groups for others to tinker with putting their brass in stocks?

And as any of your work is, stunning, just stunning.

I like how you made the shroud removable. I would imagine that will help with cleaning a lot.
