WALZ De Lisle silenced Sheridan Commando (Completed 7-23-13)
 
The start of the De Lisle silenced Sheridan Commando:
( for a member )

Started the base marker and made this stock for the Commando.
Used Maple for the stock (hard as a wedding night -rock).
I still need to inlet the fore grip (when shroud material shows up).
Although I did drop the neck for better sighting the stock
looks pretty close to the real meal deal and when
I get her all together she is going to be one unique bolt
action sheridan marker.
Has a coat of stain on her now but I think I will make it
a bit darker with a touch of red to her..
The base is a bolt action with a 13" .686 brass barrel
with wedgits and a a/c brass detent.
Still waiting for the material for the shroud - most
of the detail work goes on it -

Anyway here are a couple pics of the stock so far....

Looking forward to seeing this one. I wonder how big its going to be at the end.

The stock does feel right on the money - but we shall see when complete.

The Muzzle end of this beast is going to be a biggie. (humungous even)...

Are you doing a spring feed along the barrel or something closer to a real de lisle?

Love the shape of this one. It's really fun to see you come up with new things all the time.

A bit more done but a lot to go...
Alrighty now..
Received the shroud tubing for this but it is way to Big and Heavy so I have a new idea for the finish.
So far I have added to the bottom tube to extend it to the end.
Made a "double" c02 knob for easier removal.
Ported the barrel with two straight rows of ports. I doubled drilled them all to get the countersunk face.
Added a brass a/c style detent and also added wedgits to the barrel.
NOTE: that you cannot see the wedgit marks on exterior of barrel.
Also re-ported the transfer tube with .287 id tube -changed the old style valve to a cartridge type (re-ported also) and made a bolt action bolt with same air ports as above.
Had to rework the grip but I will be restaining the whole stock before I,m done.
It will be powdercoated with a fine textured black when completed also.
I have the new tube for shroud so will have it figured out and on before to long. Still need to make triggerguard, fake clip, and few other who-ha's.
Ignore the dust please..
