Name that gun....

Just picked this up and I have no idea what it is. The stock says Crossman airguns but I have a feeling the stock is just a generic stock made for most 45 frames. The whole lower half moves on the pump to allow for the upper tube to line up to feed the next ball, but the gentleman I picked it up from is running it with a 50 round hopper. Help me identify this marker.

Looks more like a non-comp with a custom cutaway and DF installed?

Either way, those old Nightmares were probobly the best looking pumps ever made.

Yep, its a Nightmare LB with a homemade DF & cutout on the bucket changer. The lb comp models were RF and had a dropout changer.

To correctly state.... The LB comps were drop in changers. The cut was in the top of the 12 gram tube. Also... this one looks like it has a very nice Right Feed adapter. Some of the LB Comps I've seen (and the one I had) had a sleeve (pretty much a pipe T fitting) that slid down the top tube and fed from the Right through a hole in the top tube. Whomever did this knew what they were doing. Also... all LB Comps could be converted back to stock class feed. Most just had a 10 rd tube shoved in the top tube to act as a ball stop and it was easy to pull the front cap and push the tube out if desired.

Don't quote me on it, but there is a very good possibility that this was modified by a shop like Gramps and Grizzly or someone similar.

Correct, for lack of a better word, they were drop in changers. I spot a set screw hole on the right side of the feed tube... perhaps to mount the sleeve you mentioned?
This is an LB though, thoughts?

That is the set screw that holds the pierce pin/gas transfer assembly in place. There is another on the other side.. it's just harder to see in the other picture.. but it's there. It's still an LB that was modified later.

Okay, that would make sense.
