    Nice shot placement! I sometimes crack the garage door by 6” or so and set up a Sniper position on the garage floor. 

    Can you tell me about your Lever Handle on your Taipan? I like that.

I appreciate it Sir…

    Oh yea…there are many times I’m in sniper position also for clean put downs…

    You asked about the Shorty cocking lever…

    I meet my very good engineering/machinist buddy @ a fun & shoot here in the D/FW area about 2 yrs ago. He was shooting his .25 Impact that day & I asked him if he wanted to shoot my .22 Shorty while I try his Impact. I guess he couldnt believe how quiet & accurate she was so he went out that week to order a .22 Mutant Standard. He owns a 
    25 fx impact, .30 fx bobcat, .22 fx royale & a bunch of other high end air rifles. He told me “yea, the .22 mutant standard is his go to rifle, & he thanked me for letting him shoot my Shorty & suggesting her to him.” I’ve always liked how fx has there “easy to grab” cocking handles so I asked my buddy if he can make me 1 for my Shorty. He told me sure when I have some time. 2 months later, my buddy sent me some text pics of the cocking handle being created from a block of aluminum. I was very blown away of the handle as I put her through her paces but the only thing that bothered me was that she stuck out tad bit too much from the action/stock. I shipped the cocking handle back to my buddy so he can shortened her down about 1″. When I got her back & installed her, I was ecstatic about the fitment and beauty of the creation he made. Now the cocking handle is only 2mm away from the Shorty wood stock. I know my buddy made 1 cocking lever for himself & 1 for me. I’m not sure if he shortened his own handle for his Mutant Standard. The cocking lever is a joy to pull & return to place. She truly is a piece of art. 

    Again many thanks Brian!…

    Wow! That is very nice work. I wish I had the Equipment, Time, and Skill to create something like that. Alas, I don’t, so usually end up buying it if available. 
    Don’t know if I will keep my Veteran Shorty or not. It is all you say it is, but I don’t shoot it much. I always gravitate towards my Cricket Mini. Probably ergonomics win out for me. But either way, would love a handle like that for my guns. I have a .25 Cricket BP, the .22 Mini, and the Veteran. 
    Very nice rig you have there indeed!

I’m also in the same situation as you w/ equipment & time. Skill…its always doable. Every rifle fits some1 in some way. Every1 has there own perferences in rifles. I see it as we are all blessed to have @ least 1 air rifle to shoot w/. 

    I asked my buddy if he’d wanna mass produce these lil levers to sell? He told me if he had a cnc machine he’d probably do it, but for now he will pass on selling them. He took 8 hours to create 1 lever so thats a lot of skill, time, & patience. Thanks for your comments.
