    So does this happen to anyone else?

    When shooting my walnut stock AA Pro Sport, if I have any stubble on my face, it gets caught in the pores of the wood as I take a cheek weld up to the scope and yanks it out by the root. OUCH !

    No issue with the wood but sometimes metal parts can get rude with beard or mustache hairs.  ;)
    Sounds like some additional stock finishing is in order in your case.

    Must be something with the AirArms stocks. It happens to me when I shoot my TX200. I got all geared up to refinish mine but then lost confidence and don’t want to chance ruining my beautiful walnut stock! I got a little teary eyed the other day when my EdGun grabbed hold of my mustache hairs. My wife likes that the guns keep me cleaned up and presentable, otherwise I would not shave at all. Come to think about it, that is the only thing she likes about my “toys.”

    I had a walnut stock that did that. I put a coat of Renaissance wax on it and the problem disappeared. It was an easy change as the finish of the rifle looked the same.

    I also had the same issue with my walnut Pro Sport. Refinished it with Minwax Antique Oil. Gave it a beautiful glow (Not overly glossy) and Really made the walnut pop. Super easy and forgiving to work with,as well…and no more shaving 2x a day!
