    I drilled the stock to lower the cheek piece and took out the silly spacers on the butt end.

    Nicely done! I love mine, but not brave enough yet to drill the cheek piece holes deeper yet. What size drill bit did you use, and did you do it with a drill press or regular cordless drill?.. Looks like you got a nicely figured piece of walnut too.

    Amoxom…. The walnut superb. It was on the .22 cal and when I HAD to send it back to receive the .25 cal I made a special request for the same stock returned to me on the “right” gun.The drill bit size must be metric. It was in between 1/2″ and 9/16″. I drilled 1/2″ with a foster bit and put the cheek piece in. It got bound by the too tight holes and could not by risen. I had to pry it up with a walnut marring screw driver :(
    I then reamed the deep part of the hole out to fix the problem. I wish I had found my 9/16 bit earlier.  It was a little tight as I checked it, but that would have been better.  Cordless drill motor. Plenty of meat below the holes. 

    The he clamp inside the stock holds the riser shafts, not the ID of the holes-bigger would have been better.

    Watco Danish oil natural is perfect for tool marks. LOL you can not even see anything with the cheek piece all the way down.

    Thanks… I have a 9/16″ wood drill which is flat with a spike in the center. Will may try that after removing the metal clamping piece that holds the cheek piece pillars. Nicely done getting the option to save the stock! You shot it yet? I think they are still quite loud, and the shroud did little for mine. I added my modified JKHAN moderator from RL Airguns $47 and put in 3 chambers separated by nylon washers and curlers/felt. Quiet as heck now.

    I do poured concrete walls and use those paddle bits all the time. It will not work on a hole already drilled, it will waddle out of control. The only reason the foster bit worked is because it was smaller than the original hole.  $1600 Airgun requires a new $10 9/16″ drill bit. Put some tape on the shaft as a depth gauge, because the bit will pull itself into the hole. You should feel when you have reamed the old hole out and start burrowing into fresh meat. I only had to go 1/2 to 3/4 inch deeper into fresh wood.

    The sound is just a resonantly loud “click”. It is way better than my Royale 500.

    The .22 I know is “broken” quiet with this shroud tune.   If the round doesn’t hit the backstop, you do not even know it went off.

    I am really happy with this gun.  After all the switching, Joe B did what I wanted, and I am Happy.

    It’s not a spade bit, but a proper Brad pointed wood drill which won’t walk when drilling.. A spade bit would grab and gouge the heck out of the stock..

    Nice looking gun, welcome to the family.  I’ve got about 2000 rounds through mine and have basicly settled on the JSB MKII, shooting at 800 FPS.  Going to the range if these Santa Anna winds will cooperate, 50, 75, and 100 yards.

    It looks like from the side view that the butt pad fits the stock properly. Does it really fit or is it just the angle. My only gripe on mine is the way the butt pad fits. Mine looks like it was made for a completely different gun, way too small to fit.

    Looks like I am on my way to a 25 Vulcan black synthetic stock owner, After the deal I had with the mutant backfire,
    I like the 25 better than the 22 anyway, Just me now people do  not shoot me, LOL,
    I really like the FX Impact but a five month waiting list is just too long for me,,,,,

    No Michael, only where the tool marks are. Used a tooth pick to dab it on followed by a cleaning patch. 

    I am happy about the color match because I might take some wood off the bottom of the grip. It binds my pinky finger a little.

    Very nice! That is one of the better looking Bull Pups out there. I’m not a BP fan but that is a nice looking gun! I like the flash light too. Enjoy!

    I get a little jealous every time I see the picture of that tactic, don’t get me wrong I love my Vulcan.25 BP but can’t afford a new gun for awhile. I hope to see some long distance shots from you.

    Trapdoor…. Have you let your gun sit overnight with a full 250 bar charge? Mine appears to be leaking slowly 🙁
