Wood Composite Grips and Pumper

This is just a quick update on the wood composite grips and pump handles. They can be a bit tricky to print, but they work! I’ve printed, sanded, and finished a few sets now. Check them out!

Unfinished
Finished

They are printed in a Polymer/Wood composite. It is 30% wood and 70% PLA plastic. The ones in the pictures above are stained with 3 coats of Minwax Dark Walnut stain and clear coated with Minwax Helsman Semi-Gloss Spar Urethane.

They are not as fine as solid wood parts of course, but I really like the blend of traditional and new technology. They would also be cheaper than wood, but would allow me to serve the folks who aren’t into black rifles. I would offer them unfinished only, as I don’t have the time to sand and finish these. I’m trying to train my chickens to help, but their lack of ambition… and hands are proving to be difficult obstacles to overcome…

The Diana AR Conversion parts are done (AR lower, Adjustable Stock, and Tri-Rail) and my plan is to release them next week. Please be patient with me.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Crosman 2240 Forearm

Our forearm for the Crosman 2240 is finally here. I worked out the details of the design a while back, but had to wait quite some time for the hardware to come in. It doesn’t require any modification of the stock airgun parts. It mounts securely utilizing the trigger guard and barrel band as attachment points and comes with all the hardware needed for installation. I’ve incorporated a picatinny/weaver rail for mounting accessories. It goes great with our adjustable stock, grip, and suppressors. Check it out in the video below!

I think I’m gonna take a break for a bit after this. Design-a-palooza has been fun, but I need to recover. Give me at least a week. The Diana parts will be next!

Thank you!

AEA HP SS Max .35 Suppressor

I’ve only recently found out about AEA airguns. This is my first big bore so I don’t know how it stacks up against others, but I’m certainly impressed and looking forward to getting some accessories out for it. I’m working on a suppressor for the .35 caliber and a tri-rail/band that clamps onto the reservoir. I started out with a suppressor that is close to the same size as our 1/2-20 UNF suppressor and quickly found out that it needs way more volume than that. What I’ve ended up with is a monster that takes 16 hours to print! Here’s a little video preview. Also, note the tri-rail makes an appearance as well.

More details on the suppressor and tri-rail later.

Thanks for lookin’ y’all!

Beeman QB78 Accessories

I’ve gotten a lot of requests to make a suppressor for the Beeman QB78, 1085, and Chief II. I have a QB78 and noticed it’s very close to the 880 dimensionally so I worked something up and it worked out great. While I was at it I figured I should make an accessory mount as well. The suppressor should work for the QB78, 78S, 79, and 1085, but not the Chief II or other Beemans. The accessory mount will only work with the QB78 with wood stock as far as I can tell.

The suppressor adapter is much like our 880 suppressor and utilizes the same thread cap and suppressor as the 13XX, 1077, etc.

Diana Accessories Update

I had planned to put new product design on the back burner and focus more on the business side of Buck Rail in early 2022, but as soon as I started web-developing, spreadsheeting, and process planning I would get a new idea and then another… business fell by the wayside and I came up with another thingymajig and then another. We’re only 12 days in and I have already accepted defeat. I’m a designer first and a businessman second. Time will tell if that’s bad or good…

The Diana Chaser, Bandit, Airbug, and Stormrider have been a recurring theme in customer emails lately and for good reason. I’ve heard you and hope to deliver. I’ve added a Tri-Rail for the Chaser, Airbug, Bandit, etc. I’ve changed the dimensions slightly to provide a better fit and easier installation. Check those out here: Diana Barrel Band

I’ve bought a Stormrider, Airbug, and Bandit to confirm that it works well on those airguns as well and to see if I can come up with something for each of them. For starters, I’ve made a lot of progress on a replacement for the stock/grip on the Chaser, Bandit, and Airbug. I’ve designed and refined a part to convert the Diana Chaser, Airbug, and Bandit to an AR style grip:

So far, testing has been very promising. I’ve refined it a lot and am very close to releasing it. I’m also working on a forearm/tri-rail to accompany the new grip conversion:

Changing the stock allows you to access the hammer spring retention cap so that you can adapt an adjustable stock. I still have some work to do in order to make the buffer tube a tight fit. I’ll need to work with another manufacturer to make a steel or aluminum adapter for the buffer tube, but that should be pretty simple once I have the funds. Here’s a preview of the whole getup:

I’ve printed a bunch of the forearms and grip conversions. I’ve received all the hardware. I’ve ordered a bunch of Made in America grips. Once I receive all of those I will get the grip conversion and forearms listed at a great price. The adjustable stock conversion will come later!

Thanks for lookin’ y’all!

Crosman 13XX Plumper Pumper Update

I’ve added a honeycomb pattern to the Plumper Pumper to better match our new Crosman Grips. You can select from textured or smooth (no honeycomb) before placing in your cart. I’ve also thickened up the tabs closest to the trigger guard and changed the angle of the front of the handle to match the grip angle and to better hide the sheet metal pump arm. Check out one my latest builds with the Grip and Pump combo:

Also, I’m working on adding a polymer/wood composite pump handle and grip. If it works out you’ll be able to sand and stain it for a nice wood look at a fraction of the cost. If it doesn’t work out I’ll probably end up adding a matte desert tan pump and grip option. Here’s what the grips look like in matte desert tan:

I’m hoping to have good news to report on the wood/polymer composite grips and pump. I’ll post as soon as I have success or as soon as I give up and list the matte desert tan options. Stay tuned for that!

Thanks for lookin’ y’all!

Crosman 2240 Suppressor Update

The front sight post has come back. It learned a lot while it was away. We’ve reconciled our differences and found a compromise. I’ve let go of the indexing flat and he will no longer ruin one half of my prints as long as I put him at the very front of the suppressor and only print him on the 3d printers of his choosing.

The front sight post will need to be aligned manually now but it’s straighter, looks better, and works better. I’ve added the option to purchase the suppressor with or without the front sight post. You can find that here: 2240 Suppressor

Diana Airbug Suppressors

Just dropped the Diana Airbug suppressors. They are much like our 2240 slip-on suppressors. 3d printed in polycarbonate. Available with or without the front sight post. (I know, I know! I’ll be adding the front sight post to the 2240 again this week!) Check them out here: https://buck-rail.com/product/diana-airbug-suppressor/

More to come soon!

What A Year!

Merica!

Sending this from my phone. My dear wife just snapped this picture while her and the kids were watching fireworks from the backyard. Just want to say thank you for all the support and business. We’ve had to make some hard decisions this year and y’all made it a lot easier for us. We’re very grateful and do not take your business or support for granted. I’m working hard and looking forward to another crazy year! Lots of exciting stuff going on in that shed. Can’t wait to tell you about it. Or perhaps I should say, I’m very excited to tell you about it, when the time is right…

Happy New Year, y’all!

Crosman Grips Are Here and Other News

Our new grips for the Crosman airguns and PRod are finally here. They are simple and understated, but not to be underestimated. It took me a fortnight of fortnights, but now they look right and fit tight. They are solid and stolid and wont wriggle or giggle… outwardly. I may have gotten some brain-wires crossed in the making of these things.

Can you blame me?

They are compatible with the Crosman 1377, 1322, 2240, 2240XL, 2300, 1701, 1720, and Benjamin Marauder Pistol.

In other news, I’ve also released our Air Venturi Avenger Suppressors and Benjamin Sheridan Combo Scope Mounts. Check out all three in the links below.

Next product release will be the Crosman 2240 Forearms. I’m waiting on the hardware to come in before I list them.

Thanks for lookin’ y’all!
