I was going to call this Pontifications on Wormholes, and Other News, but pragmatism won the day. More on that later. I’ve been busy and have many irons in the fire. That’s not new. But the products of my BUSYness are new. So here that is. Enjoy!
Benjamin Marauder Pistol Forearm – A great customer suggested that I make some of these without the pressure gauge hole for folks who have added a regulator and removed the gauge block. Now you can choose to include or exclude the pressure gauge hole. Check that out HERE.
Benjamin Marauder Pistol Suppressor – I’ve worked up a tiny little suppressor for the Benjamin Marauder that threads directly into the barrel shroud. It’s the same diameter as the shroud and only about 4″, but makes a BIG difference. It has a honeycomb pattern on the exterior to hide layer lines and provides some grip for installation. It’ll be printed in Polycarbonate and ridiculously cheap. No adapter, no interference with filling, low price, small package, and BIG reduction in noise. More to come on that soon!
Crosman 2240 Suppressor – I’ve been getting so many emails about these. The simple truth is that I broke them and now I’m struggling to fix them. I’ve gotten rid of the printers that printed them most reliably and decided at the same time to take it down and make some improvements. Thicker walls, moved the front sight post to the front, added set screw, etc. Now everything I try causes some other issue and now I cant even print the originals without issue. This is our number one seller, so believe me, I’m working on it, but have no ETA for when they’ll be available. That’s the bad news, but here’s the good news…
Crosman 1/2-20 UNF Adapter – I’m working on a 1/2-20 UNF adapter for the Crosman 7/16″ish barrel. That may right my wrong with the 2240 suppressors. It’ll be machined from 4140 steel, Black Oxide finish, and have 2 set screws to secure it to the barrel. I’ve already ordered them in bulk, but I’m taking a chance on the tolerance for the muzzle hole diameter. I have a bunch of Crosman barrels and will test them out on those, but could end up scrapping a whole lot of them and going back to the drawing board. If you know the tolerance on the barrel outside diameter let me know!
1/2-20 UNF Suppressors – A few customers suggested making these suppressors compatible with .25 caliber as well. I’ve listened and added an option to select either .177/.22 Caliber or .25 Caliber at checkout. I don’t yet have a .25 Caliber airgun with 1/2-20 UNF threads to test it on so bear with me if you purchase one and aren’t satisfied. There’s no need to immediately go tell the world that Buck-Rail ruined your life and you’ll never know happiness again. Just let me know the issue and I’ll take care of it. Check that out HERE.
AirForce TalonP Suppressor – Some of you may have noticed a suppressor on my TalonP in a blog post I did a while back. That was when I “permanently” stopped selling suppressors temporarily… Now that I’ve “temporarily” resumed selling suppressors permanently I have been getting them ready for selling to the masses. Out of all the products I’ve designed and sold, the AirForce Grip and Forearm have done the worst. In fact, I sold 1 set! Thank you Kevin… I know that will change with time because they’re awesome and the right folks probably just don’t know about them yet. So I’m going out on a limb and adding a suppressor to the mix as well. I’ve been using mine for a while and it has been great.
Daisy 880 Suppressor Kit– One thing that has been surprisingly popular is our suppressor for the Daisy 880. I’ve relisted them with some minor improvements. The print quality is improved and the suppressor is now smaller in diameter with the same report suppression and functionality. Check that out HERE.
Crosman Picatinny and Dovetail Scope Mounts – I’ve made some minor improvements to these scope mounts. I’ve dropped their height slightly and decreased their length so that two of them together make up the distance from front to back of one of our Red Dots… It’s always bothered me that they stick out a little bit from the Red Dots and never thought to change it! (More on the Red Dots in a bit.) Also, they no longer have the interlocking feature in the middle seam. Now they are flat. This allows for more adjustability and the ability to shim them if necessary. I’ve also changed the geometry of the groove to allow for square crossbars to go through without interference. These are really only necessary on firearms with heavy recoil. I will post updated pictures of all that soon. Check those out HERE.
Hawkeye Reflex Sights – I did not intend on restocking these because prices get higher every time I order them. I figured folks would just go over to Amazon, etc. and get them there instead. I’m sure that has happened some, but many folks have voiced that they’d rather buy the Scope Mounts and Red Dot together from us. I did not anticipate that, but certainly appreciate that. They are on order and I’m hoping to have them in stock by the end of the month. Check out the mount and red dot bundle HERE.
Crosman 1377/1322 Adjustable Stock Kit – Our Benjamin Marauder and Crosman 2240 Adjustable Stock Kits have done great. I started to work on the details of the 13XX Stock at the same time as those, then got busy and completely forgot about them. Luckily, a customer reminded me about them so I got back at it and now have the steel machined adapters on order. I should be able to get those listed for sale by the end of the month.
In Other News – I have a lot of 3d printers. 3d printing is very slow. So I need a lot of them to keep up. We’re at 22 and counting. Though they don’t use a lot of power, 22 of them running simultaneously certainly does. These are all in a very small space behind my home. You could say it is very dense. In fact, I’m afraid that if I add much more to that small space I may tear a hole in the space-time continuum and be sucked into a place of utter darkness. Seriously though, I can’t draw anymore power. My cousin is an electrician and is going to help me with that. But, if buck-rail suddenly goes dark you’ll be the first to know why…
I get at least an email a day about this silencer. That is good and that is bad. Good because folks are interested in buying my products and bad because I am putting too much time into not selling them. I’ve gone back and forth about relisting them. They were my babies for a little while, but they started to turn on me when I established a limit for how much time I allotted to them. Full disclosure, I ended up having to talk folks through the install a lot. Not everyone read the description or watched the video. And not everyone knows their way around a hammer. If that’s you, I forgive you. And if that’s not you, from the bottom of my toes, thank you. Better yet, thank you both …but to varying degrees. So I’ve basically decided that it would be better to answer emails WITH a sell rather than WITHOUT. They’re back up for sale until I get worn out again. I would do well to remember that these are good problems to have.
As of 8/15/21 I have a good bit of them printed and we’re ready to take orders. Find the grip and forearm HERE. The stock and suppressor will come around eventually, but I need a bit more time on those. Thank you for your patience y’all! -Terry
Check out our new forearms for the Benjamin Marauder Pistol. They’re thicker, taller, rounder, smarter, yet humbler, and more chivalrous. I’ve added a picatinny accessory rail as well for mounting bipods, lasers, flashlights, bayonets… etc.
After looking into it more I came across this case from the US 1st Circuit Court of Appeals: https://caselaw.findlaw.com/us-1st-circuit/1527670.html This case is also referenced in DonnyFL’s disclaimer. Long story short is this: legislators, law enforcement, and the courts all have opinions about the law but ultimately the court’s interpretation is most important and that’s what I’m going with.
So silencers are back on. I’m sorry for the flip-flopping confusion. For now I’m just going to sell the 1/2-20 UNF and Diana M10 Suppressors. There will be more to come when I find the time.
Update 7/25/21: AirForce TalonP, Condor, and Texan Accessories
I’ve been working on this for a while now and have finally come up with a few things I can feel good about. Some of the parts include a more ergonomic pistol grip, thicker forearm with picatinny rail, and a sleek adjustable buttstock. These should be compatible with the other Airforce PCP airguns of this platform.
The Adjustable Buttstock
The adjustable buttstock slips over the aluminum air cylinder. It is held in place by two steel non-marring nylon tipped set screws. It give you from a 10-1/2″ to 14″ LOP. It is printed in two parts and bolted together with two stainless socket head cap screws and nuts.
The improved forearm is longer, wider, and taller. It feels better in the hand and looks less like a sausage than the stock forearm. I’ve also added a picatinny style rail for a bipod, laser, flashlight, etc. It will come with a longer countersunk screw to replace the shorty that secured the stock sausage… I mean, forearm.
The Pistol Grip
The stock pistol grip isn’t terrible, but it definitely had room for improvement. I’ve made the new grip more ergonomic. It will install using the same screw that secured the stock pistol grip.
I’m trying to get plenty of them printed before I list them, but expect these to be available very soon! Thanks for lookin! -Terry
NEW ACCESSORIES FOR THE CROSMAN 13XX, 2240, AND BENJAMIN P-ROD
All of these items are a long time coming. Many of you have recommended them or have otherwise indicated that you are anxiously awaiting their release. I’m very pleased to announce that we have released our new pump for the Crosman 1377/1322 and adjustable AR-Style stocks for the Crosman 2240 and the Benjamin Marauder Pistol. I’m very excited to enter into the world of PCP airguns and looking forward to making more handy accessories for this category of airguns. I’m also pleased to announce that our Dr. Murfee mount works great with the Benjamin Marauder Pistol as well. Check out some pics of our latest products:
I will develop an adjustable stock for the Crosman 1377/1322 next!
P.S. International shipping is back on. Please be patient. We will fulfill your order very quickly, but shipping may still be slow. Also, silencers are not for sale for now. Please see this page for more info: https://buck-rail.com/suppressors/
This 2240XL features our 1/2″ UNF Polycarbonate silencer, Dr. Murfee mount, folding bipod, 4×32 compact scope with high rise rings, and an adjustable 6 position stock. The stock adapter and buffer tube assembly can be seen in more detail below:
The buffer tube is 3D printed in ABS and all the other parts are steel. This particular setup allows for an 11″ to 14.5″ length of pull.
My son, Beaux, loves to shoot the Daisy Buck, but he can shoot much more accurately than the airgun can. I gave him this airgun set up at 11″ LOP and we saw a MAJOR improvement in accuracy and the airgun is actually easier for him to handle than the Daisy. Unfortunately, I had to take it away after he tried to take out a bird that landed on our fence…
It’ll be a bit before I start selling these. When I do it’ll be a complete kit at a great price.
I have a lot of new parts to release, but I couldn’t wait anymore on this one. This silencer is printed in Polymax Polycarbonate plastic. It takes 8 hours to print just one, but we get a much tougher product in the end. Some things that I’ve done differently with this one is include an expansion chamber at the muzzle, reduced ID baffles nearer the muzzle, and incorporated a stainless steel helical insert for very reliable threading/unthreading. This makes the Diana Chaser Pistol neighbor-friendly without affecting accuracy or muzzle velocity. Here’s a look at the inside:
In this video I install the silencer and test fire the Chaser with and without it. I just got a new mic, so this video actually ALMOST does it justice. Also, you may notice another part I have in the works for the Chaser. That will be coming soon. Thanks for looking!
Hey y’all. I’m writing from my phone. We’ve been without power for a couple of days now down here in Texas. We’ve made coffee in the fireplace, cooked zucchini on a crawfish burner, cooked bacon on the barbecue pit, burned two truckloads of wood, and dabbled in some plumbing in the attic. We’ve had lots of help from family and friends!
I placed a warning on the webpage that we may not be able to fulfill orders for a while and still got 30 or so orders!
As I write this, the power is on and has been for an hour, but the powers that be are conducting rotating blackouts so we expect that it will not last. The good news is that we’ve been able to fulfill all of our orders up until this point!
We will continue to fulfill orders as long as we have power. Thank you for your patience and thank you for your support!
