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
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!
Our latest Silencer is for the Crosman 1077 RepeatAir. This one really worked out nicely. It uses the same silencer and thread cap as the M4-177 with a custom adapter designed exclusively for the 1077. I just made this video with my eldest son. We had fun with it. In the video I show off the adapter CAD model, detail the installation, test fire it with and without the silencer, and say, “uuh” over 50 times. I’m workin’ on that last part. Thanks for lookin!
I’ve completed the design and testing of my latest Silencer for the Crosman PFM16. The Crosman PFM16 is a full metal CO2 powered Semi-Auto BB Pistol. It has a nice heft to it and a compact and sleek design. I tried to keep the design similarly compact and sleek with matching aesthetics.
Given that this silencer is so much more compact than our others I’m amazed at how affective it is. I’ve used a 60 degree cone-shaped 7 baffle design like in our Crosman 13XX, Daisy 415, and Daisy 426 silencers, but in a much smaller package. Even with the more compact design it is equally, if not more, affective than our others.
I’ve also uploaded a little video to YouTube with installation details and a firing test. I use a pellet trap and iPhone for the video which isn’t super helpful for really hearing the sound difference. You can check out the reviews for the Daisy Powerline 415 Silencer to see what others have to say about our silencer design.
I received a request a while back to make a Silencer for the Daisy Powerline 408. I went out and bought one to have a look and see what I can do. I messed with it here and there for a while and finally came up with something I feel good about. I replaced the whole stock plastic part covering the barrel with a 3d printed one with a built-in suppressor and optics mount. I also was able to keep the front sight post if you prefer to shoot with open sights.
I started out by measuring and modelling the stock shroud. As you can see in the picture below there was a lot of features to get right. I lucked up and didn’t have to spend a lot of time optimizing it for 3d printing. I printed the shroud and installed all the guts without issue. Next, I added a printable silencer to the end and tested it out. If you’d like to check that out you can see it on YouTube HERE or look at my previous blog post.
I really like the 408. It’s nice to shoot pellets with a rifled barrel and CO2. Considering the decent accuracy you can get I though it might be nice to add an optics mount as well. My first few attempts were not great. The optics would clamp on the sharp edge of the dovetail rather than the grooves under the sharp edges. It would clamp really well, but deform the sharp plastic edges. Also, it was a challenge to make it look sleek and like it belonged on the gun. I eventually found a way to make the 3d printed dovetail functional and look like it belongs there. See below:
Finally, I added some of the little cosmetic details to tie it all together and printed the final prototype.
These things take a long time to print(8hrs/piece) on an FDM printer at .2mm layers and would be pretty costly for a 3d printed part. I most likely will have them printed in PA12 Nylon by an American company given that the cost is comparable if done in bulk. Nylon is extremely tough and the SLS(Selective Laser Sintering) process leaves a very smooth finish. Here’s a little preview of a prototype that I’ve had printed in Nylon using SLS. When I finally put these up for sale they will have a similar finish.
Hopefully I’ll have them ready for early to mid-November. Thanks for reading!
