Tropical Storm Beryl

Howdy folks. I hope this message finds you well. The Buck Rail shop and the whole crew have been without power since early Monday morning. I’m writing this message from my phone with the spotty service that I have. From what we’ve heard, we should be back up and running on Thursday at the earliest. In the meantime, we’re out of commission. Rest assured we’ll be working overtime to catch up once the lights are back on!

Sincerely,

Terry

Crosman 3622 Accessories

New Products for the 3622


I’ll keep this short and sweet. We just put up a couple of accessories for the Crosman 3622. A 1/2-20 threaded suppressor adapter (with and without sight post) that is scalloped for fill fitting clearance and an improved fill port cap. If you purchase them together you’ll get a discount on the fill cap. Also, our Crosman RMR mount pairs perfectly with the 3622. Check those all out here: Crosman 3622 Products

We have a lot of stuff out of stock right now while I switch over to our new Selective Laser Sintering Machine. We’ve had to get a lot of electrical, HVAC, insulation, and moving done to make this happen. Please be patient with us while we work to get caught up. I’m on it!

Thank you for your business and thank you for your support! It is not taken for granted. We’ll keep working hard to earn it!

Sincerely,

Big News from Buck Rail

I’ll try to keep this one short and sweet. I have a big announcement to make, but I’ll save it for the end. First off, I’ve just listed a a bunch of products. A couple have been long awaited…

Huben GK1 v3 Grip and QD Takedown Stock

Both of these products are now available. We’re going on a MUCH needed vacation next week so y’all will have to wait for an instructional video until I get back.

The GK1 v3 Grip Adapter is compatible with the power adjuster changes, includes some changes to the curvy bits, and the main screw hole is angled to catch the OEM barrel nut in it’s revised position. Check ’em out here: Huben GK1 Grip Adapter

The QD Takedown Stock accepts AR extension tubes and uses a cam lever to quickly attach and detach from a rear facing 1913 pic rail. Check ’em out here: QD Takedown Stock Adapter

Strike Industries Products


Strike Industries has been making a lot of innovative products. I’ve picked out a few that I think will be useful to airgun folks and have them in stock, ready to ship. We have their Dual-Folding Pic Clamping Stocks, Multi-Angle Grips, and Flat Tops. Get ya some: Strike Products

Crosman RMR Mounts and UTG MRDS

Those who were subscribed already know we’ve released the Crosman RMR Mounts and added the UTG OP3 Red Dots to the product lineup. I’ve made it so that they are discounted when combined. Check those out here: https://buck-rail.com/product/crosman-rmr-mount/

JMAC Products

I’ve had a lot of requests from folks wanting to know about the stock I’ve pictured with my 2240 and Huben GK1. JMAC is the company that makes those. They machine the skeletonized stocks in the USA from 7075 Aluminum and 4140 Steel Billets. They are pricey, but so popular they can be hard to find at times. I’ve listed those and will have them in hand ready to ship soon: https://buck-rail.com/?s=jmac+-gk1&post_type=product

The Big News

Buck Rail will be producing High-Resolution Selective Laser Sintered PA12 and PA11 nylon parts in-house. We’ve just signed a contract with Formlabs to secure our first SLS system. This will enable us to dramatically improve part quality, strength, and output.

Believe it or not, we’re still a home-based business. I have over 60 FDM 3d printers. Most of which are ran by me 24/6 in my garage! My sister and I fulfill orders in a shop we built in the backyard. Manufacturing and post-processing well over 3000 FDM parts a month and shipping them all over the world from my house has been quite a feat, but it’s also been holding us back. Right now Buck Rail is a mad man who turned a hobby into a liability with potential. This is the first big step in making Buck Rail a proper business that leaves it’s mark on this industry. There’s still a lot of work ahead, but I wanted y’all to be the first to know we’re doing this thang! I’ll update with more info once we receive the machine and get things moving.

There’s a lot more to say, but I’ll just leave it at that for now. It’s past midnight and I’m goin’ cross-eyed.

Thank you for your business and thank you for your support. I don’t take it for granted and will keep working hard to earn it!

Sincerely,

Terry Harman

New Products From Buck Rail

Howdy Folks. We’ve added a few products and will be adding more soon. Let me tell y’all about it real quick…

Crosman AR Grip Adapters


I’ve listed the Crosman AR Grip Adapters here: https://buck-rail.com/product/crosman-grip-adapter/

These Grip Adapters work on the 1377, 1322, 2240, 2289, etc. They will come with a lifetime warranty. They will not work on the Marauder Pistol. I’m working on another version that will work on the P-Rod. It’s a more complex design, but I’m making good progress on that. You can check out a quick preview of the install here:

Crosman RMR Mounts


I’ve listed the Crosman RMR mounts here: https://buck-rail.com/product/crosman-rmr-mount/

They’ll be available on 3/5/24. In the meantime, you can sign up to be notified when they are put in stock. They’re compatible with the Crosman 2240, 1377, 1322, 362, and 3622 and others like those. They will be come with a lifetime warranty.

You can check out a quick preview of the install here:

Crosman 3622


While I’m on the subject of Crosman mods I might as well mention this one. I’ve made a pretty over-the-top Conversion for the Crosman 3622. This is an ongoing project and nothing is finalized, yet. The one pictured above has a Nylon AR Grip Adapter with 1913 Pic Stock Adapter, and full length floating aluminum handguard. I’ve also come up with a simple improved cap for the fill nipple and a threaded suppressor adapter that allows for filling. Those are coming soon. Weeks.

The Quick Takedown Stock Pictured above is in production and will be available to order in a few weeks. It will be compatible with any airgun that has a rear-facing 1913 pic rail and any airgun we make an adapter for. So that would be the Diana Chaser, Bandit, Airbug, Beeman 2027/2028, Diana Stormrider, Crosman 2240, 1377, 1322, 2289, P-Rod, Huben GK1, and more. Stay tuned for that.

Huben GK1


A lot of small companies are coming out with stuff for this airgun. It seems like anytime I post something for it someone or multiple folks do the same thing right after me or they incorporate my ideas into their existing products. Same thing on the Notos. Whether they copied me or not, it’s a bit discouraging and I will likely put this platform on the backburner until the dust settles. Especially because a lot of these folks are marketing way more aggressively than I’m willing to.

With that being said, I will press with the products that are already available. The Grip Adapters for the v1 are available and the Grip Adapter for the v3 will be available within a month. You can check those out here: https://buck-rail.com/product/huben-gk1-grip-adapter/

The Machined Aluminum Rear Pic Adapters for the Huben GK1 are also available now. They are covered by a lifetime warranty. You can check those out here: https://buck-rail.com/product/huben-gk1-stock-adapter/

You can check out a short preview of the installation here:

Also, expect to see optics mounts for the Huben GK1 available through Buck Rail soonl. I’ll be partnering with Huben3dparts.com on that. He’s one of the original Huben GK1 aftermarkets parts guys and worthy of the airgun community’s support. He’s getting ripped off worse than me and he’s not as established as Buck Rail. I’ve tested some of his 3d parts and they are top-notch. If you’re into the Huben GK1 definitely check out his stuff at Huben3dParts.com

AV Avenger


The Improved Avenger Nylon Grip Adapter (accepts metal extension tubes, compatible with bottles and plenums) will be listed soon. More details will be posted this week. We’ll still offer our original grip adapter as well.

Upcoming Products


Here’s a shortened list of some upcoming Buck Rail products to be on the lookout for:

  • Barra 1100z Tac Conversion
  • Gauntlet 1, G2, and SL30 Kits. These will be available through the Gauntlet king, Hajimoto Productions
  • Air Venturi Avenge-X Tactical Conversion
  • Improved kits for the Diana Bandit, Chaser, Airbug, Stormrider, and Trailscout

What’s Next?


  • Folks have been hounding me about the Airacuda Max long enough. I’ll give it a go soon.
  • Crosman ICON Kit Redesign
  • Much much more…

Other Interesting News


I’m still chipping away at the Hatsan Sortie Full-Auto Conversion and the Blitz M2 Projects. The latest on the Blitz M2…

The base has a backplate that is bolted to the steel frame under the body. The mount accepts the M2 Pintle so it can be quickly taken down, moved to the tripod, or installed by just pulling the detent pin and lifting it out or dropping it in. I’m going to have a small bottle under the body. It will be tethered with the plumbing ran through the carbon fiber tube so that it will be mostly hidden and protected. Then I’ll need to find a place to run it…

Shadow Ban


We are currently shadow banned on Facebook and Instagram and have multiple strikes on our YouTube channel. Our social accounts currently cannot be shown to folks who are not followers, subscribed etc. and we cannot advertise or promote our company or products on any major platform. I’ve recently discovered that we are severely limited for good financing and insurance options as a “firearms-adjacent” company. I’m looking into it to see what our options are. If you ever hear me say “like, subscribe, share” etc. please cast me into the sea. With that being said, if you care to support or promote Buck Rail feel free to spread the word however you see fit.

That’s all I’ve got for now. Thank you for your business and thank you for your support. It’s not taken for granted and I’ll continue to work hard to earn it!

Sincerely,

Terry

New Products and Other News 3/13/24

Blitz M2 in all it’s glory

Buck Rail News


Howdy Folks! This is just a quick update on new products that are out and updates on ongoing projects. EDIT: this is not brief. I had a lot to say…

I’ve been a little distracted. I’ve had a lot of fun on the Blitz Ma Deuce project (pictured above) and I’ve made a lot of progress on the Hatsan Sortie Full-Auto Electronic Conversion (View on YouTube). I’ll be posting more info about those as I have updates. This is just for kicks right now. A lot of folks have asked when and how much. I have no plans at the moment. These are big projects with lots of moving parts. I don’t know if I have the stuff it would take to sell these without imploding. So I’m just having fun and researching, if you will, and considering what options we have. Anywho, I’ve also been working with a couple of OEMs on some really cool projects. With all that, I’m still busy as ever with product development for Buck Rail. Let’s get right into it…

New Product Release


We recently released the Umarex Origin Tactical Conversion Kit (HERE).

Here’s a little preview of the installation process and a closer look at the parts:

Is the embed not working? Check out the short YouTube video at this link:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xra4zx_ibIE&t=4s

What’s Next?


Huben GK1 AR Grip Adapters are listed – HERE – so that folks can sign up to be notified of their release. These are two to three weeks out. I was able to keep the price very low on these even with high-grade materials and still made in the USA. Mainly because the part is relatively small. I’ll give a solid date soon. These will only work on the v2 and v3 with modification. I’ve been told the v2 and v3 have slightly different geometry on the curvy bits just behind the magazine. I f this goes well I’ll get a v2 and v3 and see what needs to be done to make it work. If someone is willing to loan me there v2 or v3 that would certainly speed up the process. It’ll likely happen either way, though. In the meantime, it would require some filing or grinding to fit those models.

Huben GK1 CNC Milled Aluminum Rear Pic Adapters – I just got word from the machine shop that these are done and currently being inspected pre-shipment. Should be released around the same time as the Grip Adapters. I’ll wait till I have them in hand and have tested them before listing.

Huben GK1 Handguards (Pictured above) – I’m still on the fence about these. They work great, but they are so large that the price will be pretty steep. If there’s enough interest I’ll do it, but I’m always wary of higher ticket items, because I end up putting in a lot up front and it comes back to bite me if they don’t sell. Any Huben owners out there? Let me know your thoughts.

Quick Takedown Adjustable Stock Adapter – I’m REALLY excited about this one. I like takedown guns, backpacker guns, truck guns, mini-carbine, PCCs etc. and I made this mostly because it’s something I really wanted. Hopefully other folks feel the same. As you well know, I’ve been putting rear-facing pics on everything I can. So this stock will be compatible with a lot of different airguns and I’m adding more to the lineup all the time. It has a simple cam lever mechanism either opens or closes the pic clamp. That’s it. Open the clamp, slide it on, close the clamp. Now you have a compact adjustable AR stock on your airgun. Ready to switch it to a different airgun or put it back in the case? Flip the clamp open, slide it off, and witch it, case it, backpack it, etc. It is made in the USA and will be very affordable. The design is complete and I’m waiting for the final prototypes to come in. These should be pretty easy to bring to market mid-April.

Umarex Gauntlet 1, G2, and SL30 Tactical Conversion – Another exciting addition. This has been a common request for some time and I finally worked up the gumption to tackle this project while I was on an Umarex kick. The kit will be compatible with all versions of the Gauntlet. This will be my first kit to do fully in commercial-grade PA12 nylon. Here it is on the SL30:

I do plan on working up some barrel band options as well. Stay tuned for that.

Barra 1100z and Beeman Chief 2 Tactical Conversions – This one is a little different from my usual style…

I came up with this to overcome a challenge I’ve had with airguns that have long protruding gauge stems. I haven’t been able to come up with a good looking AR-style handguard for these airguns. I’ve had that problem on the JTS Airacuda MAX as well. It requires a lot of material to blend the gauge and the parts end up looking kind of hokey in my opinion. I wont even show you what I came up with for the MAX. If folks like this style and this is something that y’all want I’ll press with this on the 1100z and Beeman Chief II then I’ll go for the Airacuda MAX next. Let me know!

Crosman 2240, 1322, P-Rod AR Grip Adapter – The P-Rod Tactical Conversions have not done as well as I thought they would. I think a big part of that may be the price. It is higher than some of our other kits, especially because it requires the Marauder trigger. I’m still really proud of that one (It’s one of my personal favorites) and will continue to make those as needed, but I know I need to offer something at the sort of price that folks have come to expect from Buck Rail.

That’s where these little guys come in…

Something like this has been done before, but this is unique for a number of reasons. It will make use of all the original parts except for the sear spring. It will reuse the trigger, sear, safety switch, safety spring and bearing, and the two dowel pins. I kept many of the dimensions the same as the original grip frame to ensure max compatibility with the many aftermarkets parts for these airguns. You can see that this one works well with the 13XX Pump and will be compatible with the P-Rod Handguard, Forearm, our adjustable stocks, rear pics, side folders, so on and so on. It will be made with commercial-grade PA12 Nylon like a lot of our other recent products, but because it is so small we’ll be able to keep the retail price very low. This is only the first prototype. I designed this and printed two iterations just yesterday evening so there is still some development to do, but we already have a fully-functional and reliable prototype. More to come on this one.

Thanks for reading this far. I love you too. Pssst. You wanna know about the stubby barrel on the 2240 above? Or do you want a custom length Crosman Barrel? I was going to do this myself until I stumbled on this man here. Check out MellonAir. find the barrels at this link: MellonAir Barrels

His prices are incredible and he does a great job. But don’t get on his nerves. He’s retired and basically does this as a hobby. He also make’s the lowest price flat top pistons and valves I know of. Do your research and be sure about what you want and how to install it, put your order in, and be willing to wait for him to get to it. You won’t regret it… But don’t tell him I sent y’all!

I have so much more in the works, but I’m all typed out for now.

Thank you very much for your business and thank you for your support. It’s not taken for granted and I’ll keep working hard to earn it.

Sincerely,

Terry

New Products From Buck Rail

This will be a quick one. I just put three new products up that I forgot to tell y’all about in the last post. Check ’em out!

Diana P-Five Adjustable Stocks


Much like our other Stocks it includes a machined 4140 steel adapter, polymer extension tube, and long steel bolt for reinforcement. It can be used as a cocking aid without fear of it breaking. I like it most with the UTG Pro S4 Buttstock, but it can be purchased with all the buttstocks we offer. The LOP for the S4 is 12-14.5 inches. It is 12-16 inches for all the other stocks. Works great for kids or adults. Mine has the front sight cut off and a CF shroud for a cocking aid for my youngest son. It’s a really fun pick-up-and-shoot airgun.

Diana P-Five Adjustable Stocks

Crosman Threaded Adapters w/Front Sight Posts


This is a new option for our UNF threaded adapter for Crosman 7/16 inch barrels. It has a dovetail groove cut into the top so that a front sight can be pressed in. It comes with a 3d printed ASA front sight. I set the height so that it can be cut down. It can be easily filed, painted, glued, etc. if you want to customize it to your liking. Works on the Crosman 362 (pictured below), 2240, 2289, and 13XX with long barrels etc.

Crosman Threaded Adapters w/Front Sight Posts

Crosman 24 inch Barrels


I’ve added the 24 inch barrels from Crosman in .177 and .22 caliber. These are a little long for my taste, but they do work on the 2240, 1322, 1377, 2289, etc. especially with our AR Carbine conversions. All of our barrels now ship in triangular boxes with custom made spacers that secure the barrel within the packaging to cut down on the possibility of damage and/or getting stuck in USPS distribution conveyors (yeah, that happened).

Crosman 24 inch Barrels

The Crosman parts have been going quickly, but not coming in quickly. I’m working with them on this issue.

Thank you for your trust, thank you for your business, and thank you for your support. I’ll keep working hard to earn it!

Sincerely,

Terry

Buck Rail News 2/8/24

Howdy folks. It’s been a while. I hope this newsletter finds you well. I have a lot of updates to share so to keep things brief and simple here’s a summary of what is covered in this post if you’d like to read further.

UX Origin Tactical Conversion Release
Products recently put back in stock
New Product Releases
New Options for Existing Products
Shipping Changes
Upcoming Projects
Side Folder News/Update
Heavily Discounted Products
A Personal Note

UX Origin Tactical Conversion


The UX Origin Tactical Conversion Kit is posted, but will not be released until Friday, 3/8/24. In case it’s delayed you can sign up on the product page to be notified when it is dropped.

This grip adapter will also work on the Air Venturi Avenger. We’ll still keep the old Avenger Grip Adapter up so that folks have options. This grip adapter is of a much higher grade of material with a much finer finish than the parts I manufacture myself. Which bring me to my next point.

This kit is a bit pricier than I’d like for it be. The grip adapter is the main price driver. I’m currently having it manufactured by another company in Houston. There’s also a small machined part for securing the adapter to the airgun. I plan to make these commercial-grade parts in-house eventually and I’ll be able to bring the price down dramatically. It’s still way under anything else out there, but I know we can do better on the price, in time, with the right equipment.

Back in Stock


I’m getting caught up slowly, but surely. Here’s what just went back in stock, in case you weren’t notified:

Marauder Pistol Tactical Conversion Kits
UX Notos Tactical Conversion Kits
13XX UNI Suppressors
Avenger UNI Suppressors

New Products


We’ve recently added some new items to the lineup:

Magpul MOE K2 Grip
Magpul MOE K2-XL Grip
Hatsan Blitz Threaded Adapter
UTG Bug Buster 3-12X32 AO Scope

I’ll likely be adding more optics from Leapers. We’re also a dealer for Monstrum Tactical now and will likely be adding some of their optics and other products. Are there any other brands in the budget category that you’d like for Buck Rail to carry? Let us know.

New Options


I’ve started making changes to our product listings to provide more options on our Tactical Conversion Kits. Most of our kits now allow you to choose Black or Flat Dark Earth grips and/or buttstocks so they no longer need to be added separately. Also, with the addition of the Magpul Grips there will be more grip options to choose from within the grip adapter or kit listing. The following products have new options available:
Beeman Marshall Carbine
Diana Chaser Carbines
Avenger Tac Kits
Beeman 202X Tac Kits
P-Rod Stocks
13XX Stocks
2240 Stocks
Stormrider Tac Kits
P-Rod Tac Kits
Notos Tac Kits

Shipping Changes


Speaking of options, we’ve added more shipping options for domestic and international customers. There are still some things to work out on the back end, but you should now be seeing a handful of shipping options to choose from. We still offer “free” USPS shipping on all domestic orders, but you can now select faster methods or UPS shipping methods. For our international customers, we had some issues initially getting the rates to calculate properly, but that is mostly ironed out now. If anyone overpays for shipping we will refund the difference.

Upcoming Projects


Huben GK1 – We’ve had VERY many inquiries about our Huben GK1 parts. I’m working on it. The rear pic stock adapter will be released first. It will be CNC machined aluminum. I’ve put the order in with the manufacturer. Now we just wait.

Some projects on the agenda. I’ve slowed down a bit so these could be far off:
Barra 1100Z and Beeman Chief Tac Kits
Gauntlet Tac Kit
Beeman 202X and Crosman ICON Tac Kit Redesign
Crosman RMR Sight Mount
Quick Takedown Pic Clamping Stocks
Magnetic Side Fold Pic Clamp Stock
Threaded Magnetic Side Folder
UX Fusion 2 Tac Kit

And much more…

Side Folder Update


We got word from Leapers that they have discontinued their AK side folder. From what I understand, they may have a replacement for that product coming in October. I don’t know anything about it, but I’m fairly confident it will be overbuilt for airguns and the price will likely reflect that. I plan on offering more side folder options that make more sense for airguns. The side folders pictured above clamp to a rear-facing pic rail and latches magnetically. I also have a more robust threaded version in the works. Unlike our Poor Man’s Side Folder these use only common off-the-shelf parts. Stay tuned for those.

Speaking of the Poor Man’s Side Folders. They are out of stock right now while we wait for more custom machined steel hinge pins to come in. It will likely be a month or so before we have those back in stock. That was my fault. I’m working on it.

Discounted Stocks


I’ve recently dropped the price on all of our UTG Buttstocks in order to clear out some room for other products. I really like these buttstocks, especially the S4. They are made in USA and nothing comes close price-wise. But apparently most folks don’t want ’em. That’s their loss and mine, but gain for you! Subscribers can use this code – LONGREAD – for an additional $5 off of the already very low prices. Check those out here:
UTG S3 Buttstock
UTG S4 Buttstock

A Personal Note


Many of you offered your condolences and encouragement in comments and emails when my father passed away. I threw that obituary up so that folks would understand when I take a step back for a bit. I didn’t expect so much love from our customers, associates, and friends. It was unexpected and surprisingly comforting. Thank you all very much. I won’t forget that.

This year you’ll start seeing some of my designs popping up under major OEM brands. This is good. The big companies can bring these things to the market at lower prices and better quality than I can and it will help us to keep scaling up without me running myself into the ground. There’s a lot of cool stuff in the pipeline. Keep a look out for that.

As always, thank you for putting your trust and confidence in us. Thank you for your business. And thank you for your support. We’ll keep working hard to earn it!

Sincerely,

Terry

My Old Man

Folks, we’re all good here. I hate to put our business all out in the open, but I thought y’all should know why I’m going to be out of stock for a bunch of stuff and why we’ll not be fulfilling orders on Monday. My old man passed away in our home on the 13th. It was a good death. He was surrounded by lots on grandbabies and lots of love and passed in the night. This man always ensured we had some woods nearby to play in and worked hard for his family. If you appreciate what I’m doing with Buck Rail you have him, in part, to thank. Please be patient with us while we mourn for him. I’ll be back at it on Tuesday.

There is so much that I could say, but I’ll just leave you with this obituary from my sister:

Terry Lee Harman, Sr., 69, resident of Santa Fe, Texas passed from this life, Wednesday, December 13, 2023. Terry was born in Galveston, Texas to parents Ted and Vera Harman on September 6, 1954. He was preceded in death by his mother and brother, Eric O’Neal. He was raised by his doting grandparents, Anthony and Vera Ollie, in Galveston, Texas. It was there he learned to garden, hunt, fish, crab golf and appreciate all the intricate beauties of God’s creation. He made an art of everything he did, including his lifelong career as a pipeline welder.

Terry took Don McLean’s words to heart: “I can still remember how that music used to make me smile and I knew if I had my chance that I could make those people dance and maybe they’d be happy for a while…”

He was a musician at heart and leaves behind a personal soundtrack to the lives of his loving family; his wife of 44 years, Kimberly Harman; daughters, Sheri Etheridge (Shawn), Julie Harman, Amanda Schanzer (Eric); sons, Daniel Harman, Shane Harman (Emily), Terry Harman Jr. (Jaime); sisters, Amanda McGuire, Christina Drewry; brothers, Randall Harman, David Harman, Johnathan Harman, and Teddy Harman; 18 grandchildren; as well as numerous extended family, friends and colleagues.”

Sincerely,

Terry Jr

New Products 12/4/23

I’ve listed a few new products and have more coming soon-ish. Here’s the down-low…

Beeman Buck-Ends


I’ve repurposed the Beeman Marshall Grips and collaborated with a local manufacturer to turn them into bookends. It started out as a joke from my sister, but these things are no joke. They are thoughtfully designed, heavy, and well built in the USA by two Houston, TX based businesses. Check them out here: Beeman Buck-Ends

UTG Scopes


We get asked quite a bit for scope recommendations. In the budget category, these UTG compact AO Scopes are hard to beat. I’ve listed the Bug Buster AO Scopes with Dovetail or Pic Rings here: Bug Buster Scopes

I’m in talks with Hawke Sport Optics as well in the hopes that we can offer their Vantage line of scopes. Another great pick in the budget category. Are there any other budget optics y’all would like to see here? We have more of our open glass reflex sights on order. Should be in within two weeks.

UTG Flip-Up Irons


I’ve been a fan of these for a while. Now that we’re making parts for the Umarex Notos it seems a good time to offer these up, as they are perfect for that airgun in it’s OEM stock. The OEM Notos stock is not compatible with the UX iron sights, but these come out at the perfect height on that platform. Check them out here: UTG Super Slim Flip-Up Sights

If folks are interested I can make flip-up iron mounts for all sorts of airguns. I’ve been doing this for a while on my own collection. Just say the word and I’ll make it happen.

Upcoming


I have a lot of new products in the pipeline. Most of them will have to wait until next year as we are very busy fulfilling holiday orders. Here is a short list of what is upcoming in order of priority:

1 – Stormrider MJF Nylon Grip Adapter with tube receiver (Done, but waiting until we slow down a bit to release)
2 – Umarex Origin Tactical Conversion Kit (Done, but waiting until we slow down a bit to release)
3 – Rear Pic Adapter for Tube Receivers, like the Notos, P-Rod, Stormrider, etc.

UX Fusion 2


I’m also working on a pretty slick kit for the Umarex Fusion 2. Here’s a little preview:

Huben GK1


After that, I’ll be releasing a few parts for the Huben GK1. I know most of our customers aren’t into $1700 airguns, but this on one is so unique that I couldn’t pass on the opportunity to kit it out. I will be going with commercial-grade fused PA12 Nylon for these parts. Here’s a pic of the first prototype printed up in my garage just for testing.

Personal Note


I’m still caring for my dad full-time and my oldest son and helper just broke his arm after falling off a hay bale… So it’s just me (and there ain’t much of me) printing, post-processing, and assembling parts. Please be patient with us while we get through this tough season. I’m working like a madman to keep up and move us forward. On that note, it’s currently midnight and I still have some work to do.

Until next time,

Terry

P-Rod Tactical Conversions

P-Rod Tactical Kits In Stock Now


P-Rod Kits just dropped. Some folks got a notification before they were released. That was my mistake. Sorry about that. They’re in now and I only have 20. It will likely be a bit before I have more in stock. If they do okay I should be able to make a larger order for trigger assemblies and grip adapters on the next round. I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving!

Transcript for President Abraham Lincoln’s Thanksgiving Proclamation from October 3,
1863


By the President of the United States

A Proclamation

The year that is drawing toward its close has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and
healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the
source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature
that they cannot fail to penetrate and even soften the heart which is habitually insensible to the
ever-watchful providence of Almighty God.

In the midst of a civil war of unequaled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to
foreign states to invite and provoke their aggressions, peace has been preserved with all nations,
order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed
everywhere, except in the theater of military conflict; while that theater has been greatly
contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union.

Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national
defense have not arrested the plow, the shuttle, or the ship; the ax has enlarged the borders of our
settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even
more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste
that has been made in the camp, the siege, and the battlefield, and the country, rejoicing in the
consciousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with
large increase of freedom.

No human counsel hath devised, nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They
are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who while dealing with us in anger for our sins,
hath nevertheless remembered mercy.

It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently, and gratefully
acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American people. I do, therefore,
invite my fellow-citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and
those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of
November next as a Day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in
the heavens. And I recommend to them that, while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him
for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national
perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows,
orphans, mourners, or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably
engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty hand to heal the wounds of the
nation, and to restore it, as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes, to the full
enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility, and union.

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United Stated
States to be affixed.

Done at the city of Washington, this third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand
eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the United States the eighty-eighth.
