If you just write these
off as little air pistols, you are seriously missing an opportunity
for a fine PCP. What I've found, thru the years, is that when
I make what people describe in their e-mails ... they do not recognize
it. Read the specs. Be realistic about what you can do with these
products. These little "air pistols" have the power
of a 22 rifle!
Then too ... of course
... some people just don't like yellow. haha. Well, we could photograph
yours on another color. ;?) Seriously ... look at the carbine
stocks. Consider the value you see here.

This unit carried a Stainless Steel Shrouded Barnes Chrome Moly
Barrel. An open barrel format is standard. Bi-Pod mount would
be an option. Scope rail is standard and 11mm format. Shrouded
pistols are 24" overall fixed power - about 25" variable
Normal Barnes Build
Quality. Bolt action single feed. This one had power adjust. Single
fixed power is standard.
This one features
a Stainless Steel Shroud and Reservoir/Frame - thus the SS designation.
Quick fill at front with integral fill valve is standard. Front
barrel clamp is optional as it's not needed on the open barrel
versions. Open barrel versions would also be about 5" shorter
overall (but that effects air storage as I make most reservoirs
full length for max. air storage).
This unit featured
the color laminated stock as well.
The Billet Machined
Aluminum parts are standard.
are plus $50 pistol - plus $100 carbine. It's alot of extra work.
Why bother? Well over half of my customers are left handed - if
you ever resell the pc., you'll have built in equity there ...
it would be easy to assume your buyer may be left handed. In addition,
at the range or home, your buddy may need the feature.
Self Guard and Brass
Trigger standard. This one was two stage - single stage standard.
The pistol shown fits
perfectly into a Paintball gun soft case. So - that gives you
the size idea (24-25"). And, remember - you are talking a
stout PCP rifle power range here in a very compact package. As
shown, this action shoots approx. 63 fpe with standard single
O buckshot 50 grain ball and about 71+ fpe with Barnes custom
The ball go about 750
fps and give about 8 shots. A really light Barnes custom slug
will give about 55 fpe - about 860 fps - and maybe 8 shots, and
(with power adjust) about 26 fpe and 24 shots. The heavy Barnes
Slugs (71 grain, etc.) will go about 670+ fps and give about 6
shots. Designed to use approx. the 2,500 psi fill range to make
your tank fills last longer. (No ... making it fill to 3,500 psi
would not give more power or more shots ... it's a very long story
- trust me).
This is about the most
versatile model I make. With the proper options and slugs, you
can take it from garage to field. It does not have to hang on
the wall waiting for that perfect

Please note - this
is THE SAME action as shown in the pistol stock above. (also -
you can clearly see what a mahogany pistol stock would look like
from these pics).
The Carbine comes
out to 36" overall length. This is the SSC
Stocks shown are
ambidextrous (right or left handed equally comfortable). Single
Right or left handed is standard for the base price.
This one is the

Stocks are in a
fine dense Mahogany with nice grain and color ...
Grips are "Pebbled"
for a nice feeling texture and eye contrast.

This is a Barnes custom

Sort of has those
Go ahead ...
So many ask me: how
do I do this stuff? Your attention span must seriously be almost
without limit, or you cannot run dozens of long term projects
at once and retain any ability to function. Maybe it's genetic
- I'm certain it cannot be taught ....
.... nobody would have
the patience to learn it ...
Anyway ... 10% down
on these and divided the remainder by the standard 36 month term.
If we can beat that, we will. You figure what you will spend per
day on such a project, and I'll guarantee that you can easily
spend more on coffee money per day at work. I think it's less
