I didn't like the Air-Rifle so much as it was, so I decided some re-tooling was in order.
I installed a pump-action jumbo barrel, using a deodorant clip (thanks, angel!) canted off to the right. This decreased range quite a bit because of the superlow ratio, so I added in the old PEX barrel as a secondary barrel on top, too. I used a 3/4" copper barrel, with e-tape, that seals against some dremeled 1/2" PVC inside the barrel. The barrel shroud is 1" PVC, and the pump handle is 1 1/4" PVC. This is reverse pump (forward then back), which I don't especially like, but there are worse fates.
I also fixed up the stock by adding in a 2-section butt that fits around the top barrel when folded, with the top section sticking out as a mock scope.
Next up are cosmetic fixes and a black and yellow strip-ed paintjob to match the pump and justify the name.
