Old School "Huntsman"
This is a Daystate Huntsman .177 with the once famous Airstream mod. Refinished the original stock and added a couple Ebony bits to sharpen it up.
Pardon the wacky scope knob.
Is that one of those Ray Appelles knobs?
Nope, It's Delrin I cut on a wood lathe. Just an ugly blue color.
VERY NICE GUN! I bet it is extremely pellet friendly too (those old school LW barrels).
That looks like a Swift or Bushnell (Korea) scope. Does it track well repeatably with that
custom FT elevation knob?
Bushnell Korea, clear picture, not so great tracking or ranging. When I bought the gun, mid 90's, It was allot of money. The scope was the budget piece.
god' does life get any better that that??? Keeeeper""""
Nice work chipgibbs. I love the old huntsman's. I had one, and the newer versions also. Daystate rules!!
I too like adding decorative grip and forearm caps to some of my stocks.
Just refinished, and added rosewood caps to my Kalibrgun mini carbine. I didn't like the mud colored stain the factory used. I gave it a lighter walnut stain with just a hint of reddish tint.
I'll post some pics when it's complete, with custom checkering added.
Thanks for sharing
