Last I checked, Pomona Airguns was still doing it. The barrel I worked with in that regard didn't have quite as pronounced a choke as it did from the factory. But, it was still enough to be considered properly done.

Is Paul Watts still doing that work?  He is who I used to see recommended.

This is the only pic I have handy. The bottom gun is my Huntington Beach-era R9TK, complete with David G stock. It's a toss-up between this and one of my FWB124's for last springer I'd ever part with. 

R9TK and HW98

@harvey Yeah... that's an original stock... I love that stock too !

The other two are not, being "custom"... the original stocks were pretty plain beech short stocks--not full length like the R1.
