I ended up needing a spring compressor to take a rws Diana 54 apart.  That gun is pain to work on.  Anyway, it was easy after I made this.  Guess I made it a little fancier than it needed to be, but want to be able to use it on other (or any) spring gun in the future.  The 54 had a large air tube, so I figure I will just make split bushing to fit smaller gun as needed.  The acme threaded rod and nut came off a damaged C-clamp.  I cut the threaded part of the clamp off and turned it down to a stepped bushing that I pressed into the aluminum block.  Made the tube length adjustable with quick remove push pins.  Had to make a special piece to fit aft end of the gun.  chris

The Black parts are delrin.  Figured it was the best thing to not mark up the guns.   I made to handle for the hammer out of metal so I could try out a new to me knurling tool.  It worked out pretty good I thought.  I like to do projects to force me to learn more.  Like the hammer..  I spend 5 hour on it.  Don't tell know one....lol    The big metal block was a part I had to make to fit the end piece of the diana 54.  It was made to be removable and only needed on the one gun.
