    air arms firepower

    I have recently aquired an old air arms sidelever air rifle which i am told is called a fire power.It has the black abs type stock and looks bit like a the old slr the british army used.The gun itself fires well and seems genrally good .however the stock is a bit john ramboish as it has a dummy mag etc, which isn`t really me .Can the stock be changed for something more traditional and also more to the point is it worth doing in the first place as budget is tight.Also there is a tube to load pellets into a loading tap on the gun this is`nt attached and i haven`t sussed it out yet any ideas!

    the tube clicks into the a little braket in front of the loading tap and further along the barrel,the end of the curved bit fits above the tap,
    theres a hole in the side that one of those plastic bits (that hopefully are on the gun) fitts into (alowing a pellet to fall into the tap)

    im shure someone will be along in a mo with pics

    JASON..
    lots of takedowns
