    BSA Airsporter S Stock for sale.

    BSA stock for the Airsporter S version.I'm told its Walnut & can believe it as there is some really nice (tiger stripe) figuring to it.Chequering to the pistol grip & forstock,rubber butt pad & rear sling swivel fitted.Nice (used) overall condition & could go straight on or it would really look exceptional if someone refinished it and brought out the grain more....

    I can Email pics if Req. & answer any questions via PM's...55 posted.(uk)

    S Stock

    Nice seeing you again Chris

    The stock fits my action perfectly. Very pleased with it.

    I will probably refinish it, as suggested, as there is some nice figuring to the walnut that should come up well with a bit of elbow grease, a wax and polish.

    S Stock refinish

    Hi Chris
    The refinished stock came up very well. I removed all the old finish, stained it American walnut and then just polished it up on the drill press, with just a little wax finish to the wood
    Some very nice markings/tiger striping shows up and I have added a bit of bling to this one (against the collectors code) but it looks and shoots well (although a bit pellet fussy)

    Lovely looking rifle there John, and I love the polished alloy bling . On the subject of the polished alloy bling, a 2mm thick polished alloy spacer between the recoil pad and stock would set it off a treat imo, and make it look even sexier (only a thought -- maybe I should get out more ). Ha ha. Atb m8: G.

    hi Gareth
    I must agree, but unfortunately I have glued on the butt plate for life


    I do wonder though, why BSA never fitted the white spacers between wood and rubber on the Airsporter that HW, FWB and Original rifles were often fitted with.

    I think the polished alloy is just a phase I am going through, out will come the black enamel in a week or so. (keeps me out of trouble)
