Another Breech for a Crosman. Part 5

The aluminum breech went together without any real problems--that alone left me filled with wonder and amazement.  Gonna shoot it for a while before deciding what to do with the shroud.  The blank aluminum tube seems to beckon for some kind of adornment.  Sprayed the grips with a couple coats of truck bed liner.  I actually made a pair of wood grips, but I didn't think they fit with the black and silver colors.  The Tasco ProPoint dot carries the color theme.  Shoots great, but I have a feeling that this will be one of those project guns that evolves every couple months and is never truly finished.  I already miss not having a bolt hold open.  Next time it's apart, the loading bolt is getting a rare earth magnet.

May throw together a short post showing those aforementioned grips if there is any interest.

Thanks for reading.  Check back in a few days for more.
