Very nice looking wood for the P-Rod.  Not sure if it is my cup of tea just yet but it might grow on me.  Right now mine is still in the basic black kind of set up.

Are you thinking about indulging Mike?

Are you thinking about indulging Mike?  Im am thinking on it Carl but not sure just what wood to use. The RB rainbow laminates have been growing on me lately.

it's a super pumper fore arm and probably new inlayed grips to accommodate the new grip frames --- looks good but like carl would n't be my cup of tea for THAT gun .steve corcoran has a stock made for the marauder pistol but i dont think he's producing them yet  ???  http://www.airgunsoftexas.com/

I have a SC stock on my Marauder rifle and it s soooooo nice.  But the pistol stck he has cost about the same as the pistol. Too much for my blood right now.

The rb grips one looks just like the 1377 one they make. thats no good.... It actually makes the p-rod look like a modified 1377 which is not really a bad thing cause it still looks cool, but most people would not really want a p-rod to look like a 1377. just my opinion, still looks good though. wood's always better than plastic in most cases. LOL

J.Austin   I was thinking the same thing Josh it's just a moded 1377 pump arm,we need a better and different look for the P Rod. But it does look nice.I think i will pass on it and wait to see someone else make wood for the P Rod.

Mike,
We are assembling a duplicator starting on tuesday at my shop. as soon as it is ready, I will be making prototype forearms for several crosman guns, as well as a couple different shoulderstock designs that i've been working on. Once I get the designs perfected, I will make and offer matching (optional stippled/checkered panel) stocks grips and forearms. Then all I need to do is buy a p-rod (LOL) to fit to...

Joshua, how about something like this?  Would be a good challenge for your skills.  Let me know what you think.

That must be a corcoran stock.Wit a nice braided leather sling from levy's... I'll tell ya what, that guy's got some serious skills!! I have a couple thumbhole stock designs in the works (some regular type stocks as well.... That is a beautiful stock there. That is what people want for these guns. Something nice like that. What did that run ya If you dont mind me asking. I'd guess about 3-4 bills?? if it were made by corcoran that is. He really is a master woodworker. I hope that I can do work as nice as his one day.

I only wish that were my stock. A friend has it on his Marauder pistol and paid $395 for it.  When I was working for a living it would only have been 3 hours work to pay for it.  Now it would be half my social security check.  ;D

But not to worry, your skills are getting there.  :-*

Well I totally plan to make similar pieces, but not for 400.00 , my plan is to make ones that are affordable...the problem is: just the wood alone for that stock was likely in the neighborhood of 200.00

Well as soon as I have my shop set-up properly I'm going to give it my best effort. I have a few different designs That I've been working on for some time now, and I am totally stocked with different types of hardwoods. So here within the next 2 weeks or so I will have some shoulderstock prototypes, and the 1377 forearm/grip set design prototypes will be this week.
