This is the breech area of a Crosman Titan GP. Does anyone know what those recesses in the stock are for? It seems to me that this is the thinnest (i.e. weakest) area of the stock, and could be filled in to make it stronger. Any ideas?

If it had iron sights that is mortised in to be able to cock it without disturbing the sights. Apparently they had planned it then changed their mind.

Or the same stock is used on several models, some with open sights. That makes sense.

That was my thought...one stock fits many models.

Very Happy

Fill it in? I say cut the end off; it will look better. Many fine sporters have stocks that are shorter than those that extend to the end of the breech block.

I've been away from the Forum(my emphasis) for a while. Slavia, when did you get this rifle? What are the specs and claimed performance figures? I'm glad Mrs. Slavia authorized this purchase--Ha! We both know she hasn't got a clue...

I think it must belong to a ....friend. Yes, that's it. The same friend that was thinking of doing this with the stock:

Nice. A thumbhole stock and a gas piston. It should be a smooth shooter.

Very nice project slavia. I definitely agree

I would definitely lean toward the maple for the detail for the higher bond strength. poplar will pull apart fairly easily.

I have about 100 different veneers I could send to you for a stamp if your heart fancies something exotic. Three layers of laminated veneer gives a nice detail stripe.

That's good to know. I was leaning towards the maple anyway because it's so dense and hard that it would absorb less stain - preserving the contrast of the detail line.

Now there's something to think about. Thanks for the suggestion.
