I have had this Crosman 1377 air pistol for quite a few years, and never liked the stock plastic grips and forend that came with it. So I recently whipped up a set of walnut ones. Sure looks a lot better and feels better too.

The standard cheesy plastic ones.

The inletting for the forend is probably the trickiest part. It has to fit tightly and is pinned to the pump lever.

OC that is awesome!!!! That changed the entire look of the 1377. I have one and must admit that the plastic is not its strong point. Boy did that turn out beautiful. You always impress me with your work. ::nod:: ::tu:: ::handshake::

Very nice, OLDE CUTLER!
I found one of those Crosman air pistols at the dump many years ago. Took it back to the maintenance shop and put in a new O ring and pumped her up. The sights weren’t much but fun to mess with. We’d all go to jail today for stunts like that on school property. ::facepalm::

Thanks for the comments on the grips. I bought a couple of airguns a few years back when rimfire ammo was hard to get and expensive. They will make just as good a hole in paper targets as a 22lr will. The Crosman 1377 shoots better than the "jerk behind the trigger" can. Like the 10/22 Ruger, there is a lot of accessories available for the 1377. Mine still has the plastic breech, I would like to upgrade it to a steel breech and better sights.

OLDE CUTLER,
I dug around and found my old Crosman, it too is a model 1377. In script on the right side it says "American Classic" and there is a serial number on the left side. The frame appears to be made of some kind of pot metal, lots of the black finish is missing around the trigger guard. Yours appears to be much more refined than this refugee from the county dump 30 years ago. I'll have to clean it up and run a BB through it. :)

Just figured how to date this things, first 3 or 4 number indicate the month and year of mfg. Mine starts with 1079XXXXX, October, 1979. :)

It has been a little cooler here the past few days, so I got out into the garage and did some pen turning.

That's very nice! I've never seen one like that.
I whittled out a simple fish looking lure for decoration. Think I'll do a few more in different colors and maybe add a trebble hook to a few.

OC, typical of your very fine work. Always exceptional!!!! ::nod:: ::tu:: ::handshake::
Doug, I had a friend in Ohio many years ago that whittled his lures and used them. Yours looks great and the paint job as well. ::nod:: ::tu:: ::handshake::
