I see the flattened ends. Your request? That makes disassembly/assembly easier. Mine were made from specs of an older model. Standard tension.

If you're getting any accuracy at 65 yards, it may be time to construct a scope mount. Hmmmm. Another project?

It's interesting. My brother and I have shooting contests. I'm shooting my D 717 and he's on his 95.
We're shooting sidewalk chalk at about 50 feet. I know I've got a target pistol but it is a pistol. He and I hit chalk near every shot. Wish I could find a bb gun like that!

BTW if anyone is looking for a wood stock to go on a Daisy 8xx gun, there is one on ebay right now along with a plastic 880 stock.

Is that a wood #25 stock in with it? Perhaps from a Centennial with the disk missing? But does not seem to be walnut.

Yes, closed and square ground ends were specified. "Accuracy at 65 yards" would be a misnomer- more like one hit per 6-8 shots! I should have stated that before because it's not in any way a sure thing. What IS significant is that the gun has enough elevation adjustment to make the shot using a proper sight picture with the increased MV.

Is there a place on a metal receiver assembly from a plastic stocked gun to screw in the attachment bolt?

Are you asking how the wood stock is attached to the receiver frame? If so, as I see that pic, the 1/8" sheet steel plate that holds the stock in the frame is missing and that long attachment bolt may be missing as well. I was lucky enough to have picked up two complete sets of wood stocks/forearms for the 880 off ebay a couple years back. One is on my 822 and the other set is long gone. Both are easy fixes for the likes of you Mark. Tongue The wood stock is designed to go right on the basic 880 frame.

Yeah, I've not seen how the wood stock is attached. I'll do some looking around, but I'm guessing the plate is held in by the same large screw that would have held the plastic stock.

The plate is just a flat piece of 1/8" steel with a 1/4x20 threaded hole in the center. The there is a long 1/4x20 bolt that goes in that big hole on the end of the stock and screws into the plate. The plate sits flush to the end of the stock that interfaces with the receiver halves. You loosen up the plate/stock bolt a bit and tighten the receiver halves over the plate. Then you tighten the big bolt. Frankly I thought it was a chincy set up but it has worked fine on mine for several years.
