    It has a modest value, although I tend to try and buy at what I would consider 'good' prices, so not as huge as it might be.

    Little treasure of mine. Took a looooong time to convince previous owner to part with it.

    Falke Model 10 in excellent original condition.

    Okay I am only posting a couple that are truly custom here, I am not into old guns or stuff like that so the rest o my collection only have internal mods.

    First up is my first truly custom gun I built.
    It is a HW77k baught in pretty bad nick off the forum. I had it blacked, including the comp tube and my name engraved on the comp tube. A Vortek high output kit was fitted.
    Then I had a once off walnut stock made for it, it has a special place in my heart this gun.








    Okay second up......
    A HW97k silver.
    This gun was transplanted from a black tupperware KT stock into the blue laminate you see here.
    It has a Rowan extra setback trigger, oversize safety and is fully V-Glided, shooting a perfect 770ps she is just a beuty.





    Next up
    HW80. I love this classic old gun and fealt the standard stock didn't do it justice.
    So a very good friend properly stripped it, bleached it and dyed it with ebony(Black)
    You can still see the wood grain, but I think the black suits the big mean old 80 much better.
    She is a 5.5mm with just basic work done, an @airvolution slip on silencer, waiting for me to import a Vortek kit for her





    Okay last for now.
    This is a very special gun to me it is a 5.5mm 97k with a self designed and developed long stroke kit, running a vmach seal and XS spring. She develops over 16fpe and is a joy to shoot.
    I had Ulrich in George make me an exact copy of a HW stock in Bobinga wood for her, it is just amazing!

    The Bubinga stocked 97 looks good.

    As mentioned above a less cluttered background would accentuate the rifles.

    Since I don't have a lot of guns to brag with, I will show 2 of my collection that carries some degree of "customization"

    First up is a rifle that is a bit of a mixed bag.... Bought a Diana mod 36 off the forum which was in need of some help... decided to chemically strip the beechwood stock and bleached it almost white... then proceeded to dye it black with ebony stain. Personally I think it came out great. Swapped the mod 36 rifle parts with that of a Diana mod 34 bought from Kuberboef. Added Hawke scope, new seal and with it already having a high power Vortek kit installed is a really smooth shooter with a beautiful trigger






    Second rifle is my HW100 bought in 2018. She is the normal 4,5mm fac model. No fancy innards, but swapped the original "long" barrel with a 410mm from the UK. Also added a James Mitchell stock bought off Plinkerbell in March this year. Beautiful gun and a beautiful and accurate shooter,
