    For about 6 months I've been looking for an early HW77 in .177, preferably with a custom stock with upright pistol grip.

    Finally stumbled on this one, so had to have it. Question is, does anyone recognise the stock, or is it a DIY job?

    You've hit the jackpot. It looks like a lightly fiddled Venom Trophy stock. Pistol grip cap not original, nor is hamster.

    Hamster is, I think, the palm rest from a 1980s Anschutz 3p adjustable fore end gadget.

    Nice. Never seen a venom trophy stock so had no idea what they looked like.
    The silencer has a venom sticker on but the internals are standard 25mm weihrauch.
    Action is 1985
    Yes the hamster is anschutz
