That's a sweet looking carbine and a good video. You should be able to get her an eye patch at any drug store.

I found both 3/4" and 1" aluminum risers made by UTG on Amazon. The 3/4" is a two-piece set with each about two inches long, and the 1" is a single piece about six inches long.


Great looking rifle!!

I expect it will come in the disease form, though. I'm susceptible to diseases, and you can't shoot a damned disease." ~ Judge Roy Bean, Streets of Laredo

For the Patriots of this country, the Constitution is second only to the Bible for most. For those who love this country, but do not share my personal beliefs, it is their Bible. To them nothing comes before the Constitution of these United States of America. For this we are all labeled potential terrorists. ~ Dean Garrison

Jumbo:  She wants a pirate eye patch, though.

Peg, thanks for the lead...I was looking around at risers but it was actually working for her as-is, so I'm going to hold off till she shoots it more and see what's what.

Wow. I wonder though, what else they're going to do. Most of the weight is in the barrel.

I would have to see how that feels before I bought it. I don't think I would like it.

Yeah, me either.  But  it's not for me... 

I like the UTG pro model...it's slim and affordable.
