    Broke out my Super X1 the other day and decided to rebuild the old girl for a fun gun. In the past I have seen some pretty nice synthetic stocks and some nice carbon fiber setups but can't find out who made them (anyone know).

    I'm not adverst to wood but do want something with an adjustible comb. Also any suggestins on a good place for a chrome gas tube and other parts would be appreciated.
    I'm in Florida if there is a recommendation for a expert Super X1 guy please let me know.

    Had this gun since I was a kid shooter in the 70's and don't ever plan to part with her

    Thanks

    Apparently, the top SX-1 guy these days is Stu Wright (link to his web site is above). Bill Malcolm

    I've propably shot a Super-X more than most here.

    I have used a rust resistant gas system from Nu-Line guns since the early 80's. Forget the chrome tube and buy Nu-Line's stainless steel tube and rust resistant gas system. I think they have all the other parts you might be looking for, check their web site for more info.

    As far as a stock goes, I have never heard of a synthetic stock for these guns. I would have an adjustable comb made from your wood stock and then have the stock and forend coated with whatever look you want. I have recently had a 20 guage Berreta 391 coated by Frank Teichman in Phoenix, it looks like carbon fiber. He has many colors and textures you can chose from. I'm sure there are others that perform this service as well.

    I have been rebuilding and restoring SX-1's for 30 years now and have a complete supply of parts available for these guns. I have never seen a synthetic stock for a SX-1. My shop does in-house bluing, refinishing, custom stocks and checkering, as well as general repair. Please contact me if I can be of service.

    You were looking at stocks that had been wrapped in a skin. They "Looked" like carbon fibre buy they were not. There has never been a snthetic stock made for a sx-1. I looked into having one done. They can produce the first one for about 25,000. 12.00 each after that! chuckles who has a post on trapshooters as we speak was the guy who posted the pictures you saw of the carbon fibre looking gun stocks. the company did all kinds of skins including stuff that looked like grade 6 wood. Turned out the outfit was not really easy to do business with. Jeff

    +1 on the stainless versus chromed mag tube. You can also get hard chromed gas pistons and rings which I highly recommend if you are doing a complete rebuild.

    You have already recieved pointers to the three main SX-1 gunsmiths that I know of, Wrights, Ernest Marlette, and Steve Fischer who posted above and is located local to you in Fla.

    I have personally done business with Ernest on a SX-1 and find him to be an excellent gunsmith, a perfectionist at his craft, and an extremely honest and ethical person.

    The below gun (seen by posters on this BBS until they want to puke LOL) had the gunsmithing, metal polishing, and bluing done by Ernest.

    That is my favorite SX-1 on the planet. I have seen some of the nicest over the years. That is my favorite. The bible says not to covet thy neighbors possessions.I am 100% guilty as it pertains to the Sx-1 above. Jeff
