Thanks! Good for you on the purchase for your grand daughter. I bet she'll be tickled pink.

I actually just sanded the stocks down with a random orbit sander and some hand sanding with a foam sanding block. Started with 120 and followed with 220. Five or six loving coats of Tru Oil and we were done.

I ordered the parts straight from Daisy (800) 643-3458. You want the Model 888 Trigger Housing (Part no. 888-13) since it has the screw hole already installed and you probably should order a spare Model 853 trigger assembly (Part no. 853-20). I also order the Model 888 screw assortment (not sure of part no), but the operator was very friendly and helpful. That way I knew I would have the trigger pull adjustment screw.

I ordered 4 sets of these things and with shipping I think it was around $25 or so. Parts arrived a few days later. Great service on great products at great prices....seems to explain Daisy's longevity.

The users manual is found at: http://daisy.com/_manuals/853_series_english.pdf

The instructions for the "pilk guns" modification are found at: http://www.pilkguns.com/tenp/default.htm

Let us know how it turns out.
