The materials used in the construction of a Badger is exactly the same as all of XP-Airguns products. The barrel is 4130 chrome-moly steel, rifling is to our specifications ( these are not modified firearm barrels). The air tube is 4130 chrome-moly steel. All fasteners are graded, high strength. The price is set lower than other XP-Airguns for several reasons, we only build the actions one way. Badgers are all Sniper Gray Cerakote. (Cerakote is a baked on, ceramic filled, epoxy finish) We use a modified QB78 trigger assembly. You can choose between 2 different styles of stocks, but no other wood options are offered by us.
The XP Badger 40 comes standard with either the "Pro Classic" or "Tactical" stock. (See below. To view full picture, click thumbnail) Both stocks are 3-ply Poplar with a Hard Maple center to keep it stiff but light. The handles are pinned with a 4-1/2” special screw for added support and makes it rock solid. The stocks are coated with an epoxy bed liner with three initial coats, then a sand down to a smooth surface with no flaws. A final three coats are added to the stock with fine steel wool sand to final finish. The inlet has a spray-in rubber liner to help bed the airgun in place and keep it from shifting once in place.
Both stocks come standard with a 4” Picatinny Accessory Rail, 2 Sling Studs and a soft recoil pad. The stocks are 99% waterproof. There is a Lifetime Warranty for the original purchaser. These stocks are made for us by Mad Dog Custom Rifle Stocks, LLC. maddogriflestocks.net
