Jim Gaska's Yellow forum shroud extender works with the P-rod. and forum users report liking it after receiving it.
newest model with baffles complete:

More from talonairguns.com on two Gaska Marauder pistol upgrades
http://talonairgun.com/forum/viewtopic. ... 8982c886b8
1. screw-in butt stock adapter for the P-rod. It has a hex bolt inside that screws into the back of the P-rod breech. Handy and easy. He designed enough set back to permit the bolt to travel full length for cocking. The butt stock, folding or collapsible, is a Tippman 98 style, and fits into Jim's mod and held tight with three grub screws. A brainless update for the user. (Must be qualified with hex wrenches!) He only charges $35 each for these.
2. shroud extender for the P-rod. This pistol is loud, especially if you upgrade the transfer port to a larger diameter. Two ways to deal with this is add shroud length, perhaps some baffles and/or drill some tiny relief ports near the breech, or Jim sells them to accept screw on and screw in devices at the muzzle. The mini-can shown is not much more than an expansion chamber with a couple small relief holes drilled at the rear. Makes a considerable difference in noise. I personally believe four to six tiny relief holes in the existing shroud, near the breech, say 1/64th" in diameter, could accomplish the same thing, especially if you extended the shroud another six or so inches.
Jim is only charging $12.00 each for these extensions and they screw directly into the Crosman shroud. If you desire, he can put a male or female threaded end on the tip for your personal attachments. The thread fit is perfect!

You can get the Tippman 98 stock on Amazon from a number of different sellers for $17.30. Get the Shroud extender with baffles and P-Rod to tippman 98 adapter from Jim ($28.00 & $35.00 shipped) and you'll be good to go.
