Well since I have most of my internal upgrades on their way it is time to start the hunt for a stock to start cutting up.

This is what I'm hoping to achieve when all is said and done.

Looks familiar?? :-/

Except mine was a CA M24
Well Dad Gum great minds think alike..... ;)

I plan on CnC'ing a lot of the parts the only thing I don't plan on making is the pistol grip.....

Did you have to reinforce the body?

That was the original one I was looking at but I have since found one for $12 and my plan is to have a reinforcement rod run down it and fill in with epoxy so $75 is kind of high.

The $12 one

I'm also looking at a few design changes since I have access to someone that can CnC parts for me and I'm thinking of making my own wood stock like I saw on another thread in this forum...

Which by the way is awesome work... http://www.airsoftsniperforum.com/phpBB/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=963&start=0

Yes, however elements grips have been known for being crap, not digging on your choice I am just saying that king arms is a way more respected brand and as I am (hope to dear god) sure you know what is cheap is not always right. And for the stock I am not sure that wood is the way to go on this one, you should check out a magpul pts stock instead.

P.S. And Vindi is that a CA m24 modded into an SR-2 body perchance??? ;)

95% of this gun is gonna be custom work or as in the case of the pistol grip highly reinforced. The whole process is to make something unique not a conglomeration of parts. I'm working on a new design that may do away with the pistol grip altogether hence why wood has come into play. Another thought process is to build the mock up stock from wood then get it machined from a solid block of ABS with aluminum parts for the working and connection points.

I still need to find a VSR or BAR-10 stock to start my work up from.

Thanks for all the input and the more the merrier because with every little bit of input it comes closer to a working idea... ;)

Nope, my main trade is Cabinet Maker/ Carpenter, so I made it out of timber to my own design.

That pic is close to 7 years old now, I got shot of the rifle just after I bought the VSR, but in its original stock and kept this one with the intention of putting the visser into it, that didn't pan out so several stock changes later I now have a VSR Gspec in a CA M24 stock, what goes around comes around I suppose..... lifes a funny old game ;)

Ah...
Could be a fun project though, but it's all thought and speculation until I get some green

Should get some this summer though so I can try that out (or the other thousands of projects inside my head).
