Seems everyone likes stocks but there really are none. Many people have more than one gun. A multi-chassis stock would be cool.

Well to be honest they are pretty darn easy to make. So I had a thought. I could make a new chassis that is gun agnostic. That is, you could use it for either VSR10 or L96 by swapping in and out some fabricated components that bolt in. Probably a square tube setup like Smokeys but probably with side plates like RH does. That is the simplest to do which keeps price down. With the commercial AR15 butt stock and a gaudy grip people tend to gobble it up. The work is making it gun agnostic which could be cool.

I don't know how much would people pay for a new stock like that that had CNC'ed bits to swap out that was super rigid and was strong enough to be used for a real steel gun?

Maybe a project for next year. Maybe not. Either way I am interested in hearing options on the subject.

I am really partial to the EGW.

If you made a chassis system that had a retractable stock, and it was fairly light weight, you could open up a whole new relm for airsoft scout rifles. Especially if you had a wrap around top rail forward of the "chamber". Yeah, I am interested.

on a side note, I am extremely jealous of you. I would love to have the capabilities you have. I would make so much cool stuff.

Yes, yes we do. Any ways, the more I think about this idea, the more exited I get for it. I envision a bolt action EBR of sorts. With a different, more rigid stock on it, but with the same for end for the most part. Have it so the upper rail is held on with 6 countersunk screws, so if you didn't want the forward rail it was removable without taking away the strength on the chassis.

God dam you Beck. You make my mind go crazy with ideas.

I understand. I was not trying to be a jerk, just trying to help you out and motivate you. Look, here is how you do it.

First you need CAD. Viacad costs $90 and takes a few days to learn but you get better with time obviously. Check it out, SUPER easy for CAD and CAD is notoriously horrible to use. That is good stuff that is so cheap it boggles the mind. It has a ton of tutorials as well.

Then you need some stuff machined. You can have any shop in your local area do the work. Here I ran a quick search in Seattle area.

Heck, send me the plans, I know a guy 82 years old with a full machine shop looking for stuff to do. I'll get you a quote.

Metal from here.

Plan it out, draw it out, take your time. may take a few months. Heck I bet you need stuff to kill time anyhow, right?

Easy.

I've been thinking about this too... but that cad program isn't too cheap... but not as much as others. AutoCAD a building software runs $1,000 for a single license. How much would it run to manufacture a cylinder or something?

Very good lathe for the price. $1349.95.

I can do everything I need on this for $700..

Here is a nice CNC one, it is on my list. They make their paint ball gun parts on it.

All those big 20K ones are industrial. For prototyping anything above will work, even for small production they will work. No doubt. I see shops running banks of sherline mills for production.

Anyhow my whole point is if people really want to make something.... you can.

Hahaha. I just was looking through the metal place you posted. It would cost $140(ish) for the correct length and thickness. That would get very spendy in the prototype phase. All in due time I guess. I am planing on buying a multi axis vise for drill presses, and get a set of milling bits, so I can at least make small, not to complicated pieces. It is far from true milling capable though.
