New VSR and L96 chasis thoughts?

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.
Hahaha. I was just talking to him about that idea. I will forward what he said to you.
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 would, but as I have said before, I don't have the means to build it. Not all of us have a 1337 cad/cam program and a nice CNC machine.
I didn't even think about taking it to a machine shop. I am just a fan of having every thing "in house". But unless I some how get $20K, I am not going to be able to.
I was talking about full size CNC machines. Not just a lathe.
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.
I was thinking something more like this.

I know my capabilities will be limited, but I don't plan on anything super large, or complicated. Maybe I will just save up and get a small benchtop mill. God it sucks not being rich. :-/
Dam, I guess I know what I will be doing over the next few days.
Thanks tarmageddon, I will have to check that out. Right now I am in the precess of making a rough idea on a full size piece of paper so I can get the actual dimensions. I already have changed things 4 times. I will take a pic of it once I finish the 1st draft. I wanted to do it on paper first so I wouldn't spend an hour making a small area, then have to delete it. I am just going to go to CAD after a few revisions.
