IT'S ME! xD

Does anyone know any place that would sell a separate Tanaka Type96 (gas rifle) stock? And those who own one, does that magazine lock system in or exclude the stock? I mean is it integrated/mounted/made to stay in the stock if it is on its own? Or would I need those holder parts separately from somewhere if I would buy a stock from somewhere? (You guys probably guess why I am looking for one.
)

I believe a Tanaka Type 98 uses the actual magwell to load the bb's in from, so if you were to use just the stock for dummy mag purposes, you'd have to carve in a perfect spot for the Maruzen style of Mags. It'd be a lot easier simply to take your Maruzen L96 stock and do what Livonia did to his (Check out the Gallery to see his L96)

Um... I think you got me a bit wrong.
I mean I'd buy a Tanaka magazine to the Tanaka stock as the dummy mag and drill a hole to the real working mag. I just wonder if that stock has the Tanaka magazine holders in it or are they separated from the stock. I'll have a closer look on those pics then.

I'm not exactly sure what you're saying here.. (Someone help?)

In any case.. A Tanaka actually uses the Mag in the right spot, so a dummy mag on a Tanaka would look dumb as all hell, but on a Maruzen you can just take an M14 mag and pretty much glue it in front of the trigger assembly and it would suffice.

If you want like a perminate hold, then take the Maruzen's stock and dremel a small "Nitch" out of the appropriate spots (Mark it with a sharpie by tracing around the dummy mag) then fill that area with an ABS Apoxy and clamp the mag in there. Then let that sit for about 20 minutes and you should have one solid dummy mag. For best results I'd reccomend letting the clamp sit overnight.

But a Tanaka already has the appropriate mag for this, so why would he want to put two mags on a weapon?

haha, wow... That'd look really dumb.
No, no. He's saying he wants to use the Tanaka stock with the Maruzen barrel, which means that it'd have the Tanaka mag as the faux mag, and he wants to drill out a mag well for the Maruzen mag, so that the rifle will function. At least, that's how I've been interpreting it.

Dutton: EXACTLY. MAruzen weapon, Tanaka Type 96 (gas rifle) stock on it, functioning maruzen mag in a drilled whole in the front and a dummy Tanaka mag in its actual whole AS THE DUMMY. Sine the Maruzen mag doesn't "show" from the weapon it would look quite neat, I think.
