Teufel-hunden Posted January 22, 2008 Share Posted January 22, 2008 I bet that title woke some people up! The more I study it, the more confident I am that I can build a coll. stock out of aluminum. It would not be easy or quick, but it is doable. It would have similar lines to the factory stock and function the same but with a few enhancements, they are listed below- Simms recoil pad Active recoil reduction system (would add weight and complexity to the build but would probably be worth it.) Adjustable cheek piece (not sure about this one, I will have to shoot my M4 with the factory coll. stock to see if the extra time/trouble would be worth it.) Built in shell holders. (Think MESA) And possibly some kind of quick change provision to go from different types of stocks more easily. It would be slightly heavier than the factory model but would be another imported part reducer for the 922 crowd. Just curious as to what price they would bring. The lowest price I am thinking would be $500- the current street price for a factory piece. But how much more than that would you guys and gals pay? $750?.... $1,000? Alas, unless I win the lottery and can quit my job, I would not have a lot of time to work on them. So it may be just the one I build for myself- The Hellish Hound "The most deadly weapon known to man is the human brain" Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
