Then you missed a pic. :-p

Please take some pics in the rough stages, maybe with some method pics if you wouldn't mind sharing. The finished project pics are always money; but I love me some in-process pictures!!! I'm uber curious to see the dovetail joint come together. Great work thus far!!!

I haven't cut it out of the wood yet, I'm bot that fast, just out of the card.

I'll try get more making pics, my dad helped with the adapter as I'm not incredibly good with tools.

For the adapter we cut and planed to the correct height and width, then we cut the cylinder bits down to size on the lathe, cut to length, then checked fit and drilled and tapped the hole for the stock screw.

The plan is for all the mods to be external so that I can put it back to stock in the future if I want.

Love to see the replies, make it worth while.

Cheers

So started work on the stock last nite.

First we found a beat up old piece of swamp rimu that was just shy of the the width of the adapter, and we traced around my stock cutout.




We then cut out the shape on the ban saw, including a raised bit for the dovetail joint.



We then rounded out any rough edges on the belt sander



We then marked and cut the dovetail joint with a miter saw



We then drilled and recessed the hole in the bottom of the stock for the screws and attached the stock to the adapter.



We then rough shaped the stock edges on the belt sander



This is it now




From the bottom showing the recessed screws



And the dovetail from the front and back




So now I am going to file it to shape and the sand with increasingly finer grade sandpaper, and then wax.

This is it on the gun so far.



Cheers

So finished the stock yesterday.

I first sanded it to shape with an oscillating sander and then sanded it with finer and finer grit paper until smooth.




Then I polished it with a coat of beeswax wood finish.




Half way done. Just fore-grip and the metal piece to go.

So I'm nearly finished. Hope to finish off today.

Did this through the week, haven't been able to upload photos till today tho, so here goes.

Made the foregrip out of the same piece of swamp rimu.

I cut it to the correct width and depth and made it longer than i had planned so that I could check the look against the gun before i cut it to length.


We then used a router, upside down in a vice to make the barrel indent, we clamped a longer larger piece of wood to use as a guide.




we the used a makeshift dremel to shape out the areas closest to the gun body so that it would fit snuggly against it



The Finished foregrip
