Wood stock info

Just invested in a VM68, never had a paintball gun weigh this much lol.

Anyhoo Im wanting to make a wood stock for it.
Anyone have suggestions on how to attach stock, patterns for the stock and lastly does anyone have pictures of their VM with a wood stock on it?

In the old days, L-stocks, and Tommy-stocks attached directly to the rear plugs.

In the case of the L-stocks, the rear plugs had threaded holes that you could use to attach the L-stock. Normally, the threads were on the inside, so you had to reverse the plugs if you wanted to use a stock.

With the tommy-stock, It came with a built-in replacement for the lower plug. Same idea with the rear-asa.

The obvious problem is that neither the VM Tommy stock, or VM L-stock are common today. So, you have to either fabricate one, or take an alternate route, and use a grip stock.

For that, you either need to get a bottomline adapter for the lonestar, then attach a typical L/T stock that way. Or get a 45-grip, and use a L/T stock.

Or, you could actually add a bottomline ASA, then use a gas-thru T-stock. Or, if you had a rear-ASA, you could attach a gas-thru that way. (even though you may not actually have gas going through. They are still nice stocks).

If you want to fabricate a tommy or L-stock, wouldnt be that hard. For the Tommy stock, you can buy surplus Thompson machine gun stocks for $5 or so. I have a pile somewhere in the basement. The adapter is the tricky part, but you could do it with a simply L-bracket. For the L-stock, you could take some bar-stock from the Home-Depot, and bend it in a vice.

I really like the VM stocks that replaced the Lonestar grips, and attached onto the m16 mounting
