Very cool looking. If you could design it to fit the under mount kits instead of a Havoc with most of the parts of a rifle kit I would bet you could sell a handful of them.

@The Flounder : Damn I guess the pistol grip mount is already part of the rifle set huh? I will make a variation that will fit the underbarrel kit. Thanks for the feedback.

What do you guys think about this look? I'm toying with the idea of adding more body/furniture to the front..





Versus the old concept :

Under barrel version test. The rifle version is secure with only 1 bolt in the trigger frame area, unfortunately the underbarrel has no hole in the trigger frame. I can use the 1 bolt on the back, but it's high up, so a 2nd bolt will need to be drilled into the trigger frame for extra support, or just hot glue or something.

I'm on the last prototypes, will probably do a final solid fill version as next.

Finally got around to printing a more solid version and getting all the hardware to bolt it on. Just gotta find a macro-line fitting now.

There is a blemish on the grip because I tried a new printing orientation and supports might have gave.

Takes way too long to print, 20h for the grip HALF. Gotta try and optimize the mesh more.

Man that is awesome! And a holder for a 12 gram as well ingenious. I guarantee you could make some money off it.

Thanks m8, will put it out there once I iron out all the kinks (maybe a non-air-thru version much sooner). I am unable to actually manufacture the 12g adapter though, since I can't find a cheap source for 12g piercing-pins (that seem so standard yet so illusive). I wouldn't want to make another zombie mish-mash of parts it's way to expensive and looks a bit rough, not mass reproducible.

So it's kind of difficult to say if other peoples 12g adaptors will fit. I assume they are all 1" dia. but some might be longer.

Got the macro-line to fit in (had to melt out the slot lol), but the angle on the line is a bit jarring, it might burst or leak when I go to test, we'll see.

So next update will likely have a 1" longer back end, altered geometry around macro line, and I will also probably imprint the "skeleton" on to the other blank side, but still not make it see-thru for strength, or maybe I'll just make it seethru, I donno.

Well it looks gorgeous! You wouldn't know all those flaws you mentioned by looking at it. I see a few of them now that you mention it though. I really like the design though, purty!

I hate to keep teasing and posting the same thing kinda, but I'm very slow to make progress :/

Printed a top rail, snugly screwed on, and a grip and side rail (double-sided taped on for now).





Right now I'm printing a longer back-half, 1.5" longer to give better macroline clearance, and to test the feel of a longer stock, and that one is also fully see-thru.

Also the fore-grip unfortunately obstructs the break-loading, going to have to use an angled-grip instead.
