3D printed tank rings for stocks?

If there's enough interest generated, I think someone with 3D printing capabilities could whip something up pretty easily. To work with T/L stocks and probably be sized for 13ci and similar.

Great idea. I'm usually hesitant to print nylon because it isn't rigid enough for most applications - but the impact resistance and durability is unmatched and would be perfect for a simple part like this.

Don't know if I can do it personally... Don't have a stock to measure. Does the diameter taper along its length? Also, keeping it from swivelling might be a trick.

You could always tap a small set screw into the collar of the nylon that goes around the stock. That way you could get it to hold in place. If people are worried about the screw marring into the Anno you can put a small wrap of rubber around the inside of the collar that would get compressed down by the set screw as well and cause a little extra friction to prevent sliding.

Would a nylon set screw not have the proper tolerance to hold into place? That would prevent marring, but may not have the right hold. Or maybe it could?

I’m just thinking a nylon set screw might not have enough of a bite for the weight of a tank and the small surface area of a stock.

True, true. A rubber ring like you mentioned would be a good idea. Or just some electrical tape

Ok that's weird I was just thinking along the same lines yesterday for something to mount a 17ci to the breech in a configuration similar to the FN303
There's some kind of tensioner strap thingy () if anyone knows what it is and how to procure something similar I wonder if you could print a kit that would accept one of those to make a secure yet easily releasable...grabby part...:P

Borrowed this image from eBay, not a bad DIY tank ring I'd say.
