Most dsg's seem to be left stock, but really they are great platforms to customize
it's hard for me to like stocks :P Which is why I like your dsg the most so far.
Let me know when you do get to your mare's leg, I might have a spare lever loop in the future.
I actually think a lever would go great with your specific choice of grip, Rogue. The way it sits, it looks like it would be so natural with a nice lever on there. I'd imagine it would be a bit more like a KL, and less like a pistol gripped lever. But either way, your creation is gorgeous. I'm anxiously awaiting pictures of the finished product.
I like Dun's lever too. Very unique, but obviously not for everyone.
UPDATE!!! 8/14/2011- Added to the first post as well for those that don't want to keep up through multiple pages...
Ok, crappy weather led to my early return from the beaches of Wildwood, so I took a couple of pics to show what's been done since my first post. I WILL have more (and better, hopefully) pics shortly but the battery on the camera went dead right as I was about to snap some shots with the short feed and a 10" barrel installed.
Wooden pump is ON! It actually works right now although I haven't glued the wood to the delrin. Still have some cuts to make to both the wood and delrin to clear the Gen 3 feed's slot and retractor before I can do that though.
Apologies for the horrid lighting situation in my apartment. It's monsoon season so there's not much daylight coming from the windows to help me out. This shows the passenger side and a line marked on the pump where I have to cut it to clear the feed.
I was doing my best to NOT cut into the checkering, but unfortunately, the only way to get the short feed to fit was to get the pump handle back as far as possible onto the original handle. That meant having to notch in for the bottom pump arm... The cut still needs to finish sanding and such but I ran out of time.
Closer shot of the area that needs to be trimmed to clear the feed.
Hacked-up delrin pump installed into the Mossberg pump.
Some of the clearancing I had to do to get the hacked pump to fit. It might not look like a lot but this was some very time consuming trial and error. PITA I say...
Another detail shot of the clearancing...
This is what you have to make the pump handle look like to fit inside the pump. Originally I was going to leave the part the pump arms attach to untouched and let the wood stick off the front a bit, for simplicity's sake, but sure enough that didn't work with the short feed system, so I had to butcher it even further. Also had to mill down a bit of the upper arm and re-sink the holes for the cone-head screws to get them flush.
If I hadn't milled the arm down, I'd have been cutting it way too close and making the wood pump way too thin in that spot for comfort. Thankfully the raw milled portion is hidden by the pump handle when it's installed so no exposed aluminum!
This is a really good one to demonstrate just how much had to be cut off even the back end of the pump. The lower arm doesn't have a notch to sit in at all anymore, it's just held on by the two screws.
Well that's it for now, I'll give the camera battery a while to charge and come back with more pics with the wood handle and the short feed installed with the 10" barrel.
Looks absolutely amazing, Rogue. The shorter feed absolutely makes it.
When I get my hands on another DSG, I may have to beg and plead for you to do some work on it. I just bought a Gen3 short feed and pump, so the gears are already turning.
So this has pretty much convinced me to get a dsg, just to do this to it.
Awesome. I've got a chopped stock on my DSG as well...the trigger feels more comfortable after removing some of the tang to bring its rest position rearward and adding a forward stop.
