The one ,s ive seen with one piece arfter market stocks set the S200 off a whole lot better. Good skills with the slotting , looks sharp 😀February 1, 2008 at 8:32 pm #33015

Very nice. I’m super impressed with you guys that build your own. I’m actually thinking about giving it a try and building a stock for this rifle:
It’s a rimfire but I really like it even though the stock blows. It’s of Russian lineage and has the “mandatory” short LOP, and it’s too short for my tastes. Not to mention that the stock looks like a piece of stove wood.
Any tips for a first time guy. I’m not planning on a expensive piece of wood and I may just laminate some ply together. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Well done, StevenFebruary 3, 2008 at 10:39 am #33110
paul mate to be honest with u mate don,t even think about an expensive bit off wood till u know u can do the stock do a few try out,s on ply or poplar both r easy woods to work and uu have to rememeber the rimmi,s action r tottaly differant to an air rifle and the barrel section,s off the rimmi,s taper down on size .at the moment i,m doing the odd set off grips and stocks for guys i know and there paying for the wood and a wee contabution to me and i meen wee i,m not in it for the money i want to c how good i can do the stock and don,t think it,s fair that we should pay silly money for them.my rimmi stock will get done when i can afford two blanks off nice wood so if i knacker one up i have the other there but that will take a while to get there ..if u want to ask me anyhting don,t hesitate i,m here every day 😀February 5, 2008 at 2:04 pm #33267
not far away now lads . 😀 http://s193.photobucket.com/albums/z230/stevenb_011/?action=view¤t=7c3cad89.pbwFebruary 5, 2008 at 2:47 pm #33271bazParticipant
Good work mate! Nice piece of wood, I’ve been trying to find a supplier of suitable wood to make a stock, but don’t seem to be having much luck. When I have finished making this bull-pup would you be interested in making a stock for it, If I send it up to you? Not looked into the cost of having one made but if you were to give me a quote, we could sought something out.February 5, 2008 at 3:30 pm #33274blodnobParticipant
Av got an old plank you could tie to it. Probly double the value.February 5, 2008 at 4:10 pm #33276

Thanks for the offer Blodnob, by the way you are a plank.
OK rabbits, I’ll get in touch when I’ve sorted out the trigger linkage and magazine. I’m looking for something with a forward pistol grip, abit like the Ed gun [matador] but without the hook on the shoulder rest.February 5, 2008 at 6:10 pm #33280
