That is the best one yet. All you need to do now is have a mold made and mass produce it….lolSeptember 7, 2007 at 4:12 am #24011
I dunno about “mass” production, but I have actually made two of these in the last couple weeks since my last showing. I am trying to make at least one a week and I think that is doable providing I don’t change the design much from piece to piece. This one was designed as a longer stocked version so a bipod can be mounted on the fore end rather than the lower rail.September 7, 2007 at 5:32 am #24013AnonymousInactive
I have never been a fan of the home made wooden grips. To me, they look out of place, cumbersome, unappealing, and take away from the black tactical look of these guns. Kinda like puttin’ tits on a bull.
I must say that your design and workmanship is just AWESOME! It looks comfortable and retains the tactical look that I like. It appears to be sleek and lightweight. You have crafted something to be very proud of.

Dan that is some quality work right there! Nicely done 😀 Flows really well and keeps that “tactical” feel to the rifle as DH said…must resist temptation…must resist… 😆 😆September 7, 2007 at 12:48 pm #24028rabbitsParticipant
DanoInTx mate as i,ve said to u before i love the full stock design u have done it,s a must for me to one day try one but for now i will sit back and admire your,s 😀September 7, 2007 at 10:35 pm #24048
Thanks again guys, I am happy to see positive feedback…makes trudging away in my hot garage after work worth it. So much easier to hit the recliner after a long day of work than to go out in the garage that is usually still boiling hot from the days weather. Will definately be making more of these, most likely the “long” stock version like I made here.

I say ditch that sheet metal trigger guard and do it Rapid style. Black looks good 8)September 8, 2007 at 2:34 pm #24065yParticipant
Do you do other guns, Crosmans etc ?
I need a nice stock for my 2289.September 13, 2007 at 1:34 am #24313
Nope don’t do Crosmans anymore, and have only done one Crosman stock with alot of help. I have made a few Crosman grips though. Not too interested in making more right now….maybe some day if I build another Crosman and need something to put on it:)
Here’s some updated pics of the pistol stock. Stupid summer cold has been kicking my butt off and on for a couple weeks now, hopefully I’ll get going on a few more within a couple days.
These are pics of the same gun/stock after final fitting and with the buttplate installed. It really changes the way the gun feels having the gun not slide down on your shoulder. Thanks for looking,

Very nice! Dan ,is that wood? Thanks,tzSeptember 13, 2007 at 10:11 pm #24375
Yup, it’s Poplar coated with rubberized bedliner coating. Very stable wood and nice to work with, but it has a very boring figure, so it’s not really worth finishing as a natural wood. It does look like a synthetic stock though.

Dano you are the man,
Your work really impresses me and that is not easy to do. True craftsmanship throughout
I have done a lot of wood work in my day with stocks and grips and the fact is you have it down pat. I would never dream of giving you advice because you shit don’t stink.
The use of poplar is perfect for the application and the bedliner really seals the deal in its look.
Keep up the good work.September 17, 2007 at 3:04 am #24537beautiful1invaParticipant
will you make any of the long stocks to sell?
