and order a titan stock and stop being cheap.i broke my phantom stock because im insanely smart (topic still up for discussion). anyway i had a pistol grip roughed out and installed and before i went any further shot a few shots to see how it felt. at the same time i was testing some more homemade trigger improvements. the trigger slipped and the barrel flew up. i had both hands on the barrel at the time so the stock flew up and hit me in the arm pit thus breaking it. while im disappointed in how it turned out, it was a blessing in disguise. glad it happened now instead of after i had painted it.many lessons were learned during this project. i plan on doing something else with whats lift of the stock though. see if i cant get an AR grip and collapsable stock on there before i throw it away.


i changed the way the forearm looks. it may not be the most practical but i like the way it looks.

the back half of the trigger gaurd was in the way

i cut the old pistol grip off because it was in the way as well. big mistake.


i thought jb weld would save me but i was running low. i used what i had then compensated with bondo. turns out no amount of jb weld coudl of saved this.

That's more than a lot of folks do.

Better to have modded and lost than to have never modded at all.


Glad you weren't hurt. Maybe while the wallet is open, you might ought to think about ordering one of those aftermarket triggers too.... lol

I plink, therefore I am.

cut the buutstock off at the wrist, leaving enough "meat" for the pignose screws to bite into. the pistol grip uses one short screw to keep the grip from twisting and a longer one thu the hole inide the grip to mount it.

Ergonomics com einto play here, as the grip picutreed is too close to the trigger for this shooter to be comfortable with. I like about 4 inches from the front of the trigger face to the back side of the grip where the web of your hand would ride....

..from a broken stock or did you design it from the start - looks great.

Thanks,

I still have the "whole" butt stock in a box somewhere

I had a mental picture of how it was supposed to work, and that is mostly what you see. Ive also done a Ruger 10/22 that way, much better than factoiry on both.

But, if I were to do it again, I'd work on the grips ergos and on a checck piece for the buttstock to get a more comfortable cheek weld.

That gun was a whole lot of "almost"
