Lonnie asked me to make a few accessories for his Dave G Daystate stock... I like to help out the guys and gals in our local group with custom machine work and repairs/tunes because I enjoy working on airguns and tinkering in my workshop.

I like how it all came together...
?t=1294135286
?t=1294135286
I made a new threaded stock screw mount with a 1" diameter 3.5" long threaded riser post and a 2-1/2" wide 7" long front rest.
?t=1294135286
?t=1294135286

A new dovetail butt plate was made with a 1/4" hole through the middle to hold a stainless steel butt riser rod; flipped over the existing butt plate, reshaped it and the butt pad to fit the stock.
?t=1294135286

I milled a 1/4" channel in the butt plate dovetail to prevent screwmarks making the butt plate hard to readjust.
?t=1294135286

Lonnie commented that he would prefer adjustment screws with knobs on them... I don't like those cheezy red plastic knobs so I made 2 stainless steel screws with stainless steel knurled knobs for the bipod and butt riser.

I was looking at this project and decided to make an adjustable front riser.

Adjusts from 2-3/4" to over 4".
