Tired of over priced pieces of plastic? Just make your own! Take a stip of metal and twist it ,then bend it any way you want.  I tried to make it look like an M1 carbine paratrooper stock.  Take out the screw right above your back grip, and find a slightly longer one. (you can get screws for like 20 cents) When you have the shape you want, just drill a hole in it and get the screw that will fit in the hole. I made mine come back around and i screwed it on the bottom of the grip.  I wrapped mine in camo tape, because i play woods.  Just get creative and you can come up with your own design using this technique.

HAHA, you wouldnt believe this but i did have it taped in the middle.  I took it off because it didnt look that good.  Thinking about putting some sheet metal or something.  And thanks for the comment.

Hey thanks for the comments! Im new here so its good to hear all of it.  By the way, it probably took me 30 min to bend it and get it in the shape I wanted it, just to let you know.

i made a drop-forward out of 1 inch wide band steel. it looks great, keeps the tank out of the way, and cost me $1.08. now im thinking about making a new trigger gaurd instead of that cheap plastic one.[/IMG]

I will make one later today if i can find some aluminum. I will probaly use

1" wide aluminum and bend the end as a stock.

It will go on the grip of my 98c

That is so cool! Good job. I hope mine turns out half that good.

Thanks guys, Ive been trying to make a wooden stock, but your right, its really hard to make it stay on tight.  How are you attatching it to your gun SniperBoy01?  Just curious because i want to compare.  Oh yeah... that photo is out of date, right now, its painted olive drab.

Thats what I figured, but Im having trouble finding something to replace the end cap.  Im thinking of just trying to carve an end cap out of wood that i could screw a stock to.

Good Luck on that one and Im doin somethin similair wit the end cap to my 98c by drillin a 1/2" hole to where I can attach the A5 sling ring, I jus need to find someone wit a drill press to do it.
