Sorry it took me so long to get back to this topic. Once again I'm caught up in work.
The H&K stock is a sweeet, I actually tried replicating it and learned about a few interesting details in the process.
My inspiration were a bit different though...
Saw CheTac M200 and fell in love with it.
Looks like it even uses a cam lever to lock the stock in place.
And the platform chosen for the mod was one of those Taiwanese folding crossbows...chose the platform after seeing this crossbow made by Zaoshi (some company in Taiwan that's notorious for cloning a variaty sports equipment...a nock off manufacturer of sorts).
Drag for a 360 view.
...still the folding bow they made actually showed some interesting features(like the unique folding limbs that are locked by swinging the stirrup in place) and I moved on with the mod.
Now the issues I was talking about is that this wire stock was flexing left and right on me, I used a 3/8" rod and the butt still tilted to the right when I shouldered it. It was comfortable and all since it shifted to contour the shoulder anatomy, but I abandoned the project since it didn't instill in me much confidence. Might pick it up again though and try to reinforce it somehow...perhaps do a molded hollow butt/cheekpiece part similar to CheTac and use thicker rods(probably even tubes or slides). Any suggestions welcome.
I got more on the Uzi stock, but I'm out of time now and most of it will have to wait till tomorrow(ok, I know it's already 4 hours into tomorrow, so tonight actually
OK, Last thing, since I just can't not mention it...
Good for you Ivo on inventing it.
Yeah I know the feeling of creating something only to find it has
been done already. It gets worse if the other design is better
Yeh, it really sucks, but thinking about it now....at least we don't have to work out all the bugs.
What makes me happy is this...I would have spent more money building my half ass prototype when in reality that stock goes for only $15 on this site: Link
*don't know what I'm going to do with the slide cover that comes with it, but I'm getting the stock to use with the project that I was designing it for...hey saves me some time, so why not?
