You said it.

I never tire of looking at what everyone's up to. I still haven't touched my version of Sawdust's stock. Got it started a couple years ago and then got sidetracked.

Maybe it's time I pulled that out of the closet again.

This is truly outstanding stuff! I must sound like a broken record, but I never cease to be amazed at what RFCers are capable of.
Unless I've misunderstood what I've read, Hipshot is responsible for the initial design and creation of a lot of what you see available for sale today. Fantastic! Bravo Hipshot!

Thanks for the bump Chaser and please continue to reveal these hidden gems for us noobs.

You got it right...in Hipshots spare retirement time he has forever changed and moved forward with new designs that in my lifetime will continue to be outstanding achievements that may not be matched...and as I understand it he has given his creations to those whom now profit from his craftsmanship...I'm very proud to know him. Hipshot is a hero in my eyes/thoughts and I would challenge anyone to come close to his achievements...I know I am not man enough...wish I was. He is the type of Man that is hard to find now days...I will always hold his work in the highest regard and hope that his legacy is never forgotten and taken for granted.
I was lucky enough to get to know several of the talented Gents early on in my RFC days that are now gone...gone but not forgotten as many of there informational and enlightening posts still show in Stickies all over RFC...Hipshot is one of the most talented Men I have ever known and is so so so giving/caring. I owe much to many of these guys that I try to repay in a meager way...the only way I can...helping others.

Thank you for bringing up this outstanding body of work. I'm a noob and I enjoy the diversity of builds on this forum. Mr Hipshot had vision and capability that just makes me stare in awe.

I've seen these in snippets, but haven't viewed this thread since I was a member under another ??? Username about 6-7 years ago. Really cool stuff-
Vince Heier told me much about the evolution of the Raptor, and the initial prototypes are cooler than the present day successor.
I tried to find one of Hipshots BR stocks a out a year ago, but alas, he told me they had all been sold off.
Awesome work, Hipshot!!!

Chaser- thanks for shining a light on this-

Question: WHERE ARE THEY NOW????

I would love to see one of these primordial masterpieces in the Ultimate of the Month contest...

Awesome!

Being a relatively "new guy" myself, I sure am glad this thread got bumped.

So, that's where the "T-Rex" and "Archangel Target" design came from.
It started out as a factory stock!

Hipshot is my new hero.

DrGunner,

Could you make this a sticky? Not the whole thread, just the posts with links or other relevant information. I've seen some of it but I don't think I've seen it all in one thread. Or maybe it's already there and I just missed it but if it's not yet it should be a sticky.

So hipshot, I bought this Charger stock used from someone. They said it was one of your creations. Is that correct?

Correct. Here is a link to the thread I posted on it.

I did two versions, a short forearm and a long forearm. This is the long forearm version.
