stock

I really like the forend. It has nice lines and looks like it would ride your hand well. Ever thought of putting one of your stocks up for sale. I would like to see what a Hipshot stock would go for on RFC. You could tale bids on this site like EBAY. Just a thought. My guess is it would go for over $100. This would cover your time and effort but it would give a RFC shooter bragging rights.

How much would you charge to trace those pieces on some other pieces of wood, and send them to me? I'd LOVE to have that set-up!

Nice work ...

Tom

Extra cool.

I really like the exploded view. When I get my first one done (got a bit more spare time coming up) I think I would like to do something like that for myself since I will have a spare carbine stock. Plus I have my original 925 stock to mod as well.

A Few Morphing Shots

I did all the work on the forearm before adding the butt stock. It is much easier to handle, much easier to clamp into a vise, and much, much easier to machine and hand tool without the butt stock in the way.

...............................

Ruger 10/22 Carbine stock milled out ready to receive the add ons. I still need to cut off the barrel band nose piece.


The bottom piece and a side piece ready to be glued on.


The barrel channel filler block ready to be glued in.


The mid rib extensions. These will later be faired in with bondo.


The nose cut to 30 degrees and the bottom piece marked for the taper. I cut this down with a hand plane and rounded the bottom to better fit the palm of my hand.


The sides of the bottom piece tapered. I used a 1/4" bit in a router table to cut the barrel cooling slots, then just cleaned up the bottom of the barrel channel in that area free hand with a trim router.



Bottom view of the forearm showing the taper. Note that the magazine removal hole has been covered up.


Bondo applied to the forearm and sanded out. I also contoured the flat sides a bit.


Here it is again in context. Morphed.....well, sort of.

Ideas

Hipshot, you just keep coming up with good ideas. Showed my stock to some guys at the gun store today, and had one guy tell me he had two carbine stocks that he will give me. Woo-hoo!

Roughing in the Buttstock

The buttstock pieces glued on and cut to length.


The first layer of bondo.


I cut the cheekpiece from a 1/2" thick stock and glued it on.


I milled out a flat spot to add a small piece to form a thumb rest.


The thumb rest block glued on.


Roughing in the shape of the thumb rest and the grip. I like to mark the grip and thumbhole with guidelines to help with roughing out the shape.


The thumb rest contoured close to finished shape. I still need to form the actual depression where the thumb lays.


Close up view of both sides of the grip rough in.





A view of both side with the rough in of the grip and thumbhole almost completed.

That is gonna be a really nice stock. You really should consider putting together some kits for sale.
