Maybe my favorite post so far.

Great collection.

Maybe not quit your day job potential, but you could definitely have a little hobby gig out of this. Pay for more tools and such with it.

This is definitely the coolest thing I've seen on here. I would love to get my hands on some of these. They look amazing and are cheap to shoot. And very fun also I'm sure. If you don't mind me asking, how much does it cost to make one of these stocks? And does start to finish take a long time? I would love to start doing this. Probably nowhere near as good though Great idea!!!

thanks theyre definitely cool and cheap fun.

depends on the stock. the heavy looking stocks will range from $250-$400 because theyre hard to find and theyre just big

the smaller and more common ones are under $200.

again i cannot manufacture these for sale. you'd have to take on the project yourself or have a qualified gunsmith do it for you.

ive done over 30 stocks so it takes me about 3 hours average per stock. it takes longer when it hasnt been done before so i just cut little by little until the action/barrel drops right in.

there's more custom builds at customrifles.info

If they made a 22.lr conversion for the grim reaper rocket launcher would it have any appeal for people to buy
