Yeah, it is easy and simple too.I am wanting to make a stock like this without losing an arm and a leg. I know alot of people will say they are worth it just do it. But right now I just do not have the cash.
anyone have a how to they would share?
Thanks!Thats a pretty cool design. Thanks for sharing.
Did you make that scope mount too?
I must be a glutton for punishment... found and ordered a Mako pistol grip to put on my plastic SA stock. Once getting started, I'll post some pics for ya'll to hee-haw at.A company called Mako used to make an AR15 pistol grip/stock adapter for the Mossberg 500 and Remington 870 shotguns. You can find them on Ebay still. I used the mossy 500 version.
Good for you! I like the way mine came out. I wish I had thought to take pics along the way as a howto.. but I just sort of put it together on a lark. To tell you the truth, I never even got around to buying a buttstock for it. I used my AR's stock temporarily for testing, but I keep my M1A's in wood furniture.. does the ACE thingy fold to the left? If so, I'd think it would work fine (no chance to interfere with the op-rod handle).I must be a glutton for punishment... found and ordered a Mako pistol grip to put on my plastic SA stock.

Looking around, I see Ace has an adapter to make a folder out of this rig. I gotta try it. Always wanted a tight para stock with a nana clip. BANANA1
If you want to permanently glue the mako in place, you'll need to rough up the surface pretty good.. its quite smooth.Here's the left folder... Kinda pricey. I'll be sure the Mako is way tight before buying the Ace folder.
If it all works out, that'd be around $200 for a tight M1A folding pack gun.
Lots better than what VLTOR, CMM and McMillan is asking for their mod stocks.
I just hope the Mako grip stays tight. Need some bad 2d bone glue, for sure.
I'm using the ITT/Enidine recoil absorbing buttstock extention on the above rifle. Between that and the modded SEI muzzle brake it feels like shooting a 5.56! Agonized a little over the added weight when the stock was on a std weight barreled rifle, but it's no real concern with the current HB w/bipod version. Gets a little counter weight to improve balance.I'm actually glad the epoxy didn't adhere.. since the M1A stock now accepts Mossberg fittings, at some point I might buy a Knoxx recoil absorbing stock and try it out.. just to see what happens. That way I have a built in excuse to buy a 590A1 after I put the USGI wood back on the M1A.
If you really want a permanent attachment, I would drill a few small additional holes for pins in both the adapter and the stock. Rough up all the surfaces, slather it up with gorilla glue (works well for plastics in my experience) pin it, and bolt it down.you fellas have given me pause to think about how secure I want the Mako before committing to a pricey buttstock. My philosophy is more like Tim Taylor's... "more power"!! Once I get the Mako handle trimmed real tight, I gotta glue and screw it.
That said... anybody know what kinda PVC/JB weld combo glue to use for a permanent weld?
Got the Mako grip in the mail today. Very nice! Really has a swoll palm area to fit my ham hand.If you really want a permanent attachment, I would drill a few small additional holes for pins in both the adapter and the stock.
