  • Rifle Stock

    Fired up Rhino 3D and drew some profile curves:



    Now loft the curves, cap planar ends, do a little fussing with it, and bingo, you got a rifle stock:







    Not bad for an hour and a half or so of fiddling. It's not quite right, but can be tweaked.

    Now where did I put that darned CNC router? Heh, heh!

    Best,

    Now that's just cool Bob! A bit of blending here and there...
    Reminds me...I tried making part of my living building and hand checkering rifle/shotgun stocks. Was a starve to death business up here. I still have an unfinished offset trap stock I was to build for an 1100 trap gun I was using at the time. A very nice piece of Claro.
    The last custom stock I built was also a nice piece of Claro....the action was an old Ross straight pull...uggg...chambered for 7mm Weatherby Mag. That thing made me pretty nervous when shooting it. Touched off the first few with the gun stuck in a tire. It actually shot very well but I never liked it much. The customer used that for years on his trips to Africa.

      I'm gonna stick a reworked Mauser action in it if I ever get to it. Too many projects. My pal was over wanting to talk Mausers so he got me fired up to try to draw a stock. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to do it or not. Lots of curves in a stock.

      Best,

        Darn impressive Bob! That would sure take the bull work out of building a stock if the drawing didn't take too much time. About a days work with some hand sanding and you'd be ready for the gun show!

        Thank you to our families of soldiers, many of whom have given so much more then the rest of us for the Freedom we enjoy.

        It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.
