Prototype Stock - ABS

Post by MadGumby on Mon May 19, 2014 10:03 pm

Hi everyone. Long time watcher, first time joining and posting...just wanted to share with you all something I've been working on for the last few months.
One of the first details that drew me to the kriss was the original prototype stock. I followed the progress and development of the civilian version, but was only disappointed when the final version was released.



Ever since then, I waited and waited for aftermarket stocks but they never came.

So I just decided to partner up with a machinist friend and just do it myself. Here's the result.






So far, it has passed all my criteria for a stock. You aren't going to bash a door in with it, but it is sturdy, folds correctly, sling pin fits, and feels good against my shoulder.
Let me know what you guys think of them and if there is any interest in me doing a few more. Thanks,

Gumby

Really nice. Very compact. Is there any way you could
recreate the MP5K VFG? That bring the prototype
full circle!

It was based of pictures in the sense that the measurements where extrapolated from various angles and the real stock. Thursday I will get some better pictures.

Ha, the VFG is something else I've had rolling around in the back of my head for a while but haven't got even close to that one yet. That's another thing I can't figure out why they changed in final production.

WOW!! I have always thought the same. Are you planning on making any more of these? If you don't mind my asking, what was the price for the one you have? I know there are the airsoft versions of the stock and grip out there, but I haven't had any luck finding reviews on them.

Well mine was expensive for the fact I had to design everything and pay for the tooling/molds but I bet I could sell them for about $150 if I wanted, it wouldn't take much to produce another batch. They would just have to be an interest I think

Just curious how similar this is to the airsoft versions available? You said you had to kinda make up your own dimensions. It looks great, though. Is it aluminum? I am most certainly interested in one, if it's anything close to a reasonable price. Thanks.

What materials did you make yours of? Any chance we can get the info of the shop that did it? I'm really interested in how this was made and if they would do another one. Thanks.

We can do more if there is a demand.I have no problem doing a run of them. If not, I'll probably just keep this as a one off to make me feel special.

I will take one. You mentioned $150 in one of your previous posts. Some may think that is high but some of my AR stocks costs about the same so count me in.

I'll second that as long as we can see some of the details as far as how it's made. I won't say who was involved or what forum it was but there was a person a few years back who attempted to pass off airsoft parts as reproduction Bulgarian AK parts and was charging people premiums on some, what they thought, very rare parts and accessories. Needless to say the collectors were pretty upset. I'm not saying that is what we are seeing here, but I just want to make sure the process starts out open and honest. That being said, I'm most certainly interested in this stock.

I have been trying to answer my PMs as best as I can. There is a common misconception here. I am not a shop or gunsmith. I only did this as a project. I ONLY did the CAD designing. Everything else was "manufactured" by my buddies at their place of work. I don't know where the confusion has come from? I was kind of just showing off my creation hahaha

Q: Can we make more?
A: Sure, but don't have any plans to

Q: What's the name of shop that did this?
A: No "shop" just me designing it, and my friends executing it for me.

Q: How much for one?
A: Ummm...If we wanted to make more for sale, I'd have to work out the details of pricing/availability with my friends but any more it's just looking like too many headaches.

Thanks again for expressing interest in this. I hope to see what I can do with a combined vertical grip next.

Any update on this? Any chance we could see some pictures of the mold or anything else you and your friend have? I'm still interested in the process for sure. I'd like to see how yours stacks up against the airsoft version that's out there. Thanks.

And this is exactly why I was under the skeptical impression that the stock on display is simply the airsoft version available all over the internet.

He did not make the stock. It's an airsoft replica that's readily available all over the place. I believe he lied as a sort of bragging thing, which is no big deal since it didn't harm the members here. That is also why he likely did not attempt to sell them here. If at some point he comes back and provides evidence to the contrary then I will happily apologize and move on. Until then, I'm sticking with what was my suspicion from the very beginning. Sorry to sound harsh but let's remember this is the internet. Lol
