Dyeman,Very interesting. Where did you source the Coosa board? I'd never heard of it until you mentioned it. How hard is it to work with?I've been looking for a .22LR 7-2 (I have two 22WMR's) but the very few I've found that are new are $1K+ - so not exactly an impulse buy ... and a far cry from the $250 they originally fetched. Supply and demand, I guess ;)
From 3D to Reality - Making a Resin Sculpture from a CG Character
No, it's not really necessary - it just needs to be strong and long enough to keep the jamb from being splintered. The rail I put in is 36" long with some pretty stout screws holding it in place. The bigger danger at this point is that the lockset would pivot under force and split out the door - but that's where the NightLock comes into play ;)http://www.ebay.com/itm/Door-Barricade-Brace-The-NIGHTLOCK-Security-Lock-BRUSHED-NICKEL-FINISH-/161603961825?hash=item25a058c3e1:g:Hq0AAOxy4dNS7P~7
Building a Custom Rifle Stock
Restore an Old Vise
Looking to use this build on a friend's door, does the metal extend the entire length of the frame?
JW -Buttstock hardware is a mix of Home Depot bits and a Mec III adjustable. Stock is made from Coosa board with a 3 layer CF shell applied with a home brew vacuum bagging rig powered by a frig compressor. You are absolutely right about the stiffness of CF- the cheek piece weighs 0.3oz and you can hardly flex it. Agreed on the thumb wheels, but I couldn't find one that was light weight and fit inside the comb. The next version is already on the drawing board - CF over foam, removable/adjustable grip, hexagonal fore stock, butt assembly fabricated from salvaged CF hockey stick with adjustable comb & butt plate. My main design inspiration from www.behance.net. CF can really be addictive! If you get the chance to snag a .22LR 7-2, they are really amazing suppressor hosts for the money. Good subsonic ammo makes one a real 'critter-gitter' :^)
Hey Dyeman,That is one sweet-looking Rusky Gun! I'll bet you get a million questions at the range :)Did you make your buttstock hardware or did you find a place to source it from? Is that carbon over wood or foam? Carbon fiber is amazing stuff, isn't it? Crazy how stiff those thin parts can be. I recently threaded the barrel on my BB and have been running a Spectre II can, but .22WMR is a *little* louder than .22LR :) On an aesthetic note, you might want to find some nice thumb-wheels for those cheek-piece mounting studs - but that minor niggle aside - great job! Very impressive! I have a second BB in .22WMR that I'm thinking I want to build an ultra-light stock for ... I'm thinking foam-core and carbon fiber - you may just have inspired ME - lol

JW-Thanks for the inspiration! I took a different route and made one from scratch. A lot of fun learning various techniques using carbon fiber, resin & automotive clear coat. I took several of your comments to heart and even picked up a Zyliss multi-vise. The best advise was to cut the whole project up into 30-60min tasks. Took a while, but pretty cool results. Already designing the next version :^) Keep those chips a flyin'
