Converting My pistol to a carbine
« on: May 20, 2016, 03:28:07 PM »
I started the conversion of my pistol to a carbine this week. I made a longer shroud to add my baffles. Inletted the stock and got the basic shape done. I still need to fillet the edges and mount a folding stock adapter. I need to get the folding stock before I can do that. Going to get a shotgun barrel mount to mount a bipod and flash light.

Before


Start of the conversion.

Thanks Joe. I just picked up a used folding paintball stock off ebay. Should be here next week. I'll have to figure out a way to attach it.

Ok got the tri-rail barrel mount in for the bipod. Received the folding stock, modified it and made an adapter to mount it to the stock. Did some more machining on the stock. Clearance for the RVA, rounding and putting 45° on the edges. I have a green laser coming that I'm going to mount under the tube. Looking for a light, any suggestions welcomed.
