After a lot of mucking around, stalling, being stalled, things are looking positive to get prototypes 1 & 2 built out of Wellington. I’m not doing any further development on the stock until I get P1 back in my hands, as I think at this stage it will be largely pointless as there will be… Continue reading Back to it
Now for the waiting game to build the first prototype and see if this actually works
Bit of experimentation with branding (not really my forte) while I nut out the finer details of the CNC process.
Pretty much ready to chuck this on the mill now as a test in pine plywood. I’ll be able to validate a bunch of stuff and see what kind of ballpark I’m in for strength capability. My weight estimate is less than 400g for the finished milled product,… Continue reading First prototype
Did a bit more exploration of how the wood part of this will work. Pretty confident with this, now to learn more about the carbon fibre.
Something I’ve been fiddling with for a while. Building a rifle stock solely out of carbon is very difficult, and requires at least a 3 part mold, and typically an inflatable bag system. This design would only have carbon in the forend (the adjustable cheek piece is optional, I guess), and would only require a single sided… Continue reading Hybrid stock

Well they went a bit wider, and I haven’t powdercoated the rungs yet, but relatively true to form I think?
Long time, no post. Using the Christmas down-time to build some shelves.
Some sketches and a render of the latest stage of design development:
