    Jun 7, 2005, 12:03 AM - Conecting the gun to the stock #1

    I've found a cap gun that should work well for my esb gun and i think i'm going to be making a wood stock, my question is...

    What are you guys using as the U-shaped part that connects the gun handle to the stock?

    thank, GC

    I cut mine out of wood, but I'm redoing it eventually. I would recommend Sintra if you have access to it.

    my old neighbour works in metal processing and stuff, so when I said what I wanted and what it was for and gave him a template, he made mine out of 3mm thick aluminium, doesn't bend, and is paintable.

    I first made one out of plexi-glas, and it hold the gun together, but it was extremely fragile.

    I made mine out of 1/4" sintra and it is pretty wobbly.....I would used wood or aluminum.

    ok thanks guys, I just called a few sign shops around here and found one that's willing to sell me some sintra, but I think I will see about getting the part cut in metal... I'll let you know how it turns out.
