    Jan 9, 2007, 3:36 PM - Gauging Interest - Aluminum Webley Stock Brackets #1

    Hi again folks,

    I know that there are a ton of scratch builders out there and from experience, the hardest thing to replicate on the webley is the stock bracket. Most of the rest can be made from wood and plastic but if you don't have access to a metal shop or metal working tools, it can be super hard to replicate the bracket.

    WoF was kind enough to supply me with his CAD files for the Webley. In addition, I bought a casting of the actual grip plate from a Webley. Alan did an awesome job on his templates but I had to make a few minor changes to the templates to exactly match the Webley grip. As a result, I was able to get a friend to make me a couple stick plates out of 1/8" aluminum. They came out awesome!

    Just curious if there is a market for these? If there is, I might be able to get a run of these done here locally. To be honest, I haven't even called around to get pricing but wanted to check here first to gauge interest.

    Let me know.

    (Sorry, I don;t have a digital but here's a screen cap of the piece)

    Would be interested.

    I have sidewinders kit, and that stock is the weak spot in it. (granted, he added support to it)

    One made of aluminum would fit the bill though!
