I have been fine tuning the design of my LD Stock. I am using a 1" QD weaver scope mount to attach the stock. I milled a picatinny base to attach to the QD mount. It gives it a rock solid mounting point and the great convenience of the QD. I like to be original in the things I design and make and I am pretty happy with this version.It has about 1" of vertical adjustment and I might install a cheek piece.
I call it the QD LD Barstock
Hope you guys like it. It make the LD a nice carbine and easy to transport.
I gave it a matte black powder coat finish and took it for a test run out to the field. The stock work perfectly, it shoulders great and is very rigid and strong as well as light weight. Being able to switch from pistol to carbine in a couple seconds was great.
The stock work just as plained and now it is time to make another for my other LD
Yep, the lever can be put on either side. A cheek piece

is in the works. It has to look right and fit right. If someone wanted they can position the lever to point down while locked. But when the lever is closed it is out of the way and does not interfere using it at all.

Really nice mounting setup!

looks very neat. One thing though .... the placement of those holes is not so good as they seriously weaken the structure. I recommend putting them between the bends rather than right at them to make a unit no weaker than sans holes and a bit cooler looking.
I thought about that before I made it. So I made one and I tested the bends and they are plenty rigid for a pistol stock. To get any flex in it would require significant force far more then would ever used as a shoulder stock.
