Airmax 2 stock added

I took this stock off of my airmax pistol, and with very little effort fitted it to the Airmax 2 as well...also I added 2 8/32 setscrews to the breech to hold the barrel in place...
The stock is made from a 4' piece of 1/4" mild steel rod.
Most have seen this stock on the other pistol, I just wanted to show it can adapt.

Mike, what about the holes in the breech it works good holding the barrel ?, also how did you make the thread in the holes to receive the screws,

Thanks,

Ruddy

Those are

2 -8/32" holes I drilled and tapped for setscrews to firmly hold the barrel in place...I think it'd be fairly easy to accomplish without extensive tools.

Mike, what fitting is that holding the stock on?

May 31 2017, 11:18 PM 

The wire stock shouldn't be too much of a trick to pull off, but that fitting attaching it to the pistol needs a few more pics and an explanation of where it came from, or how it was made....by the way, I'm trying to figure out a way to put a stock on my Airmax II because I thing it makes a better mini-carbine than a long pistol.

What is that piece on the end of the wire stock?

Can you show a pic of the stock collapsed?


I'm trying to figure out how to do this exact stock without any machining tools....can you help a fella out????

Pics and info

June 1 2017, 1:03 PM 

The block at the front is a piece of black delrin, 3/4' by 2" about 1-1/4" tall
The circle piece I made from 7/16" thick Al....
0nescrew hold everything in place, the delrin block has the stock holes drilled a bit wider than the ones on the aluminum piece, so as it slides rearward, it tightens by friction..
Notice the small notch on the back of the shroud,it allows the Al piece to be fitted to the air cylinder
Hope this helps....

Making the stock...

June 1 2017, 1:15 PM 

If you're into this, here's how I made the stock...
1/4" x 4' piece of rod,marked 2' then bent it around a piece of 1" pipe...then after deciding how much shoulder I wanted, I clamped both ends evenly and bent them down around a piece of 1/2' rod...I used a map gas torch to make it easier to get them even....
The stock is 1-1/2" wide so it'll slip past everything on the pistol
Then I cut the ends of the stock to my required length
I did make a small yoke out of delrin to slip on the stock at the back to "stiffen" itup but it isn't needed
I think the rod was 4 dollars

T-Slots

The T-Slots on the sides of the shroud are just begging to have something useful attached to them!

My only concern is any pressure or stress placed on them could "bend" the barrel and shift the POI.
