First time with stock but I've been doing woodworking for years. I need to work some finger grooves into the pistol grip itself and I'm considering making it so the cheek rest is adjustable like how it is on the Magpul PRS stock. I know it's possible just would take a lot of work haha. This is normally something I'd ask my grandfather about since he taught me a lot about woodworking and everything like that but unfortunately he passed away in '03First time? No way I could do something that intense. On mine, the stock & pistol grip are seperate. Just traced them and adjusted everything on a template to fit me. Your is going to be some hard work. Keep us updated, would love to see how it turns out.
