i think i may try and do this!! What did you make the custom molded thumb hole out of and how did you do it?
Is yours hallow or did you just mold it on there like playdoe or clay lol and let it dry...how did you get it to stay?
I use Apoxie Sculpt two part putty for all my sculpting on a larger scale (like paintball parts, etc.) It handles just like playdough for about 4 hours and then hardens like rock. You can then sand it and shape it a little by grinding it, etc. I then do a final super-fine sanding on the part and paint it. Super durable and fairly easy to work with.
You can find Apoxie Sculpt online and on Ebay, which is where i buy mine. Its only 40 bucks for a big tub and that should do alot of parts!
When you are making a part make sure to use vasoline on the part of the marker you are sculpting on so you can later be able to get the part off!
if i had an ion i would try to make that, but i think the nipple thing should be in more on teh stock or at an angle so it isn't poking your shoulder. but good design
Since the shoulder goes between the hose and the buttplate I am sure it will shoulder fine. If anything perhaps the buttplate needs to go a little higher and further from the remote hose. The specifics of the buttplate placement is still up in the air and will require experimentation, but that remote hose should always be going under the armpit and will not bump into the shoulder. I already have this sort of feel going on with my snipermag with the Q pod going under my armpit, and it feels fine.
Here is another concept illustration with the Torpedo regulator and a lower Q Loader position for better shouldering.
The Torpedo is very useful, but I am not sure if the Q Loader needs to be moved this much. One would have to figure out which way they would prefer to do it.
