I have a friend who is coming to his first game with us, recball/woodsball. He was gifted a used MR100 and wants to stick with it. The problem is the butt stock absolutely sucks once you have a mask on. You can't get your head behind the gun and are off to the side. It's just awkward.
He doesn't want to run it with a tank mounted and stock removed, he doesn't think we will take it easy on him since we all have electronic markers, and says the milsim look of the marker is the only way he will have fun. I even offered him my 2nd Axe and he declined.
I have a tapco stock for an actual rifle and they come with a second angled tube, which raises the rifle from the shoulder in a sense, instead of a straight back stock.
The tube at the top.
I was thinking that would be the best way to mod the MR100 stock so it allowed room for the mask. The problem is I am not sure what the best method to modify it would be. Do I try and melt the plastic or soften it and create a bend and hope it cools down and remains stiff enough? Do I saw off at an angle at certain point then put a dowel and connect the two parts at an angle with screws and glue? Something easier? Do I just tell him to kick rocks and go with a mounted tank or not go at all?
The MR100 stock is a hollow tube past the fake castle nut if it makes a difference. Thanks for any help.
