Get a piece of metal probably 1" by 7 or 8" And just bend it... I used a press, and it turned out good... the only problem is it was too much of drop and wouldnt fit in my case for the gun... so I took it off...

most hardware stores sell alum and steel stock.. i recomend getting stainless steel rather than alum for the drop.. for one alum dosnt bend as well and when you do bend it it degrades the structure of the metal.. and also it oxidizes rather quickly if not anodized. the stainless will be stronger and look better in the long run.

yea usualy they sell the metal stock in 1,2 and 4 foot lengths. obviously you willl have to cut it to size but its not hard at all. just make sure its thick enough gage so that it wont bend with normal use.
