Need some help from some of you who have made wooden hand grips for a PFS Stock.

I have a stock fitter over here in South Africa who was sure he could do this for me, but now that he has actually taken a look at the job, he is not sure.

His hangup seems to be with the metal block that is embedded in the handgrip.

On a cursory review, it looks quite simple to me. The block has to be machined so that at the front face is perpendicular to the angle of the stock bolt, and the back face of it must be machined so that the PFS mechanism is essentially parallel to the barrel of the gun (albeit slightly lower.)

Am I oversimplifying this?

It seems a competent machinist could knock one of these out in a half hour.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Yes, I am sending this to Vern Brown as well.

Tim, I've built several of them out of wood. The proper hole spacing and bolt angles can be a pain. It's a simple concept but usually not as simple as stated, at least not for me. Good luck with your project. Larry
