I talked to "Stocker" John today about making a grip for the BT100. He does not have a master for that model. I asked if he could use an existing stock, and he said he tried that but it does not work. He said you need more drop for the grip and he would have to start with a wood blank to get it right. Aparently he has made grips in the past for 400.00. John feels he can not be profitable at that price even if he had a master. He does seem like a great guy.
I make the PFS grips out of wood. What I found with a factory K80 stock is you can't set the front of the PFS low enough in the grip. It will accept it but the drop at comb is too high for most people. A factory Perazzi stock is deep enough to give a reasonable drop at comb. Maybe I'm missing something. Let us know if you pull it off. Larry
I had the same thought Surfer. I talked to Vern from PFS today about that. He felt the BT100 reciever was much longer and wider than the BT99 grip and there was not enough material to work with. Never say never. I am concerned about the metal fitting inside the PFS grip that the PFS adjustable stock fits into and the single attachment bolt screws into. I would think with out that male/female metal conection the stock would eventually loosen in wood from the torque. VDT must be using epoxy to secure a nut into his wood grip. There sure are some talented and creative shooters out there.
How about buying a BT 100 Weing semi inletted stock and have them leave the wood unshaped behind the grip leaving a block for you to work with. Or how about a Weing or used factory stock as mold pouring plaster of parris around it using it as a female mold that you could pour a resin grip? I think the Weing unfinished stock would be a good start.
