Hardware source for building an adjustable stock

My dad and I have always had a dream of building our own stocks out of laminate blank. Does anyone know of a source where I can get hardware for building an adjustable cheek piece? I am also considering putting an accessory rail on it as well, so a source for that would be helpful as well.

    Depends on what you're actually trying to accomplish. Do you want the saddle style cheek piece that straddles the buttstock, or do you want the kind where the actual buttstock has a section of it that is adjustable up/down front/back etc?
    Also, what are we mounting on the accessory rail?

    I am pro-DIY, so I can fabricate just about anything, but sometimes there are little things you can buy that are premade ready to install. The Karsten Adjustable cheekpiece is about $80, but it is nice, consistent and about as easy to install as a new shoelace. I'm more prone to building something yourself. Let me know what you two are trying to do and maybe I can help!

    Thanks for the replies everyone. This project is still in the concept stage and you have given me a lot to think about. The kind of adjustable cheek piece hardware that we would be looking for is the type that raises a part of the stock, as opposed to the adjustable comb that you can buy.
