I currently have a Magpul hunter stock and I would like to add an Arca rail to the bottom of the stock forward of the magazine well to attach to the head of my tripod. I have contacted Magpul and they do not recommend any modifications to the stock.
I also have a KRG bravo stock with a Arca rail on the bottom and I prefer the stability when attached to a tripod as compared to using a PIG saddle as shown.
I am willing to take ownership of modifying the stock and any potential negative impacts. For those of you who have more experience with this sort of modifications do you have any recommendations on how I should attach a rail to the bottom of the stock? I am wondering if I should install threaded inserts, possibly screwing the rail in directly? Attached is an image of the rifle in its current configuration.
Thank you for any input.
I have the same stock. Definitely gonna be making this upgrade soon! Thanks for the picsI took your advice and just went to a local camera store to see what they had. I found one that would work. I was able to use one of the internal bosses and just threaded it. The others I drilled, and used JB Weld to hold the blind nuts in place. I think it will work just fine. Thank you for the input.
