Hi all.

New here, but I wanted to share a modification I made to my shoulder stock that I don't think I've seen here. I love my MR1, but to me the only major design flaw was how hard it was to attach and remove the stock. Fiddling with that little screw? A huge pain. So I took a drill press, put a hole in the side of the gun and through the attachment point of the stock, and behold: (sorry, the pics are a little large)

Conveniently, the hole I had to drill was almost exactly 1/4", so it was really simple to do.

I ordered a second pin of the type that holds in the velocity adjuster from Kingman, but they sent me this other shiny silver quick-release thing instead [below, left]. It works very well, although the new pin has to be used to hold in the velocity adjuster- it's about a millimeter too short to hold in my stock, but the original one does the trick for that. I would really like a matched set of pins though, so if anyone happens to have an extra one of the smaller, darker pin [below right] lying around that they'd be willing to sell or trade, please let me know!

Oh, and just for kicks, here's a photo my marker at the moment:

Awsome idea, I was trying to think of a way to make my stock detacable like that, Does the stck sit in tere good and solid, or is there any play to it?

that's a really good idea..considering that there is always one reason to have to take off your stock but it is always a pain with the tactical rail in the way, etc etc

did you drill the whole entirely through?

There's a tiny bit more play than with the screw, but it's really barely anything. Since all the parts that I drilled through are aluminum, I don't think it will loosen up with time, either. I can still use the screw to attach it, too, should it ever become a problem.

The hole is all the way through. I measured things so that the drill would go straight through the existing sideways screw hole in the stock (who uses that anyway?) , to avoid weakening it as much as possible. Note: newer stocks appear to have a shorter attachment part, which might mean you need to readjust where you drill.
Also, I drilled through both the marker and stock together, while the stock was screwed in, so everything would line up perfectly. I would definitely not recommend trying this without a drill press though.

Where did you get your hands on the MR3 tac rail? I haven't been able to find one. Thanks!
