looks good.

Thanks! Im thinking of cutting the stock, should i cut the top or the bottom?

I know i will be able to see down the gun if i cut the top...but it might look more like a smg if i cut off the bottom.

well I guess it would depend if you want it to look good, or be more functinal. The choice can only be made by you.

I don't like stocks because they get in the way of my mask so I would cut the top but that's just me.

I think I would cut the barrel tip off myself. Looks good.

yea i was just gonna have the whole barrel covered but i wanted to keep the ported end uncovered so it's easy to chrono...

aesthetically, i think it looks better with the tip cut off as well.
it's hard to tell in most of the pics, but i'm pretty sure it's an olive MR1, am i correct?
I'm also a fan of the dogtail stock mod.
finally, i love how it's percariously perched on the fence in all the pictures :)

i was alittle hesitant about the dogleg...but i said said screw it and cut it quick before i could think about it, lol.

haha yea it took a bit to get it to stay up there, percariously perched indeed.

thanks dude! I'm having trouble attaching the mag at the moment...the way i thought was gonna work didnt work...so i've been trying to think how to do it without sacrificing the look and functionality. :confused:

I know this is probably asked a lot, but does cutting the stock like that harm the strength of the stock? I did plenty of searches and either came up with not so useful topics or have to go through like 30 pages, and I really don't want to sit in front of a computer doing that all day.

It probably weakens it a little but nothing to drastic. I think it would take a bit of force to break it.

I haven't noticed a difference at all, still plenty solid...

This has nothing to do with the stock being cut dog-leg style, but I broke a stock right were the end nub part stick outs, so you can screw it into the body. I was running through the woods during a game and my foot smashed through a rotted tree trunk laying on the ground and the stock got rammed into my shoulder and snapped :/
