Default Built me a stock today

I was going to buy a stock for my xtra but i could not find much so i built one today! It's aluminum so it's light,have not got it painted yet but it will get airbrushed digi-camo(i think) by my friend when he does the gun.It clears my 48 cu inch HPA tank but i am going to go to a remote line soon. Heres the crappy cellphone pics,What do you all think?? I think i will add a brace in the void of the stock in the am

looks good, but a brace will definitely help. reminds me of back in the day when people made drops out of aluminum like that.

Yeah it's cheap,the aluminum was 5.50 at home depot then the rivets so maybe less than that

I cut a wooden "buck"out of a scrap piece of 2x4 i had with a sawzall then fine tuned it with a hand grinder with a flap disc.I have metal shaping tools that i have made out of anything i see that has the right shape,this was made by clamping the alum.and buck in my vise then massaging it with a wooden T-ball bat my 6yr old shattered at a game.Cut the bat down to about a foot long works great on soft metals when you need to get a rounded contour
