forend hole spacing fix

Discussion in 'Thompson' started by billy, Nov 7, 2013.

  1. I don't like most of the for ends for contender pistols
    and I love bench shooting
    so I am going to buy a inletted blank forend.
    and drill holes for every conceivable hole pattern for all the different barrels.
    I don't want to be forced to buy at very least 3 forends for the different patterns of long,short,carbine,bull bbl. Yayaya
    while shopping around I got mad and this is my fix.
     
  2. Oh yeah
    I forgot encore,g2 and all of the variations of those as wll
    contender Swiss army forend here I come.

    I want to see pictures of the finished product
     
  4. Will do!
     
  5. mine is legally a pistol so i can do what i want except the short bbl. rifle stock.
    a 16+ would be ideal for me then.
    i decided i am just going to make a aluminum benchrest forend with holes drilled and movable pillars for any hole spacings i run across.
    while i would LIKE to spend a fortune on lots of different wood furniture.
    i cant afford it and would rather spend my limited funds on barrels.

    billy: Excellent product :) explain more if you would. I like them pillars. :)
     
  7. i took a bath towel rack apart and got those pillars off it
    the circular cuts were already on the parts i used
    then i simply cut the parts shorter with a hacksaw.
