Ok, I went back to the drawing board, and basically gave the U15 a makeover.

Forgot to mention that the cheekrest is there for looks, it should be on the otherside, of course.

The bottom of the inside area near the receiver needs to be higher. It is this way with the U15.

Anyplace where the web of the hand rests has to be above the line passing thru the exposed top of the trigger (and running parallel to the bore).

Please read 11 CCR 5469(d) for regulatory definition of 'pistol grip...'.

If you hold a straight edge against your monitor, the top of the trigger well is just under the top edge of the stock. It's as close as you can get and still be legal.

Not for this lefty!

I really like the look of that, I assume the stock is pinned. Another cool idea would be to add a storage compartment in the bottom of the grip.

Also, it would have to be fixed, of course. The reason for the change in diameter as the stock goes back is that I figured if someone were to make this, the forward section would be a plastic type material, while the rear section would be aluminum or something to that effect to allow for the adjustable pad at the end.

Was that done on Solidworks?

No, I did it in Blender, a 3D Modeling / Animation program. I teach a high school computer art class, and I was playing around, and kind of liked what came of it.

I totally like the idea of the U15 stock, but I would prefer something that looked more industrial, with less organic curves and lines that followed the gun. I have no way of making this thing, though, so I am just throwing ideas out there to maybe inspire someone who can.

I like it!!!! Dude!!! I'm going to start making a mock-up of this stock!!! Now that I'm more comfortable with urethane resins I can easily make one. Now I have something to do this weekend! :D

I like the look of most of it but I think the butt stock part looks a bit too much like the rudder of a plane.

Point me to a buttstock you guys like and I can put it on for show.

How about an inverted version of the new Magpul UBR. Of course it will have to be in a fixed position for the purposes of this stock. One other design idea I have would be to make the cheekpiece extend almost to the aft end of the buffer tube and forward about 3/4 of the full length. I think that would make it a bit more flexible for different people. If this were a real product I would make it detachable and able to snap it on either side for lefties or righties.

Here is a quick and dirty render with the inverted Magpul:

I definitely prefer the industrial look of this stock over the organic look of the 1st generation U-15(hint, hint Toolbox:D) as a better asthetic match to these rifles.

looks less comfortable than the UT-15, I'm all for innovation but don't think this adds anything, at least not to my taste. Keep working!

if you build it, i will buy it. good work. a lot of hour went into this guy.
cad drawing is not as real as it should be. try drawing a U-15 stock, then posted here and ask the guys here for opinion and they will probally say. the U-15 stock look better than the one you just posted. i could almost bet money on it.

keep up the good work.....no...great work!

Check rest is on the proper side :)

Looking pretty cool. Now if you could just transmit that data into my replicator I'll be happy :D

The latest design is a little too long, but really nice looking.

I like it! Anything that does not look like a prosthetic leg is great...
