With the older Monsterman grip and my stubby stock, all I needed was a woodworker's rasp, and I was able to get the MMG to fit the shorter stock in about 15 minutes. With the newer MMG, I notice there is substantially more material, and more room to mess up $45.

So first, I used a contour gauge, you can buy these at HomeDepot or any woodworking store. I am pretty sure they are less than $10. Keep it, you'll find plenty of other home projects to use it for later. http://i76.photobucket.com/albums/j36/creampuff464/DSC_4714.jpg


Then scribe the shape onto the grip with a Sharpie (the official pen of Terrell Owen).

Use a hacksaw, to make the rough cut. Good job in material selection Monsterman, that plastic was tough; my hacksaw bound up a couple of times. Usually a hacksaw should be able to cut through plastic like a hot knife through butter. Leave a little room for error when cutting with the hacksaw... remember the woodworker's saying "I cut it twice and it is still too short!!" Clean up with a orbital sander, a file, or sandpaper.

All done.

This is exactly how I want to finish my next build. I have a CMMG lower I just picked up yesterday, a MM grip and YHM muzzle break I just got from Coldwar Shooters. I need to order a midlength RRA upper from Legal-Transfers, and I want to add a a RRA Entry stock to the build; the A2 stock doesn't feel good on my shoulder since I'm a short guy. The Collapsable stock feels great, but I have A LOT (stocked up before the ban in 2000) of pre-ban 30 rounders for my registered AW, but I want to use them legally in my OLL. The Entry Stcok would be the only one that fits my shoulder right.Thanks for the info

Good job man! That's a good idea.

Yeah, the material is tough. That is why I chose it. I wanted you guys to be able to take this grip to battle with if need be.

Looks good. :)

The Entry Stock was just a bit short for me, I bought a Choate recoil pad, which added an additional 1 &1/4in to the length. Midwayusa is out of stock, but states it should be back in stock in a couple of days.

LOL, I forgot..those things are just velcro wraps to hold onto pocket screwdrivers. I use the pocket screwdrivers, to adjust the reticle on the Eotech, to tighten down the ARM 40LSP, tighten down the detachable handle, and for opening a can of soda (I have short nails).

I bought a bunch of them at Leevalley woodworking online.

Nice work. How much smaller is the entry stock?

I don't have an A2 stock to compare, but according to Bushmaster's website, the Stubby/Entry stock is 3.25inches shorter than the A2.

I suppose the A1 stock would be possible (it is 5/8in) shorter than the A2, but I didn't think of it at the time when I bought the buttstocks.

I just ended up seeing this thread. If you want to see A2 vs Entry, check out the pic below. The top rifle is my gf's Entry stock, and two rifles down is my A2.
