Paging @SpookyDan to the white courtesy phone.
Looking for feedback if anyone has ever used this? Stumbled onto this site at 3am today lol. Looks pretty awesomee.
Yeah, that is a neat approach. I have never used that exact adapter, but I have used the Hera arms SL8 lower, with an ACR stock.
The ACR stock works well on a G36 style rifle, if you're using optics. The comb height is a little high (for me, at least) to get a comfortable view of the irons with a normal G36 top rail. Rails with higher sights, or optics are fine though.
While I like the approach, I am not enthused with the fact that is a white nylon that has been painted. As the description notes, the finish will wear. I guess its the only option for a gun with a real G36 style rear; for SL8's there are stock-block options to do it now, which I would favor. And of course, the Hera arms lower that I mentioned.
Own: HK91, SR9, SP5k, G36k, HK416, P30L, 2x P8, 2x P8A1, USP9
Future: Done, until HK comes out with something new & nifty. Might start building an FNH collection.
Yea that was a concern of mine was the dye. Anyone know how Bostic coats his plastic? The items i got from him seem pretty durable.
Since i have a non-stock block option I would have to go with it if i wanted a ACR stock.
My parts are made with the same process and from the same supplier that Tom uses. All of his SLS/MJF parts start out as white or gray and are dyed then painted also.
The HP Multijet "grey" is uniform color throughout. It is extremely close to the factory G36 receiver as is. The binder used in the printing is colored and there is no chance another color could be revealed by a scratch.
White nylon SLS prints dyed black and painted have a pretty low chance of being scratched to the point the white would be revealed.
The HP parts usually have a good enough resolution they could be used without any surface treatment, but the are generally a bit more spendy in price. If you want a 100% match then any adapter is going to have to be sanded and painted.
I have the ACR stock on my UMP clone....
