Little update on the short carabine. Need to figure out something for the stock. Any ideas?


It looks great so far. As for ideas, maybe try cutting off the cocking handle and that hump at the top rear of the broom handle grip and build up the square piece from your above concept design out of 2 part putty and run a length of pvc or wood dowel thru it and into the blaster body. Fill the void inside with resin/epoxy to give the stock attachment more purchase. If you donít want to go inside, you could build up the putty around the cocking mechanism but that will only give you about 1/2Ē of stock to hold onto the blaster body, which probably wonít last very long before a drop or bump breaks it off.

The RL base gun has a carbine version (Mouser C-96 Carbine) but the stock attached near the butt end of the broom handle grips.
Hereís a pic if youíre unfamiliar and donít feel like googling   ;)


For this method I would probably try cutting out a section of the handle ďtangĒ (Iím using knife terminology here cus Iím unsure if thereís an actual term for it on a firearm) between the grips then just shape the stock with a bit to fit in between the grips and shape that to fit the lines of the broom handle grip.

Not sure if any of that is helpful to you, but itís the best suggestions Iíve got. Plus I wanted to get a comment in here to make keeping up with the progress a bit easier.  :D

Might be just me, but it looks like it needs a stock similar to an A180.

After a huge overthinking phase, i decided to leave the c96 path and look for something different. I came out with this. Lads, I present you the DL44 CSSC (counter sniper short carabine). Still working on the name. Any suggestion is welcome.

ththis is a sketch made with the phone, but the idea is more or less this one. Thoughts?

The DL44 carabine had a little stop. Need to add a stabby. And I fell in love with the imperial field knife.


It's form the Solo art book and was supposed to be the field knife issued to the mudtroopers. I had to have one.


I'm starting to have a lot of imperial stuff on my mando 🤣

Now I'm sorta sad to have missed that run - I like me some real metal stuff :)
