tools needed:
hand drill
various drill bits
welder
grinder
chop saw (hack saw would work)
air cut off wheel (maybe a hack saw would work here also)
files
Filip's/flat head drivers
metering tap
marker
sand paper
hole punch
hammer
starter punch

materials needed:
1"by 1" steel square tubing (13.xx home depo for over 5 feet of it)
1"by x steel flat bar (7.xx for over 4 feet of it a local nut bolt place)
sheet of 1/2 mm rubber (2.xx sold by the pound)

the problem:
i first found a space were i wanted to mount a forend grip/rail but the ATI stock wasn't flat on the bottom and i didn't want to mount the rail crocked. The reading Ive done on here told of 2 seclusions to mounting a forend rail/under rail system on a ATI stocked 995
1:forend rail system for the storm but with a price tag of around 70$ (way to much money for a 200$ rifle)
2:another member made a little spacer (didn't look strong enough and with my luck it would brake at the worst time)

the solution:
After putting my 995 on its side and finding were i wanted to mount my rail

step 1: I took my measurements for length and front and rear hight (since were I'm mounting it is on a grade) they ended up being 3 inches long with a front hight of 1 inch and a rear hight of 1/2 inch



step 2: cut a 3 inch peace of square tubing and marked the front hight and rear hight on the peace i cut and drew a straight line between the marks (i was lucky it ended up being that easy)

step 3: charged the air compressor and cut the straight line i just made with the cut off wheel



step 4: cut a 3 inch peace of the 1" flat stock



step 5: welded the flat stock to the modified square tubing

step 6: ground weld off, filed all end and corners and then hit with sand
paper







step 7: drill corresponding holes in bottom with rail you intend to use



step 8: drill holes in top for mounting

step 9: drill corresponding holes in bottom of ATI stock for the holes you just drilled in the top of your spacer

step 10: cut two 1" by 3" strips in the 1/2mm sheet of rubber, hole punch holes into it to fit between your ATI stock and spacer to account for the curved bottom

step 11: install

what it looks installed and finished







total time spent from design to install: around 2 hrs with tools above
total money spend: around $22
finishing thoughts: with this installed and being held to my ATI stock with 2 bolts with the 2 peaces of rubber acting as grippers/spacers its rock solid and it give me better control over the rifle in the standing and sitting as well as on the move. i would recommend this to any one! thats why I'm taking the time to post this and take the pics ENJOY

p.s sorry about the pics and the links i wanted them to be all on this page with out links but i havent mastered that yet :?
if a mod. would please correct i would like vary much!

EDITED: By PrimalSeal so the pictures show.

Much kudos on the effort and the photos, though its not my style...dont think I'd use a foregrip anyway...bipod likely, but not a grip...

Thanks for the effort Benny, it's all good now. Sorry it took so long for me to get to it, as I have been busy with the Air Show this weekend.

as I have been busy with the Air Show this weekend.
They had the Muskogee air show for the first time in about 4 years this weekend, and for the first time since the early 70's the Blue Angels were the main attraction.

I didnt go, wanted to really bad as I have never seen then perform, but it was either gun or air show, and the gun won out. :shock:
