Greetings,
I started another thread so as not to step on anyones toes or hijack a thread. Anyway I am fairly new to the HP 995 (it is awesome so far), and I decided to get one with an ATI and mod it a little. I liked the folding stock that was done by Wild Bill and did something similar. Also I didn't like the short factory rail so made one the length of the gun.

The HK sights just arrived and I haven't tried them yet. If they work well or not, I want to get a red dot. My question is if anyone knows of a decently priced low mounting red dot that would be able to cowitness with this HK sight set.

Here are some pics with the installed sights.

Yeah it can be shot closed right-handed, the folded stock does not interfere with the trigger finger.
And indie if I get tired of it and start a new project, I'll drop you a PM.

If it's the VZ58 wire stock, yes you can shoot it with the stock folded. looks good mike. go to ebaybanned.com and the eotech clone will mate up perfect and cowitness, the magnifier works great also. i just ordered an aimpoint with the offset mount for my project 007 995. that site has A LOT of iron sights to choose from, i chose the HK type for mine. again, looks great, we will have to have a pose off when all my parts come in and i get it together. i like them both equally well.

guncats, the LOP of the stock including the chamber where bolt chambers is about 12". Overall is 31".

roadkill, I will have to check out the eotech clone you mentioned. What is the magnifier for, the eotech? And what magnification is it? You actually tried them or just saw them on the site? If you tried, are they bright and do they seem durable since they are clones? And definitely once you get it assembled we need some pics. Next range trip I will try to get a video of this thing being fired.

i have the eotech and the aimpoint clones, they are perfect. i think the magnifier is 4X, but the eotech is just like a real one. durable, over 700 rounds without losing a single zero or any type of shift. these are on "the punisher" you can do a search for the pic i'm not going to hijak. the aimpoint clone i ordered is this one; http://www.airsoftpost.com/matrix-military-type-30mm-green-sight-cantilever-mount-p-26697.html and my buddy has one on his M4gery and it is perfect so i ordered one for the 007, the aimpoint magnifier works perfect on the eotech and on my actual aimpoint on my M4 so i'm sure it will work on the clone. hope that explains

As you asked here is a description with some pictures of what was done to this 995.

I like the fact that it is a one-piece so I went with the ATI. The fact that the factory stock splits in half was a minus to me.

I have also added a green dot that cowitnesses with the irons.



The top is all one piece. I used two 12inch rails and cut to size. The barrel cover and receiver cover are very tight and held together with eight 4-40 x 1/2" nuts and bolts.




The foregrip base is on a tapco AK base that I never used and it fit the contour of the ATI pretty well and was mounted in a way that it cants forward. The thickness of the bottom of the ATI stock is pretty thick and a washer allowed me to tighten the bolt making sure there was no play in the grip.


Since the ATI is one piece it makes it much easier to install a folding mechanism. I cut the buttstock and left myself an inch or so to work with behind the bolt chamber. I then drilled 3/8" hole stright through. That part of the stock is pretty solid but has a couple air pockets on the sides, so I filled them with plumbers epoxy and the whole thing dried to be rock solid.



I then used a 3/8 x2" bolt and ground down the head so it would be totally flush and not interfer with the folding arm. I also ground the 3/8 square nut thinner so it would not protrude too much into the bolt chamber and affect cycling. The 2" bolt was then fitted and ground down to be flush with the nut. Oh also the inside of the chamber was slightly dremeled so that the square nut would grab and not rattle around.



The last part was then to put a thin layer of epoxy on the back and mold the impression of the folding stock to it, so that there would be no play in it once mounted. When I removed it before it dried it wrinkled the face but that part doesnt show anyway after the folding stock is installed.



Also I used belt sander and dremel to flush the bottom of the stock in front of the trigger guard and to trim around the front of the trigger guard.

Anyway that is pretty much it. Not too difficult, and the ATI is very solid to do this on, and it may be a little easier than doing it on the factory stock. Let me know if you need any more pictures to clarify anything.
