    Default Some BLING for Boondock!!!

    Hi Boondock what do you think of this type of stock for the AF Talon\Condor series rifles? Would this make them more "ergonomic" and user friendly. I'm considdering buying an AF rifle, but i'm looking at different options at the moment.
    Let me know what you guys think.

    AF looks good as it is. I wouldn't go for a stock like that.

    for better shoulder support you can move shoulder pad down. and following designs can work very good.









    this 90fpe .25 condor mod is cool

    GLOCK isn't a good looking weapon according to majorities. but it's the 1 of the most reliable gun in this planet.

    AF is not pretty for sure, but it's compactness and light weight, maintenance free, you can throw bucket of water on it or mess it with mud.. it will still keep working. and with the hard hitting power like that. i mean like THAT...hehe... certainly it's not there just for a sissy look...

    Thats about what i thought the comments would be. I know it does not look good, but would that type of stock make it easier to shoot comfortably??

    As boondock said, its a rough and tumble kind of gun, almost like Ak-47. Most people that had the AF rifles, complained about the "hold" of the gun. Would you buy one if it had a more comfortable stock, and "looked better"???

    Boondock, is'nt the Talontunes butpad from an FX Gladiator or something? I gues it's all a question of personal preference. Do you want a piece of art, or do you want a Mean ,Powerful, Accurate tool??

    Thanks Boondock! I thought as much.
    Does anybody know how much those FX "Butplates" cost, and where to get it from?

    LOL... make it middle of next year.

    The Talon might be ugly, but it does the job it's intended to do.
    I hate the sissy feel of most PCP's. The whole fragile look of most of them just don't work for me. If I want to wash the rifle with a hosepipe, I should be able to it.

    As a hunting rig Talons are great...
