Now that I got the E&S CTR stock in, I figured that now is as good a time as any to show off the custom HK416 I’ve been building for my CAG sniper kitbash. I’m not going to give a full breakdown yet as I don’t consider it to be fully finished, so I’m just going to focus on the stock.
The Larue cheek riser was taken off of a flagset rifle, as was the Prone Optimization Device (POD) pictured at the bottom. The riser fits quite well, though I may see myself needing to glue it in place eventually. The POD doesn’t seem to fit though, so I’ll need to do some light sanding on that. Both will need a layer or two of matte black paint, though with the riser I intend to do a custom paint job in Multicam Black.
Once I get to remaking my CAG recce M110, I’ll give the stock pictured here with both the riser and POD to it, whilst the HK416 gets a CTR with just the riser. That one I’ll likely source from the E&S 26040B figure, which already has one in that exact configuration. Sure I’ll have to do more repainting, but it’d be much cheaper than getting two whole rifles. I’m still trying to look into what colors I’d need to replicate the pattern, and how to create a stencil to trace and cut the shapes on masking tape, so any advice in regards to that would be appreciated
As for what further changes I’ll make, the offset Docter RDR will be replaced with an RMR attached to a modified aimpoint T1 mount. The DAM M600 sight will be replaced by an E&S version, though I’m still attempting to decide whether to have the pressure pad replaced with a picatinny version or keep the one with an adhesive backing. The PEQ-15 will be replaced by one of the black NGALs from the upcoming HK433 sets. The Vortex scope will stay on, until one of the newer 1-8 or 1-10 models get made.
