got bored with the M1 carbine...

Had an extra AR grip and M1 carbine stock laying around and decided to put them to some use today. I painted the stock black, screwed and epoxyed the grip to the stock, added a tac-light and touched it up useing a bungee cord to hold an extra mag to the stock. How's this for a tacticool M1 carbine? Here's proof you shouldn't drink and play with firearms. :cheers2:

Only one suggestion.

Replace the bungee cord with cammo duct tape.

Shouldn't the pistol grip be butted up against the trigger housing?

I was thinking the same thing about grip being a little far from the trigger. I was looking at my M1 Carbine the other day and was wondering if anyone might make a M4 style stock for the M1 carbine. I looked online the other day for no luck.
