Reader Goblirschrolf wanted a gunstock mount for his Minolta Maxxum 9000 and 400mm tele lens, but he didn’t want to spend a lot of cash for it. Camera gunstocks used to be pretty big twenty or thirty years ago but can be a touch hard to find now. A little time in the shop and a foot or two of electrical tape later Goblirschrolf wound up with this rig.
Some might ask, “Can’t you just go buy one?” Yes, yes you can, but that’s missing the point. This stock is custom-fit for its purpose, and Goblirschrolf probably had a lot of fun fashioning it. Plus he can freak out old people if he flashes it real fast and looks suspicious — that makes it all worthwhile.
