FITTING A SHOULDER STOCK
It is quiet possible to construct a simple folding shoulder stock for the BSP machine gun using nothing more than a modified 3/8" ratchet spanner and a length of steel tubing! The following pages illustrate how this is done.
Folding Shoulder Stock.
The shoulder stock is assembled from a 3/8" ratchet spanner, a length of 5/8" round tube, a section of V2" box tube, four washers, a cotter pin, and a length of 1" x 1/8" steel plate.
ASSEMBLING THE SHOULDER STOCK
1. 3/8" ratchet spanner.
3. V2" x 16g box section tube.
V2" tube r
Insert tube onto ratchet and retain using high strength bearing adhesive.
3/8" Ratchet spanner. The ratchet spanner is cut down and shortened until it has an overall length of around 4 - 5'
Slide washers onto tube.
A series of washers are placed over the V2" box section. These may consist of either four standard 'light' washers or two to three thick 'heavy' washers. Either way, the stack of washers must result in a combined length of 4 - 5mm.
