I'm trying to find a replacement for photopoint, and Excite has a photo album that works very similar. I'm trying it out. Here's the whole album:

Looks like it works.
Here's a pic of my "NON-GUN" Cavalry Arms lower, mocked up as a complete carbine, to show a buttstock shortened by 1.5".

Prototype A1 length yellow lower:

Forgive My ignorance, but what is with the plastic lower set up? I like the look (Dewalt logo is priceless.) But what is this all for? I might be crazy(Ok, so that's a "gimmie") but Why,What,Who?

Cavalry arms makes the polymer lowers, in a variety of colors. The owner, Shawn, posts here as GarryOwen. He's a VERY cool fellow, and let me use this particular lower to experiment with. I'm currently residing in California(for only another week and a half or so!!), so this one was filled with plastic and is considered a "Non-Gun". He makes some outrageous stuff.
Check it out at [url]www.cavalryarms.com[/url].

This one was an experiment to reduce the length of pull on the CAV-15 lower, since a couple people have expressed an interest in a shorter buttstock. the standard CAV-15 buttstock is a little longer than an A2 buttstock, and this one is now a little shorter than the A1 length.

The Dewalt sticker came off my jigsaw, it just seemed right.[:D]

[url]www.castle-arms.com[/url] is selling a special limited run of the CAV-15 lowers complete, with a certificate for the M-4 handguards, as an "accessory" to the LEGP rifle. See the "Limited Edition Group Purchase" section for details, or the Castle Arms website for details...

How'd the Cav-15 shoot?   Any issues?

This particular lower is unable to be fired, since it was modified to be a "Non-Gun" for legal reasons(It's probably the only CAV-15 in the PRK). I can't forsee any problems whatsoever, it's an extremely well thought out design, and is made very well.
The rear wall of the buffer tube is still a ways forward of the buttpad, so shortening the stock will cause NO changes in the mechanical functioning of the rifle.

Ok, don't laugh but, how do you get photos posted on this board? I have a scanner and everything but when it comes to anything more than scanning a pic and sending it to someone via e-mail I am lost. I am not really a computer guy but this is turning out to be a pretty intersting form of entertainment. Any one care to take the time and try an explain the procedure?

Your picture must first be online somewhere, like photopoint.com, or your own homepage, or in some type of photo album, as shown here.
Then you have to cut and paste the exact location of the picture (the url)to the reply box, and use {img} before the url, and {/img} after the url. Except use [ and ] instead of { and }, and erase the "http://" (If I type out the exact code, it'll try to post the type as a picture, and won't work.) in case I thoroughly confused you, see: [url]www.ar15.com/forums/help/code.html[/url]

your photo code would look like this:


Except of course use brackets instead of the { and }.

Hope this helps...

That just looks really cool! I wish I had the room and the tools to play around with that sort of stuff myself. I'm good with working with tools and my hands and have done a lot of my own gun smithing over the years and would really like to get into the building part of a rifle or its components. That is just to cool!

I like it!

I'd much rather have a short buttstock that I could lengthen with a recoil pad than a long buttstock that I couldn't modify.

Testing to see if mine shows up.

There it is. That is my second CAV-15. The first was a black lower. Mounted a 20" light contour upper on it. That thing runs flawless. I have set it up as a .22 rifle right now. The OD green one was just put together. It is as tight as anything I have. Will put some rounds down range this weekend.

Has the Cav lower been tested by buttstocking someone senseless?

I'm not volunteering, mind you, but inquiring minds want to know

I wish I could be there for the shoot. I'll have to just be patient, and wait the 1.5 weeks until I get out there for good.

Treetop, thanks for the help, I'll get it figured out now. Thanks again.
