I had some walnut leftover from a previous project, and when I saw the one that SgtAr15 made I decided I would try one myself. What do you think?





OOPS! Edited to add the pictures

Yeah it does. I just wanted to see if I could make one! It would probably fire one if it was already in the chamber though. This rifle is kept "at the ready" in my bedroom.

Loading your gun? What, are you crazy? Are you suggesting that we might have to actually defend ourselves and kill something? Sweet Jesus, what has the world come to that you can't display a fine piece of machinery like an AR-15 without having to actually purchase bullets for it.

Just my own persoanl opinion here, but....

Instead of the "walnut mag", I would have taken a USGI 30 rd mag, filled it with something to make it solid (Bondo, Plaster of Paris, etc), secured it to the base and used that to mount the AR on (might need to mill or chisel a slot at the correct angle so the rifle sits level).

I like this Idea and my just have to give it a try if I ever have a mag go bad on me. The walnut was scrap, none of my mags are. Of course if someone would like to send me one to play with...
