US made Gripstick and Bolt conversion services

Postby panaceabeachbum » Sun Jul 30, 2006 4:21 pm

I am manufacturing one piece grip stick housings for the semi 42 build which use the original grip panels and utilize unmodified ar-15 fire control group. The housings are available in the white or anodized black. These grip housings along with the 3 piece fire control group count as 4 US made parts towards 922r compliance. Here is a link to a few pics and more info on the grip housings http://www.thompsonmachine.net/42grip.htm .

I am also offering conversion of the original 42 bolt assembly to semi auto configuration with a one piece firing pin and a needle bearing feed roller for smooth operation. The wieght of the O-1 tool steel firing pin is kept light to prevent slam fires , its light wieght also eliminates the need for a heavy return spring to help insure positive ignition with hard military primers. A delrin support is also used in the ejector tube to support as much of the firing pin as possible.

Bolts are available completly finished or assembled with the final clean up of the welds yet to be done for a slight cost savings. Individual parts are also available for folks that want to complete the work themselves. All parts are machined on precision cnc macheniry and all welding is done with proper jigs to insure the best possible part. Here is a link to a step by step tutorial with lots of pics so you can get an idea of just whats involved in the conversion. http://www.thompsonmachine.net/42bolt.htm

42 Griphousing in the white $110

Your bolt converted to semi configuration as pictured above $140

I have been searching here but haven't found a pic of how the grip attaches to the receiver. Pics anyone? Thanks!

Top pic in thread-the rear of the grip mounts as usual,using the split pin.The front piece shown is removable,using the allen head bolt shown.You just hook it over the rear of the ejection port and tighten it down.The dust cover would need to be slightly modified.The clip has a slotted hole that allows slight up and down adjustment.If you need more,let me know,I will try to post some pics of mine. ---bil

Make sure you email him at Richard@thompsonmachine.net. I tried all his other email address' and had no luck until I used this one. He is also modifying my bolt.

Bil, a pic sure would be nice. I like things dumbed down 8) . Do you still have any rivets? If so I would love some. I have a 42 thats welded and now trying to get the final pieces together.

This is great news, PB is doing these again. I'm going to need a few since I haven't got the time to make them myself at the moment.

BTW If you are going to shorten Helix60 It's Heli NOT Helix.

PBB,

Is the $99 sale still on for the 42 gripstick?
