why not just cut a rough shape of the stock from wood, then sand it down. i know its time consuming but you can customize it easier to suit your needs.

Use PVC. Most of a stock is cylindrical anyway.

you could just drill (if you have a drill) out a hole to encase the spark plug about 2-3" deep, then put a hose clamp around that to secure it. ill draw up a diagram of what i mean...

that would be the hose clamp. the hose clamp should keep it in place if you drilled the hole accurately enough. and if it doesn't fit perfectly, i would suggest stuffing foam in there, then using a hose clamp.

If I were you I would see if I couldn't arrange things in a so it was a bit more compact. I would be easier to handle and the stock would probably be easier to make...just a thought...

The only way to do that would be to have an over under. I don't want an elbow that close to my head with 500+ psi in it.[
