yea best thing to do is just cut outa wood and use sand paper, u never said if u cannon was comnust, pneu, or hybrid so if it is a pneu i sujest hollowing out the back end of the stock atound the tigger and you could then fit your blowgun in it, fill that with expandable foam when dome and just sand off extras and paint over it.

lol randome thought and i saa your topic. good luck!

right on zeigs!

whipped this up in about 3hrs, havent got any bondo on me, but i would cover the whole stock with it, sand down and then paint it :D

Image

of course before i add the bondo i would have to rig it to fit the cannon. use a router to add a grove for the barrel, bore a spot for the blow gun and ur away :lol:
its two pieces of pine screwed together. i havent glued it yet, but this will let me construct my cannon first and then just put the two pieces of the stock on either side of the cannon and then fix the whole lot together.
