You've just read about the mods Gazmosis had to make, to make it fit his. Mine was a aluminium pipe build, so a little different.

I bought a abs folding stock but when I closes the stock the sides of the wishbone did not clear the magazine area enough to properly lock the stock in its closes position. So I am a little disappointed . Thanks,  Joey

You need to alter the front locking notch to accept the sterling stock without risk of breaking the dds resin.

I know what you are talking about.  I bought a completed doopy doos e-11 blaster but how do you sand down the notch area? Any suggestions?  You cut out the outlined square and put in an aluminum piece and then cut to fit the locking mechanism?

Yes, I originally drilled a hole in the stock hinge area and inserted my hobby tube. Worked great! Unfortunately, the first time I fully locked the stock the piece holding the stock locking mechanism in place broke off so I knew I had to add metal in there some how.. I also went with a real sterling end cap without risk of breaking the DDs resin version.

You'll need a small file or Dremil to complete the excavation. Once the metal is in place, fill will 2 part putty and sand down. Works great.

Can you send the picture of the cut I need to make in order to instal the aluminum piece for the notch. I can't find it.  Please include any measurements and tools I need in order to make the cut. My email is: Jpjn45@gmail.com

Here's another option for you Joey. See what Banelives85 does who successfully installed an apex folding stock onto a doopydoos resin e-11 blaster.

 

 

Hope that helps! cheers!
