Hi there,

 

I have a stock below I want to convert into a paintball marker.  I want to poll what I should do given the materials I have to work with.  I want something that will eventually sell, so popular opinion is what will win the decision. 

 

I have a semi auto mech vibe (enmey) that I am inserting into the center stock below (VZ 24 used in ww2 by germans, stock was shot by enemy and then was decommissioned for drill purposes)

Option 1: Cut off bayonet lug, turn it into a garand inspired build:

5488d1380204492-m1-garand-rifle-m1rifle.

Option 2: 

Although its an incorrect action (semi instead of bolt) turn it into a K98 for looks alone. I will most likely replace the handguard with a k98 ish one and keep the mauser sight shown. 

 

PS. The top stock I will be converting to a K98 pb marker as per my other bolt action sniper build (see sig).  The bottom will be used to restore a real firearm. The top and middle stocks being drill purpose makes them unable to be safely used for putting on firearms (due to damage/tolerances etc), so it is ethical to use these for pb purposes.

As much as I would hate to see a 98 all frankensteined into a paintball marker, I've had the thought of putting an eNMEy into a K98 myself. Go for it.

No k98 parts here.  Too expensive to use for a PB marker.  They run $300 here in Canada. This stock is a VZ24.  The K98's older brother.  And this one WAS used in the war, then decommissioned to drill training use since it was shot in the stock. (considered unsafe to fire with a compromised stock)

 

Thanks for the vote!

I say M1 since I think they look better, plus it'll be semi auto so if you're going for realistic it will be. Bonus positive, it will be easier to sell because COD kiddies.
