Calling SSG 69 Owners!

So I've been working with a couple of guys on making a CNC milled aluminium magazine housing for the SSG 69. The original was plastic and tended to crack. Adrian at the Surrey Gunsmith has also made one but I, along with several others, have messaged him and left phone messages to no avail (several weeks ago now).

I've just ordered the second 3D printed version of the model. Once that arrives and I can test for fit and function we'll go ahead with CNC production. Not sure on a timeframe as of yet but will update as and when.

If anyone would be interested in one of the CNC versions when they're finished then let me know! I don't have a cost as of yet and I wouldn't like to speculate but we'll keep it as low as possible!

So with thanks to a few guys over on the Stalking Directory, the V2 prototype fits like a charm! Some small changes have been made to the model that will be incorporated in the final 3D printed model before we take the plunge with CNC machining.

As ever, pics are better than me droning on!

Mablethorpe is only a few miles away, I always thought I was working class untill I went there.
Mate of mine has an ssg used to go to Bisley and use it along with his k98, the steyr was a very nice piece of kit.
Sadly partly because of the firearms laws in the UK he moved to Austria so he could keep and add too his collection of interesting items.

Well I think we’re there! Tested the third iteration of the 3D model today and apart from one small change that has already made the fit is perfect.

If anyone would like one of the CNC versions then please PM me!
 
That’s a possibility. We figured we’d get this out of the way as a proof of concept. Watch this space!
We just did an AICS conversion on a Remington 700 , binned the floor plate and trigger guard , funtions and looks okay I think.

Et voila!

A few changes have been made to the model. Hopefully the rest of the batch will be with me before too long. They’ll be vapour honed and anodised dark grey to match the receiver.

Looks tidy. Are you aware that AI mag conversion is already available..... if pricey?

Yeah, I’ve seen those (cheers!). We wanted to be able to use the original magazines. It may be possible to adapt this one to take AICS mags in the future.

The Styria one is also made of steel do weighs a ton!
