Hey guys. I've been on /fo/ for some time, contributing to various threads. So I come asking for advice and offering a possibility of cool things one day.

See, I own a fabrication and design business. We're small, you haven't heard of us. We do custom orders.
I'm tired of that. Waiting for people to come to me with ideas. So I'm taking my company and skills and working with things I have a passion for. My hobbies: guns and prepping

Right now I'm working on a buttstock for the AR platforms. I've got the big picture hammered out and what I want it to do. But now I want all your input. If you could have any attachment to an AR-15 to help survival or make it more useful, what would it be?
And I don't mean just cool attachments. The buttstock I'm designing is going to be legal in every state, New York especially (the problem being the pistol grip law now in effect). But it would mean that rifles without detachable box magazines could have this stock and not be considered an "assault rifle". And beyond being legal, it'll have an adjustable cheek pad that can be used by lefties and righties. The stock will also be hollow and waterproof, similar to Henry's AR-7 so that you can put various tools and batteries inside. That's the type of stuff I'm asking for. What do you NEED in your equipment?

If it's practical and doable and I feel that I could sell it, I might make it happen. So what do you guys want?

an AR chambered for a pistol round that could stop a grizzly.

it would probably be easier to make a socom .458 revolver than a .454 casull ar though...

You're a sick unit.

Unfortunately I'm no gunsmith. I can't do anything like that. I work with polymers and carbon fiber and that type of stuff. So I can do attachments and modifications to the non-rifle parts of the rifle. Nothing with barrels (yet) and nothing with the upper receiver.

That's exactly what my focus is on. I was wondering if there's anything else.

Not everything can fit in a buttstock, so we're working on plans for another part that is taken for face value and ignored in one aspect.

anything else?

Make an ar-15 sword.

Like some silly shit out of an anime movie.

A carbon fiber handguard with customizable rails that's stable enough to mount a sight on. I'd buy one.

One thing that would be pretty crazy is to incorporate some kind of Bluetooth powered stock display.

Put a little screen and a tiny Android device on the stock, and an IR laser on the front. Paint a target and have it pop up on the screen, as well as any other screen nearby belonging to people on the same team. Totally silent tactical communication system.

The hardware already exists, so you can just use a regular LED screen, a Rockchip, Bluetooth transmitter and a digital compass or something for the stock, and a regular IR rangefinder laser up front. The only thing that you would have to spend money creating would be the program, but almost any electrical engineer with a right to call themselves competent could do that and you would probably want to hire one to give you a good hardware design anyway.

Plus it would be Bluetooth so you could sell a headset version too, but apparently soldiers don't like that or find it useful.

Kind of like that land warrior thing the U.S. military is trying out, but not fucking bloated and stupid and not in your eyes when you are trying to shoot and stuff unless you want it there. A cheaper, quicker, simpler and less invasive version of it.

Androids are glitchy as fuck. I wouldn't trust one with my life. If you're going to put computer tech on a gun, it should ALWAYS work under normal circumstances.

Also Bluetooth would be too easy to hack/block/fuck up to be on military tech. nb

That is mostly because any idiot with a computer can write programs for Android, and even a whole lot of professional developers take a big steamy shit on the best practices provided by Android when they create an application. It is not inherently unstable.

>>12277

Type "application level security" into Google and drink a nice warm cup of shut the fuck up. It's not any easier to block Bluetooth than it is to block any other kind of radio device, why do cops and military personnel use radios if they are so easy to fuck with? Why wouldn't they want what is basically a radio like one they already have, but able to transmit information non verbally, with the push of a button, without making any noise whatsoever? Are you dumb?

Because you are dumb and you are just pulling silly shit out of your ass even though you clearly have no idea what the fuck you are talking about. There is nothing "cheap" about Android or Bluetooth. They are technologies, not cars or kitchen appliances or some other shit with a fancy brand name, they are popular because they work well.

Maybe Apple should make an AR-15 stock for people like you...

>>12296

It's really not even a big issue, it would be just as easy to put in a chip running a Linux kernel, but more difficult to develop software.You would be able to optimize it to the level that important shit in cars and airplanes is optimized to that way though.

The thing is, if you know what you are doing and follow best practices, Android is fast and stable enough to get the job done anyway, there is a difference in speed but it is generally imperceptible to human senses unless you are doing anything processor intensive, a few extra cycles on a processor that runs millions of them every second.

A highly optimized system is just not necessary for simple shit like calculating readings from a rangefinder, Bluetooth and a compass and putting them on a low resolution 2d display. If you want to stream 1080p movies on your rifle stock or something then go fuck yourself.

I don't think OP wants to spend lots of money on a big enterprise level software project like that either, and it would make it harder for other people to develop software and devices for the stock he builds as well.

I want a scope mounted on my AR with a second mounting opposite the primary mounting so I can mount an AK on the scope mounted on my AR. Out of bullets? Who the hell has time to reload fresh magazines? Flip that bitch and keep cappin
