Toth Mold/Die Inc. a Cleveland, Ohio based injection molding & mold making facility was approached by Christie & Christie Enterprises, Inc. also of Cleveland, Ohio with a concept to create a custom polymer 1022 Ruger Rifle “Super Stock” to replace the original wood stock. President, Ken Christie’s objective was to create a “Super Stock” with added features not available on the original wood stock.
Toth Mold/Die Inc. enlisted the services of RBD Design and Consulting to assist with the part and mold design. The new rifle stock design added the following features: two water tight storage compartments, three mounting rails, vertical grip, recoil pad, seven position adjustable rear stock, and a ½” cheek riser. The polymer Toth Mold/Die Inc. selected was EMS Grivory GV-5H, a 50% glass-filled resin.
The rifle “Super Stock” consists of 22 molded parts. In all, ten individual molds were created to produce the parts. The project completion took a total of six months from concept to finish.
Toth Mold/Die Inc. has recently updated their website www.tothmold.net to include a product development page which enables viewing of the steps taken to develop a product from start to finish. Toth Mold/Die Inc. can provide all of these services in assisting you with your project.
