I donít have pictures showing myself in shooting positions.

Thatís what duct tape is for. :) I'll dig up some target pics.:uhoh:;)

How did you mount the hand stop?
The accessory rail is made be Moís. The OEM synthetic stock I believe is an HSP. I milled a slot to fit the rail. The stock in section has a metal skeleton. The skeleton was drilled & taped for machine screws and the accessory rail was secured in place with countersunk screws.
