i can't even begin to tell you how much easier it is with my front hand not moving like crazy and now that it is steady! I got a couple of kills and instantly worth the $25 I spent to make it.

    Wish I had that much space to play in instead of the 15 x 5 ft I have but my wife would kill me if I moved my setup to the lounge room

    Always play with the lights off, that way you don't look ridiculous as nobody can see you, and tracking works better - Win Win. I forgot to close the blinds one day and my neighbour was asking my other half if I had taken up Zumba as she saw me jumping around waving my arms in the air.

    @LordQuake, I was thinking the same thing... I'm about to migrate my VR to the living room which is easily looked into from the street. I think the blinds will be down even though VR is cool, I'm not when I'm playing!

    only people ever see me playing is my kids and my wife in an all black room with a fake wall built in front of the window for my projector screen... my wife knows I'm a geek... so i could care less what I look like.  lol

    all I got left to do is paint it all black...but it won't stop raining.

    You should lower the grip side so that sits at least half an inch beneath the stock sided/first controller. 
    Also, when inserting the controller into the holes, does it go all the way in and is resting underneath the trigger, or did you fill the edge of the rim so it's thinner and props up the controller slightly so that you're finger is not on both the trigger and the pipe simultaneously?

    You could also do with some hooks on the controller piping for convenience.

    can't lower it. then my fingers would hit the bottom of the ypipe and I wouldn't be able to grip it.  when you don't need to move you can grip it in several different places.  1. beneath the controller and anywhere on the bottom underneath the ypipe and pvc.  don't have to have your hand on the front controller 24/7

    I have foam in the pvc where the controllers go in to hold them since the controller handles aren't round. 

    what you mean hooks on the controller piping?

    Can u still press the grip buttons or have u cut a groove for them to slide in?

    Im trying to use an adjustable walking stick as the main body as it has holes already drilled the whole length of it and already has a handle that lookes like a stock. Just need to find a cup thing to bolt onto it thats not to invasive in my hand.

    Apparently you missed the TMNT adult PJ Pants.  Ten cool points for the themed pants alone.

    Nice work. Been waiting for someone to do a prototype. Wasn't sure the piping approach would work.

    does it work well with the sniper rifle in dead and buried? 

    whenever i try and use that thing, when i hold it up to look through the scope, it feels all unnatural like its too long and being held 2 feet away from my chest
    But it could buy me a boat
    It could buy me a truck to pull it
    It could buy me a Yeti 110 iced down with some silver bullets

    It looks similar to my Vive stock.



    Ive been using this for months now and couldn't play Onward without it. Made from spare pipe it cost me nothing and I filed and glued the parts together.

    That looks awesome @Imeleon.
    Looks like I'll be taking a trip to Wickes at the weekend.
    Love the bipod. Maybe add some location clips for it.

    Got to say this is the best I've seen so far and being black is just perfect.

    I may once I get more funds buy one of these.

    some pretty inventive people out there. 
    I have the bipod bolted quite tight so it folds back up and stays there pretty well. 
    But some spring clips to lock them back into could be an idea. 
    Bit of advice if you do make one, tape it together till you find the best size of bits for you. 
    Once the cement sets, which is seconds, there's no going back.
