    im wondering how you go about making a standard floorplate, to a hinged floorplate. also how would it be latched? i would rather build my own, than buy one.

    I have not done this myself In the past I had an older gunsmith do it for me but he is long gone so I will do one this next month or when the ice melts off of my shop. I will weld (bronze weld) a rectangular piece to the front of the floor plate then mill a slot in the trigger guard to take it. Drill a pivot pin. the floor plate should have interference pieces ground off the underside. It should pivot and fit fine. Check other trigger guards (see Brownells and make a latch like them) this is the way I will try to work it. It seems that this is the way it was done for me before.

    Roger, I've got just what you need. I do all the gunsmithing work for Tennessee Gun Parts. We have a hinge and latch to convert a standard floorplate to hinged. We also sell a kit that duplicates the German latch (has the long lever that runs lengthwise under the floorplate) You can get in touch with myself or Layne at Tennesse Gun Parts if you would like any more info.

    I ran across this book that outline a "how-to" on this project. I found this book on eBay, but if you can pick it up anyplace else it would be worth your while!!! Good luck!
