Some have asked about my Weapons racks that I used for my Arsenal Bash (https://www.onesixthwarriors.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=40276)

Sorry I don't have specific design plans... It was a visiual idea from my head and I just made it.

Two examples Bi level and Tri Level

It basically consists of 6 to 8 pieces depending on the amount of levels... 3 Levels is max for the height of the soldiers

You can see the Basic Idea behind it. two sides and then the dowl rods for the racks themselves. I took an M-4 to the Hobby Shop and found suitable sizes for the bottom (goes under the trigger handle) and a smaller diameter for the barrel support
I believe the width is a little over one foot and the height is variable depending on the weapons to be mounted....
You don't have to use two different sizes I don't think it would make a difference. Just you want to get a diameter thick enough to support the weight of the amount of weapons you will place on it without sagging, But not too thick that the weapons won't sit right on it.

Lay one of the sides flat on the floor and place a weapon on it at the proper angle and distance from the Bottom (I use about 3 cm. Use a fairly Generic weapon to draw your Marks

The Bottom Bar placement is important but not as much as the TOP BAR PLACEMENT.

As seen in the photo Above the handles all Line up But the Front Sights are different placement depending on the weapon.

After choosing the weapon you will use for a guide Place it on one of the wooden Sides and Mark the Place you will drill the holes.

Here we have an example of the Spacing from one level to the next.

Here is an example of spacing with a Variety of weapons in mind.

Once the holes are marked clamp the Left and right sides together and Drill the holes using the correct side drill for the size Rods. Make sure the Rods fit SNUG. Slide the rods through and Pull the sides to either end of the rods Apply a bit of wood Glue and let it fully Cure.

You can also Knotch the rods so that the weapons will fit down in the knotch Especially the barrels...

Another thing you can do (not Shown) is to get a small piece of wire and attach one end to the right side using a SCREW EYE and run the wire through the Trigger guards and attach it to the other side (can't have people running off with the weps....

I hope this helps sorry for such informal directions...

None at the moment. I have been out of the loop for a bit with 1/1 responsibilities. I am working on a few Ideas but nothing in reality at the moment.

I would love to try making a few of these. Can you please give me slightly more detailed instructions and measurements.

I am still in the process of gathering enough of an inventory of arms to be able to fill an armory display similar to this one.
