    I decided I didn’t like the thin Saber Tactical one that is currently available. So I decided to make one using the Dreamline chassis bag ride as an inspiration.

    The first one came out o.k. I’ll see how it works out and tweak it as needed. 
    Here’s what I got. Made it out of 3/16” aluminum and it required a custom aluminum after market butt pad, picked it up on EBay.

    That’s way cool, I’m on the fence about my bag rider and I like yours better!

    Nice! Did you paint it or powder coat or cerakote?

    This was just a first attempt so I just painted it Flat Black. 

    The reason I needed the Aluminum butt pad was so I could thread the screws. The rubber butt pad wouldn't have worked. But what I'm finding out is that it's not stable because the Impact only uses one mounting screw to hold the butt pad. I may need to drill and tap another screw into the butt pad to stabilize it to the gun.

    We'll see what I can figure out.

    I made my own bag rider too. I got a hold of the Saber Tactical rear mounting piece which made the rear of the bag rider adjustable vertically but also made it a lot easier to mount securely.

    Sorry to sidetrack but…

    What kind of grip are you using? It looks like a finger groove laminate. I would love to find something like that in a lefty version.

    Here's the one I came up with .  I didn't make it but it works good and it hugs the bag better than the original one .plus it came free with a used  k&l I bought off here .

    Made out of high grade aluminum. Works very well. Manufactured in South Africa. Beautifully made.

    It’s a custom Left hand target style grip that I made.

    So I was having an issue with the butt pad rocking or being tilted out due to the fulcrum effect of the bag rider not having the grip as part of the front support made it unstable. (As Impact owners know there is only a friction screw that holds the butt pad on.)

    so to solve this issue I installed a stainless dowel pin to fit into the magazine bracket that sit inside the rear butt side plates. 

    That solved the problem perfectly! Now the bag rider and butt pad is rock solid!

    Do you have any issue with your bag rider moving when you put pressure closer towards the grip?
