One of my overseas customers sent me a pic of his HS2000 with some items I sent him. He is a bodyguard type for VIPs and I have to tell you I wish I could have the same setup. This is a ported HS2000 with some extras I though some folks would enjoy.

No disrespect intended to anyone, I am speaking from personal preference only, and nothing more....

I dont like it, Its a pistol, you dont need all the extras it has. Id take the pistol, get me a nice shoulder rig, 2 extra mags, 1 in the gun and Id take that to a gunfight.. not what is pictured above. I could imagine, firing from cover this would be a bitch to move with.

Again, Im not bashing anyone, just giving my personal opinion

Wow that's an interesting setup there. I like it though.

Yesireebob, I enjoy that greatly! :D

I saw a shoulder sling like that on the History Channel. Gangsters would hang a sawed-off rifle or shotgun from their shoulder, under a jacket with a strap like that so it could be brought up quickly. Looks like the same principle on this pistol.

What kind of grips are those? They look interesting.

I have to agree with pd40. That looks ridiculous. As for functionality, if what you need is a submachine gun then why not use one?

Well the tactical rail magazine holder is kind of a cool idea.

Well it's not my hogue grip, I'd assume it's the pachymar or whatever grip.

Man dont complain just look at the different setup and enjoy. Its not for every one but with the stock the xd is more accurate at longer ranges. This is another option for those overseas, the more options the less someone can say there are no aftermarket accessories for the xd and hs2000. Try looking for ruger, tuarus, sw ****. The xd, 1911 and glock have more stuff made for it than most other pistols out there.

Interesting set up. I am not sure how practical it is, unless that HS/XD he has is a full auto version. I once saw a video of a CZ-75 full auto, I am sure it could use a stock like that. Nice work BTW, Ajames.

They make a "carbine" kit for the Steyr's too. Doesnt float my boat, but cool nonetheless.

Sorry, my mistake. I just know you work on XDs and thought you may have license to do this sort of work. There are a few licensed smiths in my area who do special jobs for LEO, SpecOps and federal agencies, thought you may be one in your part of the country. You should see some of the toys they play with at the range. :D One is even nice enough to let you try some of his NFA toys (under close supervision) if you are a good little boy.

Cool rig. Thanks for posting it James.

Under a jacket, in a bodyguard situation requiring concealment I think that rig would be plenty "useful". It could be produced very quickly, and with the shoulder stock and foregrip it would be more effective than the pistol alone.

thanks for the neet looking set up.
after owning several stocked broomhandles,lugars, High powers, and others over the years . i think this rig would be hard to use from the shoulder. the stock attaches at athe botton of the grip and is stright from there. your hand would be above your shoulder when you grip the pistol.
i believe it would be very hard to grip the grip safty from this position much less line your eyes up with the sights. the mag change would also require you to remove the mag from the light rail and try not to get tangled in the lanyard.
just my .02
