I don’t have the tool or know how to do this, but if someone could sell me a bolt tube and advise what other parts I would need besides the Odin Zulu stock would be of great help. I’m 6’5” and I can’t get a sight picture at all. I’ve yet to hit a target accurately with the stock sights and having the stock at its longest setting. I’m thinking this would help a lot but as mentioned I’d need help with parts/tube. Thanks in advance.

Right there with you. I'm pretty close to 7 feet tall. The Odin system looks pretty good but won't extend the stock as much as I would want. Anybody have ideas to help modify the Odin Mod for us unreasonably tall folks?

I'd be surprised if you can't get the LOP you need as the mod is presented. I can tell you that my 6'8" buddy did not use the longest LOP setting on my MFT Minimalist stock.

That said, all you need to go longer is more AR Buffer Tube. OP used a short section he cut from the tube supplied. He could have cut less and clamped behind the bolt stop rather than ahead of it for an easy 3 more inches.

Where can I get one of those straps to lock the gun back after doing the stock change? Also had a question on how the stock pad is adjusted up or down? Didn’t see how this is managed? Let me know and thanks in advance sir!
The rubber buttstock pad plugs into the stock, remove it revealing a set screw to adust the shoulder up/down.

That little strap I use for a locking mechanism. Literally some QD's from some sporting goods store and some strap I stole from a backpack. Just cut it and sewed it myself. :)

so I can just pull the buttstock pad off without damaging the pad, correct? I Then it reveals screws to adjust. Was worried with my luck I pull it off and doesn’t go back on and there goes my $150. ‍♂

Did it once, forgot how I did it!

There's two small holes in the limbsaver pad. In goes a small allen key and it unscrews from the back. You can see all the adjustments in the picture below. :)

Dude thanks I appreciate that, waiting on the hone to get to work. I’ll pm you some additional questions if you don’t mind me asking? Thanks again and can’t wait to have mine finished soon enough!!

If you do an Odin Zulu stock mod, your Sub-2000 will no longer fit in a 17 inch laptop case.

For a bigger bag, consider a Timbuk2 Classic Messenger - LARGE, which you can get on closeout for $55 at eBags. The only style they have left there is a reasonably attractive blue / black color. It explicitly says "San Francisco" on the brand label as extra camouflage for what would be carried inside. :)

You can also buy one new for twice that price at Timbuk2:

Here's an overview video of the features of this bag:


EBay also has some of these listed, so does Google shopping. Be sure to look for the words "Classic Messenger" and "Large".

Measurements:
  • Bottom Width: 19 in
  • Middle Width: 21 in
  • Top Width: 21 1⁄2 in
  • Depth: 7 3⁄4 in
  • Height: 14 3⁄4 in
  • Strap Length: 47 in
  • Strap Drop: 14 1⁄2 in
  • Weight: 2 lbs 3 oz

I used a hone of that style when I modded a buffer tube to install my Minimalist stock. It still took nearly an hour of honing.

Well, my Odin Works Zulu finally landed. I ordered a couple 1 1/8 dingleberry hones (80 & 180 grit) which I hope will make faster work of the Odin supplied buffer tube. I think the 80 grit will make quick work of the project.

How did the dingleberry hone work out?

I have consolidated this thread's discussion into a PDF available at the link below - sort of an instruction manual for a Odin Zulu stock mod to the Sub-2000. The PDF includes the links below where I was shopping for an Odin Zulu to start this project. Missionary, feel free to edit your original post to include this link if you wish - and thanks for your work to get the ball rolling on this important upgrade.

Boom. Done. Nice job on this. I put it up top. :)

Been wondering how long I could waffle without getting called out. Dingleberry hones landed long time back. Zulu stock landed long time back. Laid out Zulu in line with my Minimalist stocked Sub 2000 and waffling commenced.

I'm certain both are superior to factory. But, I think my Zulu is more likely to land on an AR10 project that's slow starting.

In the mean time I bought a handful of buffer tubes to modify for friends. I have not finished the buffer pin locating jig but I've got to hone them before drilling so I'll get on it this week and answer you by Friday.

keep us updated on your progress with the OdinWorks Zulu please! i am about to do the same modification myself!
havent been on the forum lately since the whole pandemic started, but was able to finally finish up my install. Here are a few pics. Was also able to keep the threaded end cap to close off the end. The end has a 3mm screw to remove the buffer spring from the cap then you can keep it on as pictured.

Mando...I totally see what you did there...and it's pretty brilliant. You've got adjustment holes drilled so you can adjust the LOP and it's still compliant with goal of the mod. Nice job. Happy now aren't ya? Have you shot it yet? Tell me you've gotten outside with it?!

I’m so happy with picture sight and now I get a way better feel . Can’t wait to go to the range and test it with the better stock IMO. I’m glad I had done it a lil better but I kinda rushed it and the holes are a lil uneven/out of round or not aligned perfectly. But it works for me...might buy another rear buffer tube later on and try it again to make it perfect.

Mando...what happened to the rest of the buffer tube you already have?! Just use that. I extended my pull length just a touch but didn't include the threaded end and the screw-in nut. Left the extra room provided to not lose the folding ability.
