Default Ranger Gun Mount

Kicked off a new project making a gun mount inside the Ranger cab today. I already have the 2 plastic scabbards that mount to the back box which are real nice for elk hunting but a little too long to get your gun out when antelope hunting so now I will have options.

Started with making the bottom socket mount out of 1/8" plate with 2" sides for the butt stock of the rifle to sit in. It will be lined with indoor/outdoor carpet so the stocks will not get scratched. It will mount to the floor in the center of the cab. It will have a strap of 1/8" FB below the floor for the bolts so there will be negligible stress to the floor. It will also have drain holes so water will not sit in the socket.

After that I will make a mount to attach to the dash which will have Velcro straps to hold the barrels tight to the dash but easy to release.

Cut the plate with the new to me propane cutting torch. Worked real well. Cut proud and ground down to the scribe line. Bent the tabs on the shop press and got them pretty close and finished with the vise and some minor hammer work.

Welded with 3/32 6011 at 70 amps. Welded up real nice and got a full pen weld to the inside as seen on one pic. Pleased I can still make a good weld at my age.

Finished up the bottom portion of the gun mount today. At least until I decide what to line it with. The socket has four drain holes so no water collection.
