Recently, KM created a simple DIY tutorial to make an inexpensive gun magnet mount using a few easily obtainable parts. In the process of building our own, we decided to make a few upgrades on the existed type and wanted to share our results.
The materials required for this DIY project is neodymium magnet or ceramic gun mounting magnet, which depends on weight of your gun, provided that you have a few common materials and pieces of equipment laying around.
Before we get into the construction process, here’s the upgrades we made in mounting magnet. In the original DIY, a free paint stir stick was used as the base to screw down the mount. Based on how thin these are and how prone they are to warping. Setscrew used for table or anything with out iron inside, if you have anything with iron inside, then screw is not needed for strong type.
Existed dimension with mold we have:
