708 Modifications?

Hello,
I'm paralyzed,but have the use of my arms but my hands don't grip very good.I mhave a H & R Pardner Protector 12 gauge pump with a forend vertical grip so I can shoot and grip it safely and accurately.But,I want to hunt and get a rifle and my friend has a 708,which I can shoot,just don't feel comfortable gripping the forend.Does anyone know if I can and where I can put a vertical forgrip on it?Sounds crazy,but I gotta try to come upm with different ways to do things than able bodied people.So,any help or reccomendations would be appreciated.
Thanks alot,
cmfd88

any rail mounted forward pistol grip usually sold for tacticool ar15s should be the ticket.buy a rail blank and have it mounted to the bottom of your forend and stick the grip on the most com fy spot for you.should be a cheap fix if you dont care about expensive brand name 50-100$ grip.good luck and welcome to gunslot

My father was to,he hunted from it several times,both shotgun and a ruger mini14.he was paralyzed on his left side from a stroke.i rigged up a Y shaped support off the wheel chairarm which cradled the rifle and he was set.they make a cradle type support for ATVs so check out some websites like sportsmans warehouse or bass pro shop,cabelas too.

cmfd88..

how bout contacting some of the groups that work with wounded warrior.. You don't have to have a service connected dis. to take advantage of their special adaptions.. IED's have put a lot of guys and gals in your possition.. thinking a tour of their sites might give you both ideas and sources..

welcome to the site, let us know what you came up with..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

Something else you might be able to do is attach some of the screw on Picatinny Rails.

Another option would require someone to wield up a Shooters Sled which could be attached to your chair. Maybe with a removable base which could be attached when it is off your chair and setup on a flat table top where you can get up close enough to shoot from your chair?

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!
