This gun controller for the HTC Vive has the following features:

  • Proportions based on the M16, designed for H3VR.
  • Height adjustable stock with 95mm of travel.
  • 3 possible configurations: Rifle, Stockless, and Stocked Pistol.
  • Attach and detach to the controller in seconds.
  • No fasteners required, glue optional.
  • Minimal obscuration of the infrared sensors.

The longest part is 200mm.

Note: The stock flexes a bit, unfortunately. I printed mine in PLA, other plastics may flex more.

Print Settings

Printer Brand:












Print the set screw with 0.1mm layer height. Print the set screw and the stock lower part without support material.


The "stock lower" and "stock clip" parts go together tightly, you may need to use a mallet. You can glue them together if you want.

I REALLY love this design. Still printing it out so we will see if it might need more than 10% infill and 5 walls. I suggest taking a cm or two off the buttpad of the stock and having a system to attach different pads such as: the current one, a more curved one like on some shotguns, etc.

Well, with that many walls you might find the clip too stiff (I'm assuming 0.4mm nozzle and PLA).

I do have a 0.4 mm nozzle using PLA but it's looking like I need to reprint it all with more infill and walls as they're a bit flimsy and a simple grip on them starts to crush it. It might just be how poor my print quality is but I've already broken 3 parts at 10-15% infill with 5 walls at 0.35 layer height

hard to print for me. The stock is too tight to adjust. Gonna have to try again after some calibration

Printed it twice with different layer height and infill amount. Both times the clips either broke off completely or cracked. Maybe try making them thicker? Love the adjustable stock height idea.


I've been using this one for Onward and love it. Its nice and sturdy. The only issue is that it doesn't work for every gun. The stock is too high and when i try to look down the sights on some rifles the vive mask hits the stock. I mean it works wonderfully for the g36, which is what it was intended for. And a few others
Plus i have to unscrew it every time to remove it.

That's too bad. I assume it was the little clip on the left side that broke? I can't edit the design right now but you can probably thicken this part yourself with Blender or similar.

Mine hasn't broken though, so I would guess there's something about your setup that's making the parts come out weaker. Some possibilities I can think of:

  • Try using more perimeters (this improves strength better than infill)
  • Make sure you're not under-extruding
  • Try a fresh spool of filament

What games is this for? Will it work for H3VR???

Yes, I designed it for H3VR.

Doh! Saw that in the comment. Trying it in the N2 tonight.
