Stock Restoration Project

Postby Marauder 1 » Sun Jan 26, 2014 3:07 am

I've got a nice Wartime stock I'm working on at the moment, it's nothing spectacular like an Arctic Birch but it's a cool stock. I do however want to reenforce the top hand guard. These always seem so thin and fragile. I was thinking after I totally have the stock stripped I could lay some super fine mesh fiberglass in the barrel channel and then skim coat it with a thin layer of Devcon or JB Weld. Then sand the barrel channel smooth. Since both the Devcon or JB Weld have steel in them it should also help in preventing the barrel from over heating the wood. Any thoughts from you guys?

That should work Mark... depending on the clearance between the barrel and the hand guard, you might need to sand a little bit out before hand.

I'll deffer to more experienced woodworkers, like Dmitry... However I think the idea is sound.
