Elkhuntingguide, thats a nice looking rifle. You mentioned that you were going to sand down the forend. Are you worried about hitting foam or losing strength? It looks as if reshaping the forend would make it an almost perfect riflestock for long range hunting.

I contacted Bell & Carlson and was told i should not hit foam in the fore end just to go easy and dont get carried away. I have almost completed my other stock which is tan in color and have not hit foam yet. I am only rounding off the stock in the area behind the second lug where my left hand will be placed while shooting from a standing or kneeling position. Prone is no problem as I never touch the front end of my stock.

Elkhuntingguide,

Thanks again for you input and pictures. I'd love to see a picture when you get done sanding.

We just finished making a few mods to my friends. I took it on the router table and round off the fore stock. We then put 2 layers of glass on it. Then we got looking at and decided we came this far we might as well cut a hand hook infront of the butt. So I took it on the scroll saw and 5 minutes later it had the hook. We glassed it, filled it, sanded it and a 3 color Krylon camo job fiished it off. It now rivals the $600 stocks on some of my guns.

Just looked a the Bell and Carlson site and they have a new Remington light tactical stock that looks like the one we made out of the medalist.

6mm Shooter,

That sounds like a good project. Did you hit foam in the forearm? Did you change the angle of the forearm or just round it off? Is the forearm made of solid material? Please give some more details. Thanks.

We did not change the angle just rounded it out. We did not hit any foam but what ever they make the the stock from is quite porous but hard when you get into it. Nothing a few quick layers of glass didn't fix.
