Nope, I just bought a little kit of Bondo from Walmat. My barrel channel had a little wobble on the edge, so I put some bondo in there to straighten it. Took me two hours tops.

For paint, I used Plastikote Stone fleck and a satin poly over that.

Re: Stockade stocks ??

Do you get a good cheak weld with that stock? If a guy puts a 56mm Nightforce on there, do you think the adjustable cheek peice would be the way to go?

Re: Stockade stocks ??

Here is my stockade with the adjustable cheek piece.
The scope is a NF 8-32x56.
This is an awesome set up. 7WSM with a Benchmark barrel and a real tack driver. It doesn't take much effort to shoot 1/2" groups at 200 yards.
The stock was really easy to finish. I used the icing stuff that Kevin recommends and only spent a couple hours on it. The paint is Rustoleum multicolor textured paint rattle can. The brown paint on the cheek piece is not textured.
It started off life as a Savage model 16 and now shoots almost as good as my custom Remington 700 6mmbr.
I'm not really happy with the muzzle brake but it does reduce the recoil quite a bit. I was hoping to be able see impacts at long range but I can't.
