Bedding Hogue Stock

I have a pillar bedded hogue stock I have tried acura glass and jb weld neither stick. I had sanded and drilled little holes to help bond it, nothing. I have glassed plastic stocks before and had not problem.
What will work and stick to this stock?
Thanks
Eric

Re: Bedding Hogue Stock

I have used Devcon Epoxy Putty before on a Hogue aluminum bedded, rubber overmold stock...
ITW Devcon | Magic Bond

I was only aiming to fill the gaps slightly between the full length aluminum bedding block and the receiver just around the recoil lug area. I used Johnson floor wax as the release agent.

I was worried about it being too brittle. But, it seems to be holding up just fine although, I haven't taken the stock off in several years.

...but, perhaps you're talking about a plastic stock chassis?

I will have to try that. the plastic in these stock are not as big as I thought they would be. There is to much rubber if you ask me which makes it very hard to bond to. Also the plastic is very slick. I drilled a bunch more holes this time will see if it works.
Thanks

It sounds like more plastic than aluminum.

Re: Bedding Hogue Stock

Well I went down to the local home depot, I couldn't find devcon epoxy but did find a 5min epoxy with 3500psi. I drill the stock again in the plastc area I put a couple cross holes throught the fins. This time I used the quick release and silcon lube. It worked a lot better but will have to go out and shoot it to see how good it really is.
Thanks for all the help.
Eric

Re: Bedding Hogue Stock

I heard of someone on hear lightly spraying the bedding area with a plastic type primer. They said it really helped make the bedding compound stick?

Re: Bedding Hogue Stock

That is a good thought. For now the epoxy is holding with all the drilled holes in it. But if it doesn't I will have to get some devcon and prime it to see how it works.
Thanks
