From a right hand rifle. I'm thinking of buying it, fill the right side bolt slot with
Devcon, dremel one on the left and do a paint job on it.
What do you think?
Not a bad idea. I've seen photos and videos of gunsmiths doing similar things.
Obviously I'd bed it as well, and in fact I'd probably bed it at the same time you do the bolt fill.
If you know anyone who does woodworking or has a lathe they may have a better tool than a Dremel, too, for cutting the new bolt slot.
FYI, HS might repaint it for you afterward if you so desire. Or, believe it or not, Bell & Carlson would as well. They painted a stock for me this past spring and it turned out beautiful.
