Found a deal on a rifle stock, now have some questions.
I found a deal on a NIB or at least it looks brand new factory stock for the Winchester Laredo. Had to relieve a tiny amount of material around the bottom for the magazine box to fit, otherwise though it fit right in. I am running a sporter barrel, so there is some gap around the barrel, which I expected. The two questions I have, when I pulled the action from the composite stock, there was some epoxy like substance around the recoil lug. I pulled it off in order to get the action to fit into the aluminum bedding block. Do I need to put some kind of bedding compound in the stock with this setup? Finally, I dont see any screws holding the recoil pad on the back. Though its supposed to be made by HS precision, the pad says winchester on it. Is it glued on, and if so, whats the best way to remove it so I can put my limbsaver pad on it?
