HS precision stock off PSS

i love the rigidity of the stock but becoming uncomfortable with the large palm swell. Has anyone ever dremelled / machined this area down to make it easier to grip or, is it just a case of selling ? Gary

Re: HS precision stock off PSS

yes they are one very stiff stock!!! the plastic remington stock that came on my sps-v was so bad, depending on how i held it in my shoulder i could make the bullet move 3" at only a 100 yards. my re-used PSS stock in no way does that!! the palm swell, i guess i am kind of used to it..
and sanding you do will just remove the nice factory coating, and not a real issue..
the guy i got my stock from did a camo job on it and in my removing it the factory black just in not the same.. so i tired a couple of time to paint and did like how they looked either, and the smell of the paint was always there???
not sure what else to try?

i was thinking more than sanding - dremelling a smaller pistol grip to be honest....may be more hassle than its worth

Is that part of the stock solid? I would make a call to HS Precision and find out if that part of the stock was solid fill first. That would be really bad to find out later it's hollow.

got it, you want to almost re-shape the palm swell to fit your hand better. then yes if you cut into it like that you may have to re-fiberglass that section again. i have a feeling the inside of the stock has a foam core. H-S has a place on there site to ask questions.

I don't know this for sure but I kinda have a hunch it's hollow and not solid.

That palm swell is something people either love or hate. My guess is people with large hands probably like it alot and those with medium or smaller hands hate it.
