This was to be a prototype stock that could be shipped off and duplicated for use on my other rifles. But the sucker works so well I use it as is. There is Bondo, JB Weld, Steel Putty, and a piece of pine 2-by in there to extend the forearm to make the barrel not look so long. The original stock was way too flexible in the forearm and all of the stuff I added makes it about right.

Did you forget the levitating gas that was injected in order for the rifle to magically float in the air?
