    Yes I have converted some standard bdl aftermarket stocks to remy factory dbm bottom metal.

    The main inlet job is the squared out cut into the stock for the mag release tabs.

    It is pretty easy to do with hand tools dremel/files. Might just need a little epoxy to seal it up and slap on some paint.

    That is a BC medalist tac stock converted.

    For touching up the stocks you can use Testors model paint in flat colors (for painting tanks, planes, etc) and gloss black for the webbing. I dip the tip of a zip tie in the black, bend it back and release to fling some webbing touch-up on small areas. Practice a few flings before going to the stock.
