    Forestock Repair

    Winchester 1400 fore stock has come loose. Just wondering what the strength of bedding compound is. There used to be a shoulder that the action nut,and barrel band pulled down and kept secure. It's probably close to 40 year old and over time it's worn away. When fired it moves forward. Tape is holding it in place now.
    Would a compound be strong enough, or would it require some serious carpentry

    The wood is fairly heavily impregnated with oil etc, so I'm thinking it will require extensive degreasing. I'll try and find the specs and instructions for that stuff.
    Its on a shotgun for those that didn't know, so theres no action screws as such, just the big nut at the end of the magazine tube. It only had about a 3-4 mm shoulder which has worn away

    This stuff is made to adhere to oil impregnated porous metals amongst other things . Give the "affected area " a good dose of polystripper ,bit of a light scrub with an old toothbrush and rinse off with cold water till all the stripper is long gone and then run enough hot water over it to heat the wood up a bit and then leave in the sun to dry . I find the last dose of hot water sorta fluffs up the surface a bit for the stuff to stick to . Sometimes its practical to stick a large shim washer over the repaired area for the barrel lug to bear on .... brass is easier to trim to size . If possible assemble the whole plot before the stuff goes off ( leave mag nut finger tight ) that way everything sits even and all you need to do is trim off excess stuff later

    Thanks for that. You make it sound easy. I guess if I stuff up, I'll just grind it out and have another crack at it. Much better solution than throwing a couple of bolts through in the right place

    Put the wood in the sun, use foaming oven cleaner. Tape any areas of finish that might get cleaner on it, it will lift the oil out of the pores of the timber. Paper towels and wipe clean etc...

    Carpet stain remover gets the oil stains out of teak so should work on a stock. Spray and walk away. Wait for it to dry and reapply if needed.
