    Drilling into carbon stock



    So I am thinking about adding a short picatinny accessory rail to the underside of a carbon fiber stock, with just preliminary research it sounds like a broach style drill bit is best?

    Any thoughts on how to do the attaching? drill oversize hols and fill with epoxy ?

    I added a rail to a Christensen arms stock to fit a atlas.
    Gotta admit I was a little nervous attacking a 2k stock, I did buy a new bit the same size and went from inside to out and it was perfect, no drama.
    4 years latter its still fine

    Just make sure it's a sharp drill bit...

    Hey John, if it's the Southfort, definitely give the boys a call as they are awesome and helpful dudes! They will give you good advice I'm sure.
