    Anyone shortened a synthetic stock?

    Anyone tried shortening a synthetic gun stock? I figure on whacking off an inch and then shaping a wood block to glue inside the stock to screw a new pad to. I guess my question is what to use to glue the block with.

    If it is polyethelene, nothing will glue it - i have tried a few times with all of the common glues. There was a post recently about glues (all you want to know and much more).

    you COULD shape block to sleave inside the cavity of the butt and then maybe "screw" it in place from the sides (cringed as I typed that.)countersunk and repainted it probably wouldnt look too agricultural.

    Yup, I did it a few years back, cut the stock slightly shorter, filled the inside of the stock with polystyrene, roughened the inside of the stock with really coarse sandpaper, made a wooden block to fit neatly inside, and glued it in with heaps of araldite. Whole lot dried slightly dished, which was perfect, and then fitted a butt pad as you normally do. Still think its intact to this day cos the owner hasn't contacted me to say it aint.
