    Sugru custom comb raiser

    Been having trouble getting comfortable eye alignment on new Sauer 202 XT and tried Tom D's suggestion of using sugru (a plasticine which cures hard when removed from packaging). I wanted it as a permanent raiser though (rather than just for a stock mould) so employed a velcro strip (to allow room for bolt removal). I think its going to work. You need to use industrial strength velcro but the sugru is only 12 and very comfortable. Click image for larger version.

    Looks very professional, good work
    .308, because if I want to watch something run away, I'll take my dog for a walk.

    Just one - the 100gr, 12 pack. Used it all and was about right.

    You could Bob, you would need to watch the weight as it is fairly heavy in big lumps.
    Better to do it with the glass reinforced stuff, lighter and stronger, not difficult to shape either.

    Well done, looks good, I like the velcro idea, Sugru is sandable and easily worked so better than body filler IMO as it is much less messy to use. Plus it is a handy black colour to match the stock..
