Thread: Synthetic stock repair and refurbishment

    Synthetic stock repair and refurbishment

    I have a Sako synthetic stock with a small gap at the front of the cheekpiece.
    For purely cosmetic reasons I would like to fill this, and am hoping that someone can recommend a suitable black filling compound.

    I am also mulling over the idea of having the stock Cerakoted, but it has soft touch panels where the chequering would normally be, and I am not sure if a coating would work on these. Has anyone done this ?

    I would be grateful for any advice.

    Fill it , profile and finish as you would a dink in a vehicle panel and then ship the whole thing off to Hydrographics for whatever funky finish you fancy.

    Cheers

    Thanks K,

    What about the flexible panels ? Would the finish be OK on those ?

    Cerakote won't work on the soft synthetic stock. A decent plastic filler such as 'Devcon' followed by a Hydrographic type dip coating would be my choice.

    If you are who I think you are, why the AFS are you removing it given how well it enables you to shoot??

    Acraglass with black dye in it can work very well spend a little time getting your colours close enough.
