well i fixed my rifle stock and the end product turned out really nice. not done yet but i like where it is going. i am able to line my eye up with the scope a lot better now which i have found makes a world of difference. the butt end is not secured yet so it can still swivel which does not cause a problem as most would assume. the dowel goes all the way to the butt pad. time to finish the bondo work and paint it.
