Well, somone just got a new rifle (yay me!) and I am planning to do a stock modification simply 'cause I can't help myself.
My first idea was to just do something simple like an adjustable Kydex cheek piece, but my rifle (Marlin XL7) has a monte carlo stock so I would have to get rid of the rollover on the cheek-portion and then continue with the Kydex from there.

Option number two would be very similar to this Savage Tactical Rifle Project minus the Shilen. :tdn: And I may or may not do the front rail.

If the Monte Carlo lines up to the optic well, then I'd suggest sticking with that. The Pistol Grip idea is kinda fun, and it shouldn't be too hard to fabricate an AR15 Pistol Grip to the stock.

Though for that money and time, I'd personally just get a reloading kit. That way each and every round you fire will be something unique that you made.

Not to mention that when you start reloading, you can save a lot of money. Once you're up and running past the initial investment, you can seriously save money.

Here's the fun part: My dad reloads so all I need is a set of dies, (his friend has some) some brass, (not an issue) and a couple different powder loads and I'm set! :happy:

So really all I need now is ...hmm what do I need, oh yeah, ideas! :dodgy:

And Pistolwhipped, the optics don't line up well with the monte carlo stock and therein lies the problem.

Hmmmm . . . that's a toughie. IIRC the XL7 has the cheap hollow plastic stock. If it were a woodie you could sand it down, but that stock doesn't lend itself well to modification.

Different rings perhaps? Higher or lower? Much less time and money.

Best I could come up with would be to sand down the comb, and then cover any gaps with steel mesh netting to hold shape, then epoxy over that and sand it smooth. Then you can built up comb as you want it. Might look rough so plan on a coat or two of Krylon when you finish.

I've done bodywork on cars with Bondo so I kinda know what I can and can't do with it. My plan is to use bondo, reinforced with mesh, on the inside of the hollow stock, and then cut and sand away the cheek swell on the stock, leaving parts of the bondo showing. I will then do a paintjob on the stock, so the exposed bondo won't really be an issue.
