stock strengthing

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I have an ACM M14 of some sort. The stock feels kind of flimsy. What kind of substance should I use to stiffen it up? There's a lot of recesses and stuff in the stock I could put additional material in. Would something like Fiberglass be an effective material, and is anyone familiar with it? Or any other suggestions.

Thanks

depending on what you may use, it may add extra weight which you might not want

 

epoxy resin in weak points or try that liguid foam stuff for filler. if it were me I would track down a stock of higher quality

maybe a couple coats of a high quality acryillic clearcoat inside and out

More so add filler to it. There's a lot of empty spaces in the body I can fill to add rigidity. I have bondo, but it's a pretty poor material for anything that takes stress. Typically I use JB Weld for stuff, but I need something a lot cheaper that comes in bigger packages for this kinda thing.
