    "How to"Stock Fitting Part I

    Heres a few things you can do to improve the function and accurcy of your commercial Boyds/Dupadge/CMP stocks
    . These things sometimes also need addressed on USGI stocks

    Your rear sight bottomed out and still shoots high? Check the barrel channel, its probably to narrow and is holding the barrel up out of position. Simply bevel the corners of the channel off to allow clearance and let the barrel drop into proper posiiton
    I had also had a problem with the stock ferrule setting to high and the Op Rod rubbed on it. ,I carved out some of the wood with a utility knife until it set in the proper position



    Problem solved? Not yet, I then had to fill in the area on the bottom since the ferrule set lower so it would stay in place when tightened
    I taped off the stock, and applied paste wax to the ferrule for a release.
    Then placed JB Weld to the bottom of where the ferrule sets on the stock, put ferrule in place and start to tighten the screw but not all they way


    Problem fixed.
    Next issue, although it isnt a big one is sometimes the Boyds needs to have a cutout where the firing pin/bolt would hit


    Also may need alittle wood removed so the trigger clears when fired

    If there is a small dent there the trigger is hitting and needs some wood removed


    Now on to the next issue. Set action in stock and install/lock the trigger assembly. Looking from the side of the rifle there should be a very small amount of clearance approx 1 1/8 inch from where the back of the receiver sets up to the back of the receiver legs. Hold it up to the light will make it easier to see.

    If your stock doesnt have this slight gap,wrap a piece of sandpaper around a block of wood and sand to proper clearance. Donít need much



    Also need to give the rifle the "Tilt Test"
    This stock failed, you can see here where the Op Rod was rubbing slightly , remove wood as needed


    Op Rod also rubbed inside pretty hard

    Went to put her back together and found the nose of the rear handguard was to long and interfered with the front handguard, remove as needed


    These are just a few things to check for on commercial Boyds stocks.

    Fantastic wood work. I should have taken woodworking seriously.
