The stock isn't terrible for what it is.

I've added some weight to the forend and buttstock to bump the weight and change the balance.

The forend has crossed reinforcing ridges that make it pretty rigid. I screwed about a dozen steel set-screws in the openings in the forend and added bullets to the butt/grip area.

You could fill the openings in the forend with epoxy as well.

Could you explain the set screws screwed into the openings? Was this done to stiffen the forend or just for more weight?
My stock seems flexable. I can put a finger on the end of the forend and a thumb on the barrel and move it side to side with very little pressure.

The reinforcements in the forend are crisscrossed and I screwed some steel set screws into alternating openings, mostly for weight.

I checked that the forend was not touching the barrel in that area. Because the barrel is free-floated I wasn't too concerned about side to side flex. Not sure if the setscrews helped in that way or not.

Filling the openings with epoxy might make it less flexible.

I may do the epoxy but one thing I like about this lil gun is It's light weight. I wouldn't want to add a pound to the overall weight. Wonder how little epoxy could stiffen it up? Once it goes into that crisscross of webbing it could be a bugger to remove.

I don't think epoxy would add too much weight.

You'd have to drill or Dremel it out, but I don't think you'd ever need to.

"... added some weight
"...change the balance
"...epoxy
"...very little pressure
"...free-float
"...flex
"...have to drill

I thought I had followed the wrong post for moment!
This is on a RS22... right?
OMG folks! It's a $100 gun!

But I did learn a few things. Thanks!
Have to go.. my mom's calling me.

Just tinkering Dave!

If I have to explain it to you - you wouldn't understand.

Not a lot of additional investment involved...

Sometimes I get carried away tinkering also, sometimes I should just leave well enough alone. But anyhow back to the topic on hand, the Rossi RS22.
