New Guy Here/Tapco stock .920 barrel



Log in to see fewer ads
Alright, this will be my first post here, so bare with me.
Just received my t6 stock and quad rails from fabsports here in Canada.
I want to use my BC .920 barrel, i know the barrel channel needs enlarging i just would like some suggestions on the best method to do this. I own an air dremel, drill press and numerous hand tools and i am skilled with my hands, this will be my first attempt of a gun modification so some pointer would be much appreciated
PS this site is awesome, reason i own a 10/22

thx
matty

I used a broomstick (slightly bigger than 3/4") wrapped in 60 grit sandpaper. Got it to fit, and it shoots, couldn't really tell how well as the wind was strong enough to blow my target stand over. May try to do some touchups with the Dremel. Word of caution- the sanding collars eat through the fiberglass like butter, the small pointy grinding stone allows a little more precision. I experimented on the forearm top cover as I won't/ can't use it anyway.

A deep sparkplug socket is almost the perfect size to sand a .920 channel. On T6 I don't think there is enough material at the end to sand it!! I have opened mine enough to take a heavy tapered barrel, but it's not close to .920 where it exits the stock.
