Thanks for the input!! This was my first fluting work and it was a tester before I do a BB hogue. I feel like it wants some fluting on the buttstock. I just don't know where to put it.

I will have some pics of it on a rifle in a day or so. To get a better idea.

I'm really considering making an cheek riser and putting that on. Trying to think of the easiest way to make it adjustable, flush and without screws poking out of it. Any suggestions?

Cheers!

adjustable comb

TakedownJedi,
While I have a hogue, I'm not sure about the internal structure of the butt stock portion of the stock......keeping this in mind, I do know in shotgun stocks where adjustable combs in target guns are quite common, there is a very common use of a post and collar method. The comb is cut into a separate piece, then two collars are installed into the top of the stock. These are drilled and tapped for set screws. Posts are installed into the cutout piece (your comb) and fit into the collars. This allows adjustment of the comb to different levels. I have no idea if the hogue would lend itself to this method, but it is something to look at. If you have any LGS in your area that has a good selection of higher end shotguns, especially trap guns, you may be able to look at some adjustable combs for yourself. Hope this helps......cool deal on the cut outs you already did. Never seen that before on a hogue. Good luck with the project........later

The buttstock is hollow. But I have plenty of resin to fill it with. The post and collar is probably what I will do. I just didn't want to drill through the cheek riser. The price of progress.....

Cheers

On a wood shotgun stock the cut is made deep enough so drilling through comb piece is not an issue to install posts. Only place hardware shows is in the gap between comb and top of the butt stock. I think there were some kits out there years ago for the DIY guys. Been awhile since I played the scatter gun games. BTW....good choice of a malted beverage.......later buddy!

Thanks, Wm Wallace, sir.......

I never did like the "Military" look until I did a 2-tone Cerakote job for a gent, and the colors looked pretty nice together...... so I guess this one turned out ok... I contemplated (and may still) doing a darker Cerakote in the barrel flutes, or have Chaser do his Carbon fiber trick on it. Have not decided....

finger nail polish and non-acetone nail polish remover is probably the easiest way... rub the brush over it completely... then lightly go back over with non-acetone nail polish remover on a paper tower... may have to repeat the whole process a few times... this is my 10/22 w/ the lettering blacked
