925M Stock Makeover



Log in to see fewer ads
Couldn't pass up a 22mag for $80. Shot and functioned wonderfully. Blueing has small touches of surface rust. I'm convinced the price was because of the beat up stock. I like trying new things with stocks to have something different than everyone else. I've gone the Boyd's route, used tru-oil without staining and another with Danish oil. This one has deep battle scars and uninspiring wood grain. It's getting paint.

After citrus strip, an iron raised a lot of the damage and the rest got filler. After opening the barrel channel, because stock was really touching bad, and sanding, it looked so ugly that the light grey primer was a great improvement. Sorry, forgot pics of that. Base coat overall was Rust-Oleum satin Hunter Green. It dried for several days before I got back to it, then taped for the bottom metal, action and barrel. I also taped the bolt and safety cut-outs. I wanted a little of that satin to show there and behind the action.

I did all that just so I could play with this stuff. Rust-Oleum Multicolor Textured paint in Deep Forest.

This is pretty unforgiving paint. At a couple spots, I got too close and found out it's easy to spray too heavily, so part of it's not as smooth as I'd like but for a first time user, I'm not beating myself up over it.

I cheated a little on the bedding for the front post. I'm a small engine guy and in my inventory is a bunch of intake gaskets. That one goes behind a little 2 stroke carb. The center hole was perfect and it picks the barrel up plenty the let a dollar bill slip all the way down to it. The rifle is scoped but I've yet to get a chance to test my hillbilly engineering.

Looking good!

Depending on the vintage - 25's only had 1 action screw. I have found it's quite beneficial to bed the barrel boss that the action screw attaches to into it's pocket in the stock. This prevents the action from shifting around when working the bolt and cuts down on stringing

Also - since it's only retained by 1-screw - these actions often need bedding further up the barrel to keep the action from see-sawing. If you only lift up the area under the action screw - the action wobbles all over the place.

The later ones added a second action screw - but the barrel/receiver joint isn't rock solid stiff like you need to fully float the barrel. They usually need 3-4" of support in front of the receiver.

Gun looks great, really like the two tone and the hillbilly engineering will probably work just fine. Shoot the heck out of it.

Every time I see some of this on a store shelf, I wonder how it would look on a stock. Now I know. Yours looks great.

I saw pics of someone using it in a desert tan that looked real good. While tracking down a can I came across the green.

Be careful not to get the "stone textured" stuff. It looks the same but it's for indoor only. I read stories of moisture making it gummy.
