  • H-S Precision stock modification

    Was just wondering...

    The H-S Precision stock on my 700P has a bit of a beefy grip area for my hands.

    Is it possible, or even advisable, to "remove" material from it in order to get a better grip for myself or should I just wait until I can afford
    a chassis system or stock that better fits my hands?

    If you remove material from just about any place on the stock, breaking through the outer surface, you will come upon a very soft material. The soft inner core is what gives the stock its lightness. Wait!!!! Put the stock up for sale. I'm sure some one will buy it, if the price is right.

      You can remove some material from that area. No worries if you cut through the shell and into the foam core. Buy some 2 part steel putty. Remove some of the foam so it's recessed below the surface, fill with steel putty and sand smooth. Then paint with your choice of colors.

      I've done a bunch like this......no worries.

        Might try to just trade it for the 5r takeoff version. It has a smaller palm swell. Slightly shorter forend iirc...

          I don't think there's that much difference between the two as far diameter is there? I haven't had a 5R in my hands in some time. What say others?

            I haven't had them side by side but I've had 2 5r stocks and one 700p stock. Seemed smaller to me.

              The 5R has much smaller palm swells and a slimmer forend.

                        Sounds like a plan, the "honey-do" list is getting smaller so I should have a free weekend soon.

                            I have modified fiberglass stocks. I used West System, available at marine supply stores. It's fancy fiberglass.

                            Good luck
