Shortening a HS precision stock
 
I have a Rem Police with a HS Precision stock that needs to be shortened.
The recoil pad looks like it has been glued on. I understand these stocks are foam filled. There is some kind of line about half an inch from the butt. Is this a cut line for shortening? A half inch will do it. I plan to use a band saw to follow the line down and re-glue the butt on. Anyone here do this before?

Are you SURE there's not 2 screw holes in the recoil pad? I'd use screws when putting it back on if possible. Remember you'll have to contour the pad for the new shape.

Yes Sir, pretty sure.

If I were you, I'd buy another stock.
That's a $250 stock used, if I didn't like it, I'd sell it.

By the way, you need to put a coat of paint on that dresser.

Wow... thats awesome! I'll paint the dresser and ditch the stock. What great advice. thanks.
