Default Anyone seen a C Stock Modified Like This Before?

I'm wondering if this can be brought back by sanding that spot flat, gluing on a piece of walnut, and shaping it to match the factory stock.

Unlikely on the walnut veneer approach.. You might be able to lightly sand(feather it in) the edge of that area somewhat. I would avoid removing much material, though.

Answers are as follows:

(1) No.

(2) Yes. But finding a matching piece of walnut may be challenging.

Good Luck!

We'll see. Seemed worth a shot for the money involved and a fun woodworking project to attempt. I've got a garage full of old walnut. If I take it on, I'll make a post when I'm done for the cheers or jeers, whichever it may be.

If you are going to patch it a milling machine will make life a lot easier

I'll share a few pictures when I get it. We'll see what the story is.

I don't have a milling machine. . .just a piece of glass with a piece of sandpaper glued to it. Depends how much material needs to be removed. Once I've flattened it, it's time to start the walnut search.

This might be a long project. I was only planning on one A4 clone and I've got a lovely scant stock already. This is only thing because I won an auction I wasn't expecting to win. It will be a while before the other parts are acquired. . .so this is a little lower priority.

I own quite a few 03's and A3's. Most have the right side of the receiver area thinned to some degree. Some look like a final assembly quick fix as quite a bit of wood is removed. I found this pic of an unmolested looking scant stock that has received the treatment. A sanding block and some careful work and you may save yours.
