So this is a problem I ran into with a pre-carved stock.  Notice in the picture the top of the buttplate is inletted way too deep.  If I cut the stock to match the top line it will cut too deep into the comb and mess up the lines.  Either that or there will be a noticeable dip in the comb.  I looked at every steel plate that Track has and found nothing that would completely solve this problem.  I could put a brass plate on but I think that would look weird with the rest of the furniture being steel.

So the solution my strange brain came up with is to add a piece of steel to the top of the plate.  I cut it from a chunk of one inch pipe and tack welded to the plate.

I will finish welding it and then be able to grind it to both smooth and polish it and hopefully get the lines in a better position. 
And if it doesn't turn out they are only about $20

FG, this is the same trapdoor BPCR restock project I've been working on and posted pics in the modern section of this forum.  It has come along since then but I haven't taken and new pics to post except these.  I will get to that shortly.

By the time I noticed the problem the stock had already been cut so no returns allowed.  In regards to the workmanship of the stock maker..... I will not post anything negative for spite.  This stock was made for a different gun and I made the decision to go forward with the project.  I did email him and express my concerns but that is between him and me.

I would have just changed the angle of the stock and ground the rear part of the butt plate to match up .. if the metal was thick enough and rounded the rear 'corner' if it were too acute and sharp.
It may not line up exactly flat that way but the eye can be tricked into thinking it is.

I tried tricking my eyes into not seeing flaws on stuff I made but no matter what every time I look at it the eye is drawn to the f3#k-up's made  No

We can usually see our mistakes before others with a less critical eye.  I am not only my harshest critic but many times my worst enemy.

I also posted this in the modern section but this build incorporates many of the same parts as a traditional ML.
