Have a Stag/CMT Type 2, 6 position, unmarked stock that is prety snug, but wanted to eliminate that last bit of rattle. Is there a quick & easy fix? It has the mil spec receiver extention that came with the set, maybe I'll just bite the bullet & get a SOPMOD.

Thx,
HS

Duct tape on the buffer tube

It's amazing how much this question has come up lately.

Somebody posted instructions on how to use heat in order to shrink the body to fit the tube. Basically, you wrap the body in a towel in put it into a vice then use a heat gun (or other heat source) and blow heat up into the stock body where the tube would go. Once you get it hot, tighten the vice a little. Do this a little at a time until you get the fit you are looking for. I have not personally done this but reportedly this works very well?

If you want to use tape, I would recommend using electrically tape inside of the stock body. Works the same but will not show or roll up on you.

This does work very well. I have done it on three stocks now with great results. It was originally thought of by ICEMAN_1 and I have posted it in a couple of threads since I tried it. It is a great idea and is permanant unlike duct tape.

The temperature adjustment method doesn't seem to work on Cavarms commercial stocks, FWIW. I tried, and am currently using electrical tape on the innards of the stock; it's an acceptable solution, but still has the high potential to bind with quick adjustments. A thin epoxy coat on the inner surfaces of the stock is my expected next experiment.

I like the rattle, it lets you know that it still works

I have only tried it on Bushy stocks. The cav arms I believe are made of a different material so they may not take to being compressed with heat. The epoxy could work if you kept it smooth.

No you swilly wabbits, don't use tape... A hair drier to heat up the plastic that you pre-wrap with a thick rag, then very carefully squeeze it in a vise... It works great and only takes a minute or two

Did you leave it compressed in the vise until it cooled?

I just did a slap rack drill onto a hard surface without teh plastic on. Peened over the edge of the buffer tube.

Thanks all, may give it a try.

velcro with an adhesive back. The furry side.

Stick an inch on top of your buffer tube. Trim the fur until you achieve the fit / tightness you want.

Simple. Not messy.
