There was an article in American Gunsmith a few years back.  Drop me an e-mail address, I'll see if I can find it and scan it.  I was considering trying it, just never got around to it, so if you do, please share!

ya, I've been kicking the idea around some. 1 of the small businesses that I own does fiberglass tank repairs and piping installation, so working with composites is not anything out of my scope of knowledge. I've cut and shortened a few of my own stocks with good results. Most of the composite stocks I've looked at are a foam or AL block / foam cores and what looks like Kevlar and or carbon fiber prepreg vacuum bagged  around the core, and heat cured, as opposed to a wet laminate layup. the trick here is to find or make the core blank, in a design that works and is comfortable. firearm stocks have been around for the last few years so I don't see any need to reinvent the wheel.
