I know it has been asked.. (and I searched, really i did! )

For synthetic m-14 stocks, what is a good way to fill the space for the selector? (I don't want to use a fake selector switch)


Edit: thanks for the replys

There's a guy who advertises in The Shotgun News that sells M14 stocks.  
He sells fitted plugs that are a perfect fit for the hole.  
Thses are glued in and finished to match the stock.

You may have to contact him for price.

I have used JB Weld for about the last 7 years to fill the selector cutout, front notch and the gap on the left side. I use a USGI Demilled receiver/spare trigger group to get the fit right.

+1 on the JB Weld.

I've found that using wax paper, two wooden shims, and a spring clamp helps immensly. The JB Weld dries rock hard pretty fast, so if you have to do any shaping, use a file quickly. And don't rush anything, because you're adding to the stock in a very long term way.

And don't worry, paint covers it well.
