    M70B1 Stock Mod


    I fault the red area of the high comb for transmitting all the shock to my cheek.

    I was tired of getting bitch slapped by my fixed stock Yugo so I sanded down my stock and re did the finish with some tung oil.
    It's still wet in these pictures and I haven't tested it yet but I think since I copied the stock on my Poly AKS 7.62 pretty close this will work like I want it to.I would encourage anybody out there to go ahead and tackle this problem on your fixed stock.
    It's not hard at all.

    Re: M70B1 Stock Mod

    Tried this rifle out today and no shock or slap transferred to my face no matter where I placed my cheek fore or aft on the stock
    Also I forgot to mention I used Olympic honey oak stain to color match the rest of the stock before I gave it 5 coats of tung oil.
    Just thought I'd share.

    Re: M70B1 Stock Mod

    That looks very nice.
    Did you use a belt sander or did you use another method?
    Rematching the color can be difficult depending on how much cosmoline has been absorber.
    Tung oil is great stuff and dries/cures pretty tuff.
    That is all I used to use but was talked into using Birchwood Casey TRU-OIL.
    Now that is all I use. It has tung oil and boiled linseed oil in it. Since BLO can allow moisture to enter the wood (dispite what everyone believes) I never trusted using it. But the combination of tung and BLO works great.

    Good job, Doc.

    Re: M70B1 Stock Mod

    I used a belt sander at the woodworking shop on the Air Force base where I work.
    I went slow and hand sanded the high points on the stock when I was finished with the belt sander.
    I was rather surprised and pleased how close the sanded part blended into the rest of the stock.I credit the blending of the Olympic stain and the tung oil for this.I have since used 0000 steel wool lightly to break some of the shine off to better match the handguards and it matches perfect.
    Thanks for the comments.

    Got a question for you..Did you do anything about the squareness of the stock coming off the reciever? That I believe is part of the cheekweld problem.

    Yes I rounded the stock as it comes out of the back to give it a more oval shape instead of such a square shape.When I first sanded down the comb it really looked kind of funny it was so flat and square.I gave it more of a regular oval shape.
