Ok, so I finally scored a like-new B&C butthole stock for my L1A1 inch build.

Question: Where are you guys buying kydex to plug up the hole? Ideal thickness? Method of attaching? I don't really want to drill holes in the stock.

TIA:cool:

ETA: MODS CAN YOU MOVE THIS TO THE GUNSMITHING/HOW TO SECTION??? THANKS!

Contact member 69Mach1... he makes removable plugs for thumbhole stocks. He made one up for me and it fit perfectly, and very reasonably priced, too.

if you are only planning on doing one thumbhole, it is probably not worth the expense of buying the kydex, foam for bending, heat gun, dremel for cutting. just pay someone to make one.

B&C made inch thumbholes? I was under the impression that the B&C's were all metric. There are plenty of century bungholes to go around, tho.

I plugged my metric B&C with wood.

I don't have pics, but it's exactly the same as this one:
