I have a 10/22 I'm using as sort of a project gun, think "Mini-22 EBR" and you'll get the idea.

The problem is the Tapco Intrafuse stock for the standard barrel has a nice smooth side to it like so:

However the one for the .920 barrel has these vents in it:

Which not only are really ugly, but another area that can trap dirt, grime and have to be cleaned etc, not to mention UGLY, did I mentioned it was REALLY UGLY?

I cannot find the .920 barrel model with a smooth side like the standard barrel anywhere, Tapco apparently makes them lame for the bull barrel crowd.

So my thought it to use a Bondo type filler to fill in the vents, sand down a bit and then paint the whole thing, but before I do that, has anyone else tried this and has some tips?

what I have seen a few people do who feel similar to you is just mod out the tapco standard barrel stock to accept the bull barrel...heres a vid http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4FEq9ry6gE

I agree. The waffle stock is friggin' hideous. I milled out my Tapco with a ball end mill for my SS bull barrel. Any machinist should be able to do it easily.
