    Has anyone ever experimented with thermoplastics for making shotgun stocks? I have a vision of a Jack West kind of stock that could be heated and bent to fit. For example, a user could bend the grip to achieve cast and maybe "smoosh" the comb to duplicate a kind of roll over. It might even be possible to create finger grips.

    Just interested. That's all.

    Anything that could be modified like that would probably deform quite easily in the hot summer heat inside your car.
