They can't bend just the toe. The whole stock must be moved eitherIn the past, I've had two of mine bent. Neither had to be refinished.
I don't now who is doing that kind of work now.
Why would you have to refinish the gun?
Check out Brownells -Top gunsmith Jack Rowe - video on oil bending a stock -Half way trough the heating prosses -"oopps got to watch the heat the finish is starting to boil " --Any time that much heat is applied no I can guarantee a finishRefinishing is not required
I had my K80 done and they will come back a bit over time. They can also crack around the yoke and inlet. I packed it for Hawaii and when I got there it had cracked. Fixed with dowels and fiberglass. Doesn't matter because it fits like a glove.Bending A Finished Stock, can it be done? or will the gun need to be refinished? Where exactly is the bend done to cast the toe?
I had a so called gunsmith try to bend the stock on my TM-1Another method for stock bending uses infrared lamps. I've done 3 stocks with oil finishes and no refinish required.
