    Did you rough up the contact area on the stock enough? The other thing is Devon putty tends to bond less strongly than the liquid, in my experience.

    In addition to roughing out the "skim area", I make hundreds of little mechanical locks with the end of a Dremel tool bit. Kind of like drilling lots of little holes at a right angle to whatever surface you're working on.

    In addition to the normal epoxy bonding, this gives the Devcon something to "bite" into.

    Not at all....It took forever to come apart. I was quite worried I'd glued it in.

    I had the same problem with cooking spray, not a good experience, ended up redoing the whole bedding job. Kiwi shoe polish works great.

    Do NOT use Brownell's Acra-Release, it's the absolute worst stuff I've used, absolutely impossible to remove.

    Stay tuned for details.

    Be worthy of your freedom and of the sacrifice of those who protect it.
