Re: Forend Screw Hole
Thanks for the input! I just saw this message and I already attempted an initial repair. I drilled out the screw holes, used a high quality epoxy and inserted 1/4” dowels, they were snug but they fit almost perfectly flush. I plan to completely smooth everything out with a finishing file, then pre drill the dowels and try and insert the screws. We shall see. Worst case I can drill them out and try your method next, which admittedly seems more likely to succeed. Absolute worse case I’ll fork out the money for a new FE.
