So I'm currently singling my maverick, as its really the only thing left to try and get decent ranges out of it, and I have just removed semi circle slopes from the sides, and now I'm left with huge holes in the body. I'm wondering if there is some sort of material that I can fill these gaps with that is sandable and paintable. I read somewhere that caulk worked, but I can't find the topic and I refuse to look through any more pages, as all I could find through the search function was "caulk saver."

So, does such a magical item exist?

Epoxy putty. If you can make it smooth enough it will look as if it was made that way. I used it to fill a hole in my ls.

Im not sure about that but Epoxy putty will absolutley do it. All he's got to do is roll it around in his fingers to start it getting hard and put in in the hole.

Fuck Bondo, use epoxy putty. I made the switch a while back and never plan on using bondo again. It stinks and its brittle.

I don't get my kicks out of you,
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But Iím just not the angel you knew.

I've never used epoxy putty before, but I have to agree with Angle, Bondo gets pretty brittle. It flakes off and chips easy, so when you paint it, the Bondo is first to go. I used plastic wood once. It doesn't hold to the plastic real great sometimes but its sandable and dries real fast, I use it for screw hole and stuff that I want to fill in.

Yeah, E putty works great. Has a nice rough surface. And its durable. You would have to seriously hack at it to remove it.

All he's got to do is roll it around in his fingers to start it getting hard and put in in the hole.


Please tell me that was unintentional.

It really depends on how big a place needs filled and whether it is a cosmetic bond or a structural bond. When I put my maverick onto my longshot, I used nothing but JB Kwik, and I'm glad I did because it really needed to be strong, but on the other hand, it also required almost three packs of the stuff, which cost about $13.

JB Kwik is a two part epoxy, not glue. It will definitely work...I know...It is holding the maverick on my longshot, and it is filling the gap between the guns...and by the way, mighty putty is just epoxy putty that is being advertised by Billy Mays.

Here is a closeup of where the maverick meets the ls. There is no gap there. It was filled with JB Kwik, then sanded down and then painted over.

For the record, if the putty is hard, you took to long and fucked up. When its not set, its like thick play dough. Pretty easy to use if you know some tricks.
