Paracord wrapping a wire stock
Not sure if this is the right section for this but what the hell. Anyone have a good link to info on wrapping a wire stock with paracord?

I bought the paracord months ago to do it on my rifle, have not gotten around to it.

I'm not looking for anything fancy, just want to wrap a wire stock so its more comfortable to shoot in the winter.

We called it fancy work in the Navy. My Chief had a real hard on for it, and I did most everything in my shop while on deployment. This style is really easy, it is basically overhand knots in the same direction over and over again. If you change up direction, you can make an M or W pattern.

You will more than likely try several different patterns until you get one that works. I really wanted to do a turks head pattern on the stock but ended up with a more simple pattern after a few tries.

I did the ACE on my Saiga 308 just like that. jaymce is right, I think I wrapped it and unwrapped it like 5 times before I got it the way I liked it.

Ray, If you have'nt already, check out RW rope in N.B. for paracord. Incredible selection/supply and at least one of the guys seems knowledgeable about various wraps and fancy knots.
