Car Stock

Well I've got a car stock on my M4 looking 98c right now, but whoever had the gun before my was retarded and milled out around the endcap, so the last "valley" where the endcap piece goes in isn't consealed.  My stock spins, and it's hard to get the ring on the stock tight against the gun.  Any suggestions?

The outter lip on the reciever that holds the last "notch" of the endcap in is milled out.  There is only one "notch" holding in the endcap.

Any ideas?

Drill a hole straight through and pin it to keep it there?

I might just try this.  I was thinking JB weld at first, just to fix the lip, but then I'd have to re-stip and re-paint the gun.

why the hell did he mill it off?

to keep my e-bolt from being sloppy i put a few slices of paper in the grooves to take up the play, might work in yout situation too.

I have no idea why.  Brain-dead I guess.  I'll try some pieces of something in them, and then I'll try the pin idea.  Thanks for the help guys.

I do have another question:

The 98c I painted is starting to chip.  The paint isn't staying on at all.  This is even after 2 coats of clear coat.  I don't understand why it'd be doing this.  And it comes off so easy it's not even funny (some from just putting on and taking off a stupid sight rail).  Any ideas why this is doing this, and how I can prevent it?

Primer makes everything much better. Self-etching primer for alluminum even works on smooth surfaces so you don't have to sand any to create teeth to hold onto.

I used a sandable automotive primer.  Was this a bad choice?  Maybe I'll try to stop by wally world sometime and pick up some self-etching primer, and more paint...AGAIN!  Ugh...

I used the dupli-color self-etching primer from Autozone or any other car place like that. That stuff is strong. Used it on a baseball bat, hit some stuff, still had the paint on it.

only self etching primer sticks to aluminum, it has an acid additive that actually etches the aluminum allowing it to stick, no ammount of sanding (to rough up the surface) or clearcoat will help it stick.
