3/4” ball end mill if the forend is rigid enough to handle it, which I kind of doubt.

Have you tried a wood rasp? That's what I always used on wooden stocks.

Thanks, the forend is fairly rigid, but not rigid enough for me to attempt to use a mill with a ball end mill of any sort.

I will get me a couple of dowel rods and some sand paper of various grits and get to work. I have done it with wood and laminate stocks, wasn't sure if the synthetic would clean up enough to look presentable.

Thank you fellas!

Dowel rod with coarse sandpaper or emery paper, 60 or 80 grit. Most of the time I use a deep socket rather than a dowel, a set will have any size you need.

This. Depending on the sand paper thickness and as you open it up, change sockets to a bigger one. Works great.
