    If I recall one member used some white vinyl siding scraps to make the spacers. The pictures looked factory perfect.

    I don't know if this will help you at all, but I had yellowed and possibly slightly shrunken spacers on a Savage 340. For part of the refinish, I sanded the old varnish(?) off and smoothed out the wood, but I knew that by the time I did that, the plastic would likely be slightly proud of the stock. So I left it on for some of the sanding to match the profile, and also help avoid rounding the edges.

    Came out perfectly flush, and bright white.

    Profanity is a poor substitute for education and applied logic.

    Heard years ago that a white plastic laundry basket works good and were just the right thickness. Hmmm... Told my wife I was going to cut hand-openings in the ends of her laundry baskets so she could carry them up & down the stairs easier without them slipping out of her hands. She said that was so thoughtful of me to do that for her, it worked perfectly and she was so appreciative, she made me the best pot-roast dinner you can imagine! She was happy and I got my white spacers -- a real "win-win" situation for all!

    My unmolested 1950 30-30 336RC does not have a white spacer.

    I found the Sterlite plastic lid to be perfect for the spacers.

    I bought a frosting bucket from my local Wally World bakery counter for a buck a long time ago and started using the lid first and those two spacers turned out really well and just about the correct thickness. Make sure you use brown, wood sand paper rather than the black wet/dry paper. The wet dry paper turns the white spacer too gray for me. Will redo that stock someday.

    Try to find something made from Delrin (Zytel) that is white. It is very strong as far as wear and flexing, it will also hold up against chemicals and doesn't have its color fade over time.

    Chiming in late here. Vinyl fence parts come in a variety of different thicknesses at your local home store. I found the rectangular (vertical) to be the right thickness. Most are UV protected to last years outdoors. One piece would make a dozen or so spacers.
    You do not lead by hitting people over the head - that's assault, not leadership D.D.E.
