I've done at least two by hand, that I can remember, and to be honest, it took me a good while with rough sandpaper to get that rubber to wear down. (whew!)
But it can be done, and the only suggestions I would make is to wrap tape around the stock (I used the electric type) so you can protect it from sanding scratches, and be careful not to taper the pad thinner towards it's face.
Only picture I can find of one of them.
