The Ultimate Hall of Fame

Welcome to the Rimfire Central Ultimate Hall of Fame.

In 2009, RFC experienced the tragic loss of its founder after a long battle with cancer. Affectionately known to everyone on RFC as Indy, Dan Miller fought until the very end, but ultimately we lost him far too early.

Prior to his passing, the sponsors of RFC gathered together and donated parts for what was to be Indy's Ultimate build. More than a dozen people collaborated on Indy's Rifle, and those who have seen it know it is a true beauty.

Indy's Rifle helped launch the Ultimates Forum and represents everything we love about RFC - the celebration of craftsmanship and love of the sport. Indy's Rifle, and another build of his, will ultimately live on in the hands of his grandchildren. But before that, Indy's Rifle will serve as the centerpiece of the Rimfire Central Ultimate Hall of Fame.

Our RFC Ultimate Hall of Fame will feature his rifles as well as those celebrated in our monthly Ultimate of the Month. As a celebration of the craft, we hope to start a new tradition of featuring the best builds that our community can showcase, and we hope you enjoy the daily reminder of the beauty and craftsmanship of some of these builds.

I am calling this stock the Mannlicher TNZ. It is the last in a series of four stocks I built last summer based on the TNZ theme. As I worked on the TNZ Woodsman stock, which I featured in this thread, it occurred to me that the design would also lend itself very well to a full stock version. In my opinion a slim forearm is the essence of the Mannlicher design. In order to achieve a slim forearm I designed this stock to use a tapered sporter barrel. However, the design can be adapted to a .920in barrel by sacrificing a bit of the taper on the forearm. Hipshot

Christmas Build
I was really fortunate that some members are extremely giving and caring. I owe a lot to a lot of people on this. I cannot say enough how much I appreciate all the help I have received on this. Thanks again. JoeBobber

Ultimate Maple Charger
While working up the project stock I decided to make another stock from Maple and add a little twist to it. This si based off a TH stock that had a cracked butt. Cut it down for the base stock. Really pretty tiger striped maple with great striping so decided to kick it up a notch. I took some Bocote and installed a cap on the grip. Then I decided to try something new. Use an inletted or inlayed piece of Bocote on the spent shell cutout. I inletted the area oversized and carved a piece of Bocote and hand fitted it. Then glued and clamped it. Javaduke

Several things...this gun morphed several times... Stock was by C. Gatewood whom stated it was one of 40 that he build...39 of which were shipped to Germany..this one is said to be (but I can't prove that) the only one (originals) in the USA...then I had him Ebony grip cap it...making it even more one-of-a kind. Tuck added the Molten Magma. Chaser

This is truly my dream 10/22. Often once you finish with a build you think if I were to do it over again I'd change this or that. That isn't the case this time. It's everything I wanted and turned out even better than I imagined. Dr Heckel

The purpose was to refresh/restore the second gun I ever owned (the first I ever worked to get) as a kid, and pay tribute to the role it played in developing my interests in the outdoors, shooting, hunting, and responsibility of firearm ownership... InfamousJ

The stock: I worked with Claude Gatewood to complete a Thumbhole Varmint design he had been working on. This is the second one he made. After having the prototype turned from one of my blanks and I asked him to find the absolute best Claro Walnut blank with as much flame and marbling figure as he could find. It is gloss finished. The grip cap, forearm tip and buttpad spacer are Ebony. jcrowleyiv

Eliminator-Kidd-Lilja aka E-L-K
I would have to say that my biggest point of pride in building this one is it's overall accuracy and accomplishments. The build was an evolution that took 18 months in total, going through four different barrels and a full pillar bedding process before I was happy. It is amazingly accurate, and now only gets shot on more rare occasions kind of like the sports car under the cover in the garage that you don't drive every day... DrGunner
