I'll start this one in the morning. I need to track ole dale down after refinishing is complete. I'll probably tape all of the writing off I think it's kind of neat.

Got lucky on the wood with this one. Ordered from Cabelas. Pictures are the best I can do with tools available, but not the great.

Milk based on that big ol' barrel nut that is a Savage. Some of the most accurate out of the box mass produced rifles out there.

I have several but I sure dont have one in a stock that pretty! Where'd you get that futurerider?

I'll let futurerider103 tell his own story of that stock, but here is a "before" picture of that piece of lumber that he posted a while back...




It's insane to see what was hidden under that factory finish...it looked decent at best from the factory, but absolutely stunning after being sanded, stained and cleared.




I hope to have 1/10th the success with my current project that he had with that one...my before pics of my new rem 700 project that I mentioned earlier:





With the factory finish, the chatoyance of the wood is completely hidden...but you can see the dark swirls in the grain, now that it's sanded down, it shifts and shimmers like mad, but it's very hard to see as a blonde, once it's stained and cleared, it should really pop.

Greg thank you for you kind words. The last I spoke with him, on behalf of a member here on RFC that wanted to buy the gun, he had not even taken it out of the box that was stashed in his safe! Breaks my heart to know that!

It is in deed a Savage 110e. It is a factory stock that I took a little time on to make the beauty come out of it but I seen it hiding as you can see from the before picture. Not bad for a $140 ol' .270 deer rifle

Ha. He has jokes. This rifle was the rifle I took my first deer with so it will stay with me and my family later.
All in all with the leupold vx1 3-9x40 ironsighter one piece base and the rifle I'm only in it a little less than $400. I've got 140rnds down it and it shoots about 3/4moa still

The funny thing about the stock though is that on the inside of the inletting it has an "approved" stamp and the only think I can think of when I hold it is "indeed"

Hi...my name is Kyle, and I'm an addict!



(Just won the auction on this little gem for $29.02 )

Looks like there may be a lot of hidden potential there...almost appears to be an older walnut, but I doubt I'd be that lucky twice.

Langford that stock will look awesome. What color is it going to be?
BTW to others here is how glossy the stock is

Before any lacquer


When it was blonde


Bam! If I don't say so myself

I've done 2 with the walnut colored stain, which turns out really good IMO, but I'm in the mood for a read head . I'm thinking of trying a mahogany color this time around.

*edit*

That's assuming its birch, if it is walnut...just going natural with tru oil.

This is awesome and how cool would it be to actually track down little Dale lol (older than me I'm only 30)

Lousy pics but you should get the idea.
