Ret, the plan is to make the comb adjustable. I am still thinking of how to do it where no tools will be involved or spacers to lose.

I was able to get some work done on this stock, after the rains came, knocked 20 degrees off the ambient temperature, and the power was restored.

The action has been bedded, along with escutcheons.



Following Ret's tips on stock shaping, the files and course sandpaper were used. The forearm area is tapered toward the barrel, and the sides are perpendicular to the bottom. An interesting occurance is how the colors are opposite on each side. The center of the stock happens to fall on a glue line, giving this affect.




The buttstock area was thinned compared to the forearm and the grip area initially contoured.

There will be much more dust to make.
