Here's an area of the stock before the refinish. You can see what I mean about the factory finish obscuring a lot of the grain feature.
That's some nice finish work there Turbo. I've done a little of it over the years, including antique funriture, and it's not easy to produce results like that. Well Done. Congrats.

USCGret sir I have a better picture for you that is on my screen savers collection of one of Al's rifles and here it is and even had the family dog lay down for a picture.




I even tried it but Al has a way with rifles and I could not get the same look or feel

Looks like the pup is a little hungry with all the drool under its chin. Surprisingly borrowed your rifle to keep its feet warm.

My 550 in 6.5x55 is a full stock, hog back.
I shoot it just fine with a scope, but; it comes to shoulder like custom fit shotgun with perfect sight alignment with iron sights.
I can do that with my eyes closed and open eye to the sights lined up perfect. It only does that with irons.
I can make do with anything, there can only be one "just right".

Sage455 sir my 455 Trainer has a Weaver V-16 on it and my 452 Lux in 22mag has Weaver Grand Slam 4-16 scope with Weaver Grand Slam rings I will have to double check when I get off of work it think there are 49219.

The rings I use the most are those GS and Burris 420076 on most of my CZ rifles now remember I don't own any 22lr CZs all mine are magnums. Now Macenzie my new adopted daughter does with here 455 Scout and those are Burris rings...got to look those up too...sorry getting old.

Ken sir I have a set of Grand Slam 49219 on my 452 Lux with a Grand Slam 4-16x scope on top...granted the 452 Lux has a 11mm rail on top these but these rings hold my scope.





bolt all the way back and as far open as it can go




I know the gap looks pretty large between the scope and the barrel but I would say it's less than 3/16" of an inch...but it's a hell of a lot better than the mile high Burris 420556 rings that I use to have on it when I was using with a longer scope on my 452 FS...same iron sight set up as my 452 Lux...I don't have a close up picture of the scope set up on my Lux back then.



But here is my 452 Lux and 455 Trainer before I found the Weaver Grand Slam scopes:


Anyway I hope this helps and good luck on your quest. One last thing everything is going to be close just take you time getting it all together.

Thanks Signalman, I had this setup before but couldn't remember what rings to use. I sold that set up when I needed to get my truck roadworthy to take care of of my father. It's a close fit but works great.buy the way did you get my text "I like traffic lights" by Monty Python. It goes from bad to silly bad. I thought you'd get a laugh out of it if you could get all the way through it.
Your friend
Ken
