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".
