Herman,

I bought my Arm-R-Seal from Woodcraft, Here's the link:
Woodcraft

Shipping was a bit expensive, about $7 for a $9 of sealer. But it arrived within 2 days which wasen't bad.

First coat

Took a look this morning and snapped a couple of pics of the stock after the first coat.
So far its looking superb.



Notice the hardwood spacer. The action would wiggle up and down about 1/2" in the stock. Now, I wasen't gonna send the stock back to have it fixed. So a little bit of CA glue later... fixed it perfectly.

Nice looking stock.

The only question I have is......Why do you have a 4' broom handle sticking out of the from of your receiver

Make sure you back up a few feet when you are shooting in the 50 yard matches, you know...to keep the distance the same

I can't wait to see that stock when finished

Killjoy,
Just wanted to see how much I could make the receiver flex.

Anyone know how to bed the front part of the stock?

Hey Walton Ole buddy!

You wouldn't want to sell that little thing, would you?

I could kick myself. I was 'going' to order one about a year ago and decided to wait to send Mike any money. After all was said and done all it accomplished was me never being able to have a Barracuda. And yours is EXACTLY the way I would have wanted one - I love that 'camo' laminate.

Congrats and enjoy!

Cool

WaltonDude!
That is a nice looking stock! When I first saw the 'cuda stock I wasn't too impressed, but its kinda like the new VW Bug....It kinda grows on ya'.
I've got a Turner cherrywood BR sporter on mine and really like it....Kinda wish I'da went with a laminated now. Shore woulda been purdy! JL

BTW, Yer lawn mower broken or what? Sheesh!

Herman I actually did reply to your email and I though I told you I had order 23 of the Barracudas one of which is yours. There were all supposed to have been delivered two weeks ago. I have tried for two weeks to get in touch with the owner of the company but was told last Friday he was out of the country till this past Monday and that he would not be available for ph calls till wed. which was yesterday. I tried calling yesterday and he couldn't talk with me right thne and I had to leave immediately to go pick my wife up from her job. I tried agian today but no luck. All I can tell you is that I am trying and I did reply to your email. On the other hand I have had two pc crashes and two additional email crashes in the past two weeks. Maybe it is cyberspace somewhere. I promise you I will contact you just as soon as I know anything. They were supposed to ship it here and I was going to sadn and finish it before sending it to you.
Mike

ps yes, I am still digging and I won't quit till the job is finished.

Mikey T you are correct, you did reply to my email. However, it was after I posted here. Sorry I didn't post again here telling everyone that you had answered my email four days after I posted here.

EVERYONE MIKEY T ANSWERED MY EMAIL FOUR DAYS AFTER I POSTED HERE. SORRY I DID NOT POST TO LET EVERYONE KNOW THAT.

Just want to give credit where credit is due.

MikeyT,
Thanks for the replys and efforts toward securing my stock. I know only a little of what you've been through...The e-mails make things so much better.
Hang in. I appreciate your determination on this!

Mike
