New Anschutz maple Stith stock



Log in to see fewer ads
Just received a Stith maple stock for the 54 MS series Anschutz.

I am going to attempt to turn one of the five 54 MS's I have into a bench gun.

Going to finish up the final inletting
Install pillars
Glass bed the 54MS that shoots the best.
Sand then varnish/ poly.
Install trigger guard & butt plate

Any thoughts or ideas from you guys that have already gone down this path regarding any of the above mentioned jobs on a Stith stock

Thanks for the heads up and help.
I'll keep all posted as progress is made.

Here is a beginning photo.

I did one about 6 years ago here is what it looked like and the finished stock rifle is a 1613
Don suggested black tea for the stain, then placed in a closed container with a cup of ammonia till I got the shade of color I wanted.

last picture of how it looked with a new Benchmark barrel

Good luck with your stock

Here is the barreled action sitting in the stock.
Thanks to Don doing a great job on the stock there was little work needed to be able to install the action.

Thanks, I got lucky Don had told me at the time that he may not have a wide enough piece of maple to make it one piece but he came through and I ended up with what you see.
I have done 7 of Don's stocks

Thanks

Well the barrel is only 20" so it looks a little out of proportion to me.
It kind of looks like the Anschutz 64 BR.
I can trim down the length of forearm if it does not grow on me, but for now I'll leave it be.

I think I have the same style stock from Don. One big difference is my barrel is 26 inches long and with the tuner the stock would have been way too short for the rifle. So I had him leave the block at the forearm end on and I shaped it to the rest of the stock. I had the stock auto clear coated at a local auto shop. It rides the bags really well. The action is a 1970 Anschutz 54 and the barrel is a Shilen Octagon rifleing barrel smithed and pillar bedded by Steve Bolter.

MKnarr,
That's good to know it rides in the rest so well.
What style trigger guard do you have installed on your rifle?

It's the original Anschutz trigger guard.

I should have posted this pic instead with the new barrel and tuner.


You can see why I wanted the stock longer.
