Great shooting and a beauty of a rifle.

Did I miss where you posted you address so I can send you stocks for free refinishing?

It is interesting to see how some of these rifles evolve over time.

Some of them remind me of the wood cutters favorite ax. Changed the handle 5 times and the head twice but it is still his favorite ax!!

Looking and shooting great! Good to see it back.

Sharp looking rifle plinker
The checkering looks good did you redo those areas?

Turned out real nice. I have a couple of stocks I want to re finish that have checkering on them. I didn't want to bugger one up learning .........

thanks

I used citristrip and a old toothbrush to remove the old finish in the checkered areas. Then cleaned with thinner.

Those are some good tips on the checkering. Also on sanding with 1000 grit every 4 coats. I have a nice little walnut DSP stock I may need to do this on. Now would be a good time to do it since for the moment that rifle is in a little cut down purple stock that Amberlii made for me several years ago. I have tried to get my daughter to swap back to the DSP stock now that she is a little older, but she likes the purple one and won't let me swap back yet. Maybe another year or two and she will let me.

WOW! The completed rifle looks great, the targets look great and the refinished stock looks great. All-around awesome build.
I have all the components handy to build one along the same lines and will be doing it sooner rather than later. I just started stripping and sanding on a decent looking newer walnut DSP stock today. It has some curl and character, but nowhere near yours. I love the look of an oil finish so I will be hitting it with some pure tung oil and elbow grease. The factory finish was just bad. Flat, muddy and the details of the stock were rough, really rough, so I couldn't help but start a full refinish job. Then I was searching this forum for ideas when I saw this one and really got inspired.

Are you spraying the lacquer or brushing it on? I have been interested in it for a while but the startup cost for good spray equipment has held me back.

Spray it with a $10 airbrush from Harbor Freight.... Then buy the $6 upgraded airbrush hose while you are there. Look in the stock refinish section and talk to Noremf he will get you on the right path. I have also used the watco rattle can lacquer.
