Here's a couple pictures of the stock with the first coat of truoil, wet sanded with 500 grit, to fill the grain.

Hey Jim, Thanks for checking out my work. I checked out stock 139, that was definitely a ďone of a kindĒ. Iím not sure I could do another one of those. That also had an adjustable cheek rest, Iím not doing that right now. Get with me sometime.

I always check out your work Larry, it's art.

I'm in no rush, but would love to have another piece from you. Not a problem on adjustable comb height, but if you can scour some maple and walnut (or other dark wood to give some contrast) to pseudo replicate the # 139 to some degree that would be great.

Thanks brother!!

🧿🧿 STOCK 208, OAK BENCHREST 🧿🧿

I'm getting ready to start on a new stock, this one is gonna be an oak benchrest. I really like the looks of an oak stock. They all seem to have nice wood grain. I built a couple for my friends a while back (#200 and #201), they both turned out great. This one is gonna be a little different build, It will have a long LOP (14 1/2") and a thin forearm, to get the barrel closer to the rest. Here is a couple pictures of my progress, so far.

🧿🧿 STOCK 208 🧿🧿

Here's a few pictures of my mornings work. I got the stock inlet and did a little shaping on the stock. The action going in this stock will have an 18 inch barrel, this barrel is 20 inches.

No worries my friend. Take all the time ya need.

Edit: I'll call ya here in the next few days, but here's a quip from Kidd's website:

"Will drop into stock with 10/22ģ inletting and a .920 barrel channel"

So it theory, it's the same dimension as a standard 10/22 receiver. I'm sure there are other customers of yours that have installed Super Grade receivers. Maybe I'll start a new thread and ask...

Edit II: I posted up an LBJ / Kidd SuperGrade question thread Larry: https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forum....php?t=1234383

🧿🧿 STOCK 208 🧿🧿

This morning, I installed the bedding for the back of the action. This should make the receiver more stable.
The first picture shows my rotary tool with the bit I use to rough up the surface. The second picture shows the wood prepped for the bedding.




You need to use a release agent when you are dealing with epoxy, I've always used clear shoe polish for any bedding I have done. Shoe polish is easy to use and cleans up easy with mineral spirits.
The epoxy I use for this is JB wood putty. You just cut off what you need and kneed it into a ball and place it into the wood. It will setup in thirty minutes or so, but I'll give it 24 hours to cure.
The last couple pictures show the finished results.
After the bedding is hard, I will check the action, to make sure everything is fitting like it should, then I'll be ready to install the pillar.
Larry

🧿🧿 STOCK 208 🧿🧿

After the bedding was hard enough to remove the action, I went ahead and installed the pillar. Here's a few pictures of the installation process.
Picture #1 shows the pillar I am going to use, don't laugh, Its a 308 case soldered to a steel washer. It's not the prettiest thing in the world but its very functional.



The hole is drilled out for the pillar, then the pillar is put in the hole and a piece of tape applied to prevent any epoxy from leaking out around the pillar. The action is dropped in and the takedown screw tightened to pull everything together. The epoxy is mixed and pored into the bottom, around the pillar, with the action and stock upside down.
The pillar and the bedding will cure 24 hours before I do any sanding on the stock.
The last picture shows the epoxy I use for the pillar

🧿🧿 STOCK 208 🧿🧿

Here's a couple more pictures of the pillar. It is flush with the wood at the bottom of the receiver and the receiver is solid against the pillar. On the outside of the stock, the pillar will be flush with the wood, with a nice looking brass and epoxy ring around the takedown screw hole. The actual pillar is from the bottom of the screw head to the outside of the steel washer, which is almost solid brass and steel. The brass trim you can see on the outside of the stock is just for looks. The brass ring above the screw, being thick or thin, does not affect the pillar's fuction or strength.
For you guys who think a 308 case is just a piece of weak, thin brass, you need to think about what that piece of brass function is.
This is just my opinion.
Larry
