Very Unusual Build

Does anyone know who built this rifle? Itís a very unique design, I assume he is or was a member of RFC at some time.
Thanks,
Larry

I posted a new stock in the classifieds today, itís a little different than my normal build because of a bad blemish that showed up during the shaping process. By the time enough wood was removed to get rid of the bad spot, the forearm was starting to look like a big toothpick.

I have always used a Truoil finish on my stock builds and occasionally Iíll spray a lacquer finish? Do any of you wood working guys have other recommendations for getting a good hard finish on your favorite rifle. The antique oil finish looks great, but itís not water proof and probably doesnít protect the wood from the solvents used in cleaning the metal parts.

🪀🪀 STOCK 199, CHERRY SPORTER 🪀🪀

I'm starting on a new stock this week. This is gonna be a cherry sporter stock for a 10/22, with the standard tapered barrel. The nosecap will be a piece of burl wood.

would love to see you do a stock patterned after the old M77 Ultralight.

I have one in .243 with a Luepold 3x-9x compact, and it's a beautiful rifle to handle in the field...the nice and slender overall design, with a slightly shorter, slimmer forearm makes it look and feel very sleek, and a quick handler in the woods

That's a nice rifle. They just don't build enough rifles with nice wood stocks, now days, it's all about saving a dollar and flooding the market with a bunch of plastic.

🪀 STOCK 199 🪀

I got the inletting cut and a pillared installed. The back of the action is also bedded, between the receiver and trigger group. Here's a couple pictures of my progress, so far.

🪀🪀 STOCK 199 🪀🪀

Weíll, Iím sorry to say, this cherry stock I am working on will have to transform into a walnut sporter. During the shaping process, worm hales started appearing. Also, my glue joints darkened, when a coat of Truoil was applied. I guess I must have forgot about the darkened glue joint problem with the cherry wood, Titebond 3 and cherry wood just donít like being together. Iím sure some of you wood guys will have a solution for this problem, any help will be appreciated.
As soon as I get some nice walnut, Iíll continue with my project. I wish to thank the RFC member for his patients.
Larry

I am sorry to hear about your issues with the blank and glue line.

I do enjoy following your escapades with rifle stocks.

Things just donít go my way all the time, hopefully, Iíll get started on another stock 199 in a few days.
Thanks for checking out my work. I really enjoy the feedback from you guys. Since RFC wants me to post all of my 10/22 builds in one thread, Iím not getting the interaction I used to. Tell your buddies, not to be shy! Nothing has changed. Iím still building, I just canít post any builds that arenít already sold.

If you make it a sporter with a hole drilled for and comes with a through stock pin for bolt buffer and a wooden barrel hold down. Barrel channel GM sporter with recoil pad I have a 200$ bill for it.

Well, my cherry sporter is now a walnut sporter. it’s cut out and glued up and I’ll get a couple pictures when I remove the clamps, but It’s probably gonna be Wednesday or Thursday before I can get back to my build.
Tomorrow is my range day for all us old guys and Wednesday is honey-do day.
I’m taking my 6.5 Grendel out to see how it feels after I installed a new buttstock. This is my fun gun, it’s shoots 1 inch groups at 300.
