Dug One Out of Mothballs, Summit Action



Log in to see fewer ads
Last year when I bought my Summit action I was putting it in a walnut stock I had roughed out. Got kind of busy and had picked up a Klinsky so switched directions. I really like the Klinsky in some ways but it is kind of heavy and just a little clunky. I decided to pull my stock out and will finish it up. After dropping the barreled action back in I really like the feel of it and it's much lighter.

Crappy weather is going to give me a little extra time inside so hopefully I can get this finished up over the next week and I can wack a few squirrels with it yet. It's a 17hm2, may give it a run on rabbits as well.

Klinsky on top mine on the bottom.

I like the prone target styling, looks like it means business. .

This rifle keeps getting pushed aside but I'm determined to get it finished up. Got my forend tip on, reshaped some areas and wiped it down with mineral spirits. Since I took these pictures I did a little more shaping,, sanded and have a coat of true oil on it and drying. This will get some stippling in the grip area.

Mine aren't the beautiful stocks you put out Evan but they are rugged hunting stocks. I wish I could still checker but the neuropathy in my hands and cataracts from all my chemo just won't allow it. If I tried to checker now my lines would look like a pile of pixy stix laying there. Not quite that bad but close maybe. Lol

Very nice job. I really like the looks of using the different types of wood. That takes some serious skill. Is that Purple Heart on the front end tip?

Thanks, the grip cap and forend tip are both Cedar. A little unorthodox but I liked the color and it's for me so I used it.

What method do you use to stipple the grip? Beautiful work.

Mals I use a dremel with a small round ball bit. I use a steel ruler to walk around the edges and keep my dremel bit from going out of the area. Here is the last one I did.
