Thanks for checking out my work. I hope a lot of members enjoy checking out my 7 years of builds. Now, I have to post all of my stocks in this one thread. Its gonna be a little confusing, especially for the one timer just searching around, but it is what it is.
I really like that buttplate. My buddy, Im building stock #189 for, give me a big chunk of aluminum about 3/8 thick. I thought about doing something like that and maybe a nosecap. Can I cut aluminum like that with a small bandsaw, using a metal blade? All I have are a couple craftsman three wheelers. They take 1/4 blades. I figured I would have to get a machine shop to do it.
I have a grandson that I am thinking about building him a special 10/22, using a bronze receiver, with a stainless barrel and trigger group, Not sure of the wood yet. That aluminum may make a nice addition for a nosecap and grip cap. I think Ill probably use an adjustable buttplate.
Stay safe
Larry

Do any of you guys remember this stock? This was my first real build in 2014.

🪀 STOCK 189

Earlier this week, I took the stock over to my buddies, for him to check out the grip area and the cheek height. I want the stock to feel right when he looks through his scope.
We were discussing the rear hold down screw. After he saw how I installed the pillar and ran the bedding up to the rear of the trigger housing, he thought that was a better setup than the rear tang. Although, this was my first install of this type of receiver, it seems to be very solid and I’m sure my next install would be easy. I’m gonna have to agree, it does look pretty good and if you wanted to drop in another receiver, this modification wouldn’t effect a standard setup.

Hello again, I was planning on making an aluminum plate for my grandsons stock build, but I think I’ll just use a rubber pad. Instead of an adjustable pad, I’m gonna build the stock with a lop of 12 1/2 and have a extra piece to add on when he gets older. If he gets as big as his father, he will need a 14 lop. His mom and dad are tall
He will be 7 this year, so it’s probably gonna be a few years, using the short stock.
Larry

It’s been 0 to -4 the past couple days. I can’t do anything outside, so been messing around in my little shop in my garage. This was a good day to build some pillars. It’s kinda time consuming, but it’s something I won’t have to do later. One more day and I’ll have 20 ready to use.

I thought I should post a couple pictures of my homemade pillars. The pillar consist of a cut down and drilled out 308 case, soldered to a steel washer. To get the correct depth for the takedown screw, I cut a drilled out 223 case and drop it in the 308 case. Before using the pillar, I will rough up the outside and ding it up a little, with a punch. You want to make sure the epoxy will stick to the brass surface and not cause a problem.

🪀 STOCK 189

We are having a heat wave today, made it up to 30 degrees, so I decided to get it my final sanding and shaping. My buddy wanted a thumb rest on top of the grip. I got that in and sanded the stock down with 500 grit. Tomorrow, I will put a coat of stain on. The action is his, with everything looking good. The barrel has .008 clearance and the receiver has a kiss fit. The action fits great with this rear screw at the bottom of the receiver. I was really dreading the install, but anyone with a drill press, a little solder and a couple .223 cases, can do this setup.

Thanks for checking out my work. I think Im about as close as I want to be, to retired. Ill be 75 this year. I kinda set myself a personal goal, to build 200 10/22 stocks. If nothing happens to me, I should do that this year. Im actually feeling pretty good, my wife and I try to go to the Y three or four times a week. If I hadnt lost my gallbladder and a foot of colon, Id still be in on piece.
I just do this for fun, it keeps me out of my recliner. Weve had a bad winter here and trying to stay active, the past couple months, has been challenging.

Thanks for checking out this stock build. Taking pictures of this figured maple stock is tough. You think the picture is gonna be like what you are seeing and it isnt. Some of the figure will disappear in the photo. This is a beautiful piece of wood and my photography skills dont do it justice.

Here's a few pictures of the finished stock. I believe everything is Kidd, except the receiver housing. The Minwax chestnut stain turned out great. Sorry, my pictures aren't the greatest.

VERY nice!! I am sure the new owner of that stock will be thrilled with it, I know I would. You are a very skilled craftsman. I was just wondering, where in Mo. are you located? I am in Fenton, just outside of St. Louis.
