Thank for checking out my build. I didn’t get as good of pictures as I wanted, but sometimes a certain color stock just doesn’t look like it should.

Here's the pictures taken in the sunlight. You can see the figure pretty good, but the color is terrible.





This stock took over 10 coats of Truoil before it started looking like it was supposed to. The final results of figured maple is great, it just requires a little more attention than some woods.

Wow! That looks completely different than the original stock, how many coats of wax have you got on the stock? I’m sure you have a lot of hours in it.

Too many to count, truthfully. I'm addicted to lay'n down coats of wax.. that stuff is magic.

It's still got a bit more work to go, but I'll call it 95% to where I want it. Too many hours sanding on it as well. But, it's become cathartic for me.

Thanks again for crafting this for me! Much appreciated.

It will really bead-up when going through the stock wash.

🔴🔴 STOCK 216, 10/22 BULLPUP 🔴🔴

I don’t do a lot this time of year because I’m at the mercy of Mother Nature. Since most of my stock work is done outside, I get pretty lazy when it’s 20 degrees outside. The disadvantage to this is, I have a lot of time to think and try to come up with something a little different. We’ll, my latest project has just about wiped me. After spending a week or so of drawing, trying to work out everything and getting exact measurements of all the pieces, I still screwed up at least three times.
I decided to build a 10/22 bullpup. Just looking at pictures, you wouldn’t think it was gonna be a big deal, boy was I wrong. When you build something like this, using only the resources you have, it’s a challenge. All the parts are wood, the trigger linkage probably should be metal, but it’s wood also, except for two metal pins.
The first pictures showing the trigger mechanism was changed. I think my second trigger setup should work better.
The body is an old carbine stock that is trimmed down and using the OEM inletting and the barrel channel was cut out, to accept a bull barrel.
Using the original safety was kind of a problem also, but, I think it’s gonna work out.
When I’m sure the linkage is free floating, with no parts rubbing somewhere it shouldn’t , I’ll cover both sides with a piece of 1/4 inch walnut. The linkage will get an extra piece of thin walnut, to cover the moving parts and be accessible, if needed.

I know it doesn’t look like much right now, but what you see represents a lot of hours, trying to figure this thing out. And your right, it is a fun project. I think a carbon fiber barrel will look good on this build.

🔴🔴 STOCK 216 🔴🔴

I got the trigger linkage working smoothly and I was able to get the walnut sides glued on this afternoon. After the glue had some time to dry, I did a little sanding on the stock.
The red dot scope I ordered for this build came in today. I'm not sure if its gonna work yet, I'll need to do some measuring. I was planning on putting some wood on top of the receiver to close it in, but that may make the cheek rest too high to see through the scope and I don't want the scope to be any higher. Tomorrow, I'll mount the scope on the barrel and take a couple pictures.
