Thanks guys, I have two coats of finish on and will sand it down again tomorrow to fill the pores. I also want to sand the forend tip a little to lighten it up as the stain darkened it a little to much.

Sorry I have never tried them but I'm sure they work great. I have a number of Johns metal mags and a bunch of the factory 5 rounders. I like 5 rd mags. I am also thinking about making new bottom metal with a larger trap door to enclose the bottom of the mag sticking out. I dont know why except for the experience. I want to build at least one super tricked out 581.

No worries grg! I was just joking. 🙂

I’m happy to hear you have some of Johns! He does great work!

Good luck on the bottom metal work! I think you’re going to have a fantastic rifle!

Congratulations! A very creative design, and more than a touch of real elegance. Of course, all expertly brought to completion.

As noted above, there is an astonishing degree of talent and skill on RFC.

Regards,

Dyson

This stock is done with exception of rubbing out with Rottenstone later after it cures. I made some new action screws for a couple of my Remingtons and would like to try to find a couple replacement screws with Allen heads for the others. I also like to recess the bottom metal but do have intentions of making new bottom metal when I get some time. There are some flaws on it as I really never intended to put it on a finished rifle but to use to duplicate, got a little attached as I went along.

The rifle now feels much better and fits me well as I like the more vertical grip. I also tried to keep a little bit of a flat on the forend so that it would shoot off a rest better but didn't want it to look blocky.

Now I have to find another 581 as this one goes back in my camo squirrel rifle, it may be my favorite squirrel rifle.
