Thanks!
Were 2 flute endmills needed to help move the chips more easily?
Wouldn't moving to 4-flute and higher rpm yield a smoother finish?

Yes, 2-flute cutters have more void area to remove chips if you are not using compressed air to blow them free, and wood swarf flies farther than aluminum. The slower speeds go with the slower feeds provided by the cranks. The surface finish I get from Atrax carbide and HSS cutters is quite good. The endmills have a sharp smooth edge, making the surface ready for sanding without lots of tool marks.

The longer cutters I have are 4-flute, only because they do not make them in either a two or three flute variety.

Talked to Aziza Vfr over the weekend about the final coming togearher of the project he has been working on. He sent pictures and declares that all work is completed.

Project completed, finally.

This has been a long time coming. Since my disappearance from this board, so many things have changed personally and professionally in my life. For the longest time, firearms and ideas of working in the garage were not even entertained. It has taken me a long time to even get the time to finish this project I started about this time last year. This truly have been a labor of love, through the learning process, and watching something come from nothing and the Internet (still nothing) to a realization.

Where I left off with the build progress, I had completed the rough exterior. Next on the list of tasks was adding the 10" of Anschutz rail to the bottom of the forearm. It was inlet and secured with a five screws. This will allow for multiple rail attachment to be used.



To go with this rail, I made a sled block, 3" wide, to be used for benchrest shooting. It was cut at an angle, giving the rifle a parallel surface to the bore to ride during recoil. It uses a milled block of aluminum to slide into the Anschutz rail and cinched to the foreend with two countersunk screws using an 1/8" allen wrench. You will notice the color scheme is retained in the sled block to correspond to the color of each side of the stock.





With all the major components completed, the next thing was beauty marks. I have to thank Ret for the wonderful tutorials when it comes to stippling using a carbide burr on his CM-2 build. It was the basis for what I was wanting to do. Using an 1/8" ball burr, I outlined the area of the pistol grip, paying attention to keep each side mirrored in coverage.



For a little extra twist, since this is a Russian based rifle and to tie in the rear buttpad, I added a five-pointed star in the center of the stippling. I traced two identically sized units then proceeded to stipple within the area. The texture is more of a golf ball feel, rather than the cheese grater you would find some tactical guys do to their polymer pistols. It has a solid fill without disturbing your grip.

Star placed


Finished left side


Now for the absolutely longest stage, final sanding and finishing. During this time, I spend more time away from home than I care to mention. Once the sanding was done, I started to apply Tru-Oil to the surface. I personally like how Tru-Oil brings out the colors of the different laminates, especially the red. It darkened it to the colors I was hoping for.

First two coats of Tru-Oil



I lost count of the number of coats I applied and sanded off. It was at least a half a bottle between the stock, cocking paddle, cheek pad, and sled block. After it was completed, it hung in the garage for over a month hardening in the 100 degree garage temperature from the weather of Southern Arizona. It is the hardest finish I have yet to do. Here it is after the last buffing.



I did take it to the local indoor range, placed a 36x power scope on it for function testing. The 3oz trigger is quite good, breaking smoothly. It functioned without fail, and was quite nice to shoot. I did not have at the time a full benchrest shooting platform to really wring out the performance. Given the shaky nature of the shelf, I was quite please with the performance. So was my Lady. She had to distract one of the guys at the range to keep him from drooling over it too much.



As a reward, my Lady said since one Russian is leaving the house, one should join. She ordered me, while I was in Brazil, an Arsenel SGL-21. While they were both made in the Izhmash factory, they are complete opposite ends of the spectrum.




As configured with the scope, the weight of the entire rifle is 9lbs, 6oz. It is at the expected value of just under 10lbs with optics and suppressor. It is a bitter-sweet result. I did have a great deal of fun making this stock. The experience I gained from doing something completely new for me was exciting. Finally seeing it lay in its shipping box was a somber moment. A toast of Glenmorangie 18 Year Old Single Malt was in order.



So this bring to an end of this project. I do not have plans of recreating one of these anytime soon. My professional job is being more demanding as of late. If I do get time, I may make a pattern for azguy to run on his duplicator. He can do the outside contours, then it would be up to the type of action to see if it could be inlet and function. I wanted to get this update out before my next exodus to another black box datacenter. I thank everyone for allowing me to share this journey.
