Bolt handle extension not included here, but will keep updated as it progresses.
Stippling, and stock extended also.

Photos posted instead of links.

This is the Ural 1 that will become a silhouette rifle prior to the shooting season. Fluting the barrel is being considered. Threaded harmonizer
may happen, but a slide on is possible also. I do not keep up on scope ring heights, but I need high rings so as not to bring my head down to the cheek piece. Who makes the tallest rings? I may mill directly into the receiver, and not install a base. Still deciding.


Serial # 122, so appears to be an early one.

Images disappeared, so here are replacements.













Eventual Goal next image.



More to come,

ret

Great Photo Documentation

Great Pictures.

Wonderful show & tell that may inspire others to follow suit.

These customizing DIY projects that show step-by-step progress is something we need more of.

Keep up the good work.
And keep posting as well - aom22.

Stock layout after considering

what I really want. Sketching outline in stock with dry marker first time. Second time using permanent marker. Think carefully about how to remake the stock to your needs. Machinery is handy, but slow work with hand tools will generally work.

Used colored pens as needed. Use straight edges and steel tape rulers for rounded surfaces.

I will remove 2" of the forearm and re-attach forend tip. I will retain both ends of rounded channel on bottom of stock. Re-glue with epoxy. Cut forend tip at 90 degrees for clamping purposes. Use tubular rubber bands if possible to hold in place. Trim to 45 degrees after final length established and laid out.

Porting will be accomplished with a mortise tool. This may be done using small files and 2 templates made from a real estate sign.

I will cut the stock and re-glue tomorrow. I need a forearm length or 8" from receiver face. Measure several times, but cut once. Five minute epoxy works well, but ensure you have everything planned. The time goes quickly, and the work may be ruined. First time, use 30 minute epoxy.

More photos to come. The sawing begins 2-23-09.

Woodmakers rasps do their terrible work.

If I hadn't done this so many times, I would be afraid to look at these photos.

Gunsmithing is like making sausage,................... you may not like to see it made, but it tastes great when you are finished.

Cleaning up the rough work

Work just short of the edge. Leave room for mistakes or changes.



Both side are 99% roughed out and rough sanded.



Grip area to be reduced.




Be careful in areas with thin wood or on an edge. Use a #49 cabinet makers rasp and a 1/2 rat tail rasp for most of the work. Check edge for straightness often.



Look at profile every few strokes of the rasp.



Is the work even?



Examine in a direct lightrom various angles.
