Converting a 1913 Anschutz stock to fit a Barnard action

This project is a real challenge, as the stock comes already finished.  I have tried to keep it as original as possible with no markings. This is not a stainless steel action, but a Barnard action that I am using for markup.  It is an unfinished, demised action.

Completed rear offset sight bases for fullbore and smallbore rifles

These sight bases will adjust from 2.040 inches (51.8 mm) minimum to 2.630″ (66.8 mm) (interpupillary distance. Can be modified for more minimum or maximum measurements. These are custom-made to individual front sites. I would need your actual front site to modify it to the offset on the front.

Laminate long-range Palma stock

Note that there are three action screws on the stock for the Barnard action. This is the butt plate installed with the offset plate and it only adds 1/4 inch and the whole assembly is only 7 ounces.

Usually the buttplates I make are 3 way adjustable.  By adding another layer, I can make them adjustable for an offset buttplate.
