Here are some more pics of the current project.
Here is the start of the shadowline:
This is an adjustable cheekpiece. It will be able to be removed without changing the adjustments on the cheekpiece.
These four pictures show the progression from duplicator to rough rasping of the pistol grip and adding a Rosewood pistol grip cap. The dark areas will show the color of the finished wood. Picture #4 is the Rosewood pistol grip cap.
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.
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.
These particular sights will fit Redfield Warner sights. This part is the slider part that will adjust for the distance between your pupils allowing you to center using the opposite eye.
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.
Making a T-Nut to fit in the slots for the offset adjustment
Usually the buttplates I make are 3 way adjustable. By adding another layer, I can make them adjustable for an offset buttplate.
