Fiddleback American Walnut FTR Stock for a Stiller TAK 30 Action

This action has the same footprint as a Remington. I made the bedding block, so that the two action can be used interchangeably.

This rifle can be used with a sling or as a FTR rifle.

So, Summer is here, and the portable AC has been taken out of storage and is back in the workshop.

Here is a Claro Walnut Stock for a Barnard Action, it’s going to be used as Palma rifle.

Rosewood Grips for Eliseo / AR15’s / Tubb Rifles

This grip was made from a block of Dalbergia Maritima. It is extreme dense, but easy to cut on the band saw. Works well with a #50 wood rasp and files. It’s sands well, but the dust sticks to everything and stains your hands. When finished with a satin finished it reminds me of a plum.

American Walnut F-Class Stock with Figured English & Claro Walnut Inlay on Forend

The owner has 3 actions with the same barrel block mounting system. He wanted to be able to use one stock. I built a bedding system that would accomplish this task. The two pieces of Claro Walnut on the forend are mirror copies. It’s low profile.

Left Handed American Walnut Stock for a Walthers KK 500

This action has been really fun to work on. I think I’ve done 5 of these KK500 retrofits. Seeings how this action is meant to go in a metal stock, there’s quite a few modifications and measurements needed to make the conversion for a wood stock. This includes making a bedding block from aluminum and Delrin.

If I were starting over in the Smallbore world, I’d get this action… instead of my old model 37 with a Wright Allen trigger.

Koa Purple Heart and Maple Stock for a High Power Swindlehurst Action

Had to open up the bolt face to fit a .308 case. Also, change the angle on the extractor to fit over the case. Came up with a firing pin spring. Also made a scope rail and a recoil system that is integrated into the bedding and the middle screw.
Final pictures to follow.
