Here are the final pictures of this rifle. Hart Barrel. 6mm BR Improved.
In order to make some stocks wide enough (it’s getting harder to find 3″ wide wood for stocks) I need to get creative. Here, I have laminated a piece of English Walnut to either side of the fore-end of this grafted English and Claro Walnut.
This is a Sako Action imbedded in an English Walnut Stock. This is for Open F-Class Mid-Range. This is low profile. Due to the width of the stock, to widened it, I laminated a piece to either side and put runners on the bottom. It’s in a 6BR Improved.
I’ll be working on the trigger guard and finish in the next coming days.
We’ve added even more stuff!

Here are the finished photos. This is a English Walnut Stock fitted with a Walther KK 500 using a bedding block. I did a lot of machining to make it all mesh together. Once I get it in the wood stock I needed to make a trigger extension. Also, the trigger needed to be dropped down to get the trigger extension to the right height for the pistol grip.
This is a very unique action of the highest quality. It normally goes in a metal stock, but in this case I’m adapting it to a wood stock. I had to make a bedding block that matches the metal stock and that would adapt to the wood. I got busy making the bedding block and didn’t take any pictures. I will be inletting for the rail and trigger guard and will be making a trigger extension shortly.
This isn’t the first one I’ve done. Here’s a link to a KK500 Action in a Koa stock: CLICK HERE
Here are some photos from the beginning of the build to finished. Also, I barreled this rifle with a Krieger 13 twist barrel.
When these stocks hit the market in the 70’s they were much like platform shoes. All form and no function. Also, like platform shoes, they were tippy.
I did a little redesigning to make it more functionable. I took the fish belly off the bottom of forend and redid the the bottom of the pillars. Because the pistol grips on these stocks were relatively small, I bonded 3 pieces of wood to the bottom. The customer saw a cheek piece set-up from a few posts ago and requested that I duplicate for this stock. I, also, rebarreled this rifle.
All in All, I took this rifle from 1975 to 2018.

In the first two pictures you can see how I modified the template.
Second picture shows the blank clamped together.
Third shows duplication.
Fourth, fifth and six shows the modified blank.
One of them shows the bedding of the model 70.
The final 3 show the finished product.
This modification will let a shooter with an extremely short length of pull shoot comfortable. It prevents the shooters head from falling into the gap.

I’ve completed the bedding job on these two rifles for Derek. The F Class stock was modified by McMillan to shoot F/TR. The F/TR stock was modified with a monorail by McMillan. I did minor modifications to the two stocks for proper fit and so that they would look similar. On the F/TR stock I modified it to have a vertically adjustable cheekpiece by putting a thumbscrew in. This latest F/TR stock from McMillan was extremely straight, precise and a pleasure to work with.
This is a Clifford Pierson left handed small bore rifle built in the late 1950’s.
He set National Records with this rifle. And excellent piece of Americana.
Clifford Pierson was a very notable smallbore shooter and rifle builder.
Larry Moore shot this rifle.
Scope is include. It is a 2 inch 15x Unertl.
Rifle and scope condition are good to excellent. Contact me for pricing.
This stock had an adjustable cheekpiece with 2 grub screws to hold it in position. I added a thumb screw and a threaded rod so that the cheekpiece could be adjusted without falling to the bottom and losing all adjustment. I also lengthened the 2 pillars. On older fiberglass stocks this is a needed update.
Congratulations to Trudie Faye for winning the Rocky Mountain Palma match in Raton last week and also to Jim Gaines for winning the Santa Fe trails long range match. They were both shooting Doan Trevor custom rifles.
