Meet Barney, Our New Dog.

Back in February we rescued a puppy found in a barn. We named him Barney. He’s a very inquisitive and happy puppy.

Apparently, he’s my new shooting coach. Checking my shooting position and natural point of aim.

Converting Stock a McMillman Stock from Anschutz 2000 to fit Voodoo Action

This McMillian Stock was bedded for an Anschutz 2000. I filled it in with bedding compound and bedded for the Voodoo Action. Also, had to get a color kit from McMillan to match the original colors of the stock. Then, I finished it with a two part clear coat and buffed to a shine.

Sporting Stock for Enfield P

I changed gears and worked on a non-target rifle.

Someone I’ve know for 20+ years had an Enfield P action and no stock. The Enfield has a rather large action due to the trigger and magazine box, so I modified the stock from a Winchester Pre-64 scope stock.

This rifle is chamber with .338/06.

God Bless, Sergeant York.

Robertson F-Class Stock – Custom Paint

I received this stock and it was covered with faux carbon fiber tape. While taping the tape off I discovered it was previous painted Lapua Blue. It had a drop port in it. I had to fill where the trigger was. Also, cut the cheekpiece off and filled in that area. I did this so the owner could have an adjustable cheekpiece and buttplate. Bedded it for a Stolle Panda F-Class action.

The paint job on this brought me back to when I painted motorcycle tanks. The new red color is similar to the Soul Red on the new Mazadas. It involves a number of different base coats. Then the metallic coast and a clear coat.

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.

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.

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.
