52 Winchester for the Made in America Smallbore Match

This is the final fitting before finishing of all the aluminum parts and the wood. This rifle will be used at Camp Perry for the Made in America Match at the Smallbore match this summer. The stock is a piece of all Fiddleback Walnut from front to rear – an exceptional piece of wood. The darker areas are rubbed with a bit of alcohol to show the grain and what the final finish will look like. The pistol grip is made in America – it is a piece of curly Hawaiian Koa. The trigger guard is reclaimed Winchester. Right now it’s in a holding pattern to see if we’ll put vents in it.
