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.

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.
I am duplicating two left-hand prone rifle stocks. One stock is myrtle wood, the other one is a laminate with exhibition grade Koa wood with the inside piece black walnut. These can be used either for prone shooting or 3P, 3 position shooting. The Koa stock is sold, but the myrtle stock will be available for sale.
The Koa stock will be inletted for a Turbo 2 Action.
Krieger barrel 13 twist. Very close to a new barrel. Barely used. Remington long action with sleeve. New Pacific Tool and Gauge bolt and firing pin. Doan Trevor stock with adjustable cheekpiece and buttplate. This is from my personal collection. $1900 plus shipping.
Sometimes, I get notes. Very specific notes.
Condition is 97% or better. Barely handled and still retains the original satin finish. 27-3/4″ barrel with modified choke. $600 plus shipping.
Took a break from woodworking to do a bit of metal work. Made 7 pairs of offset scope mounts, these will fit Pickatinny and Weaver. Now available.
This stock was easy to work with. Straight. And very pretty wood. Moved the action back half an inch to give the owner better trigger position. Also reduced the overall length of pull half an inch. Hand filed and fitted the buttplate to the rear of the stock.
Here are the final pictures. The cheekpiece has cast-on and cast-off adjusts in it.
Bedding and fitting buttplate. Corrected pistol grip to match H&H pattern. Finished 4-way buttplate. Today, putting on the finishing touches, making action screws and remembering to take final pictures.
Congratulations to Ron for winning the Rocky Mountain State Regional yesterday, using a Doan Trevor built rifle. The original stock was repaired back in 2015. Three weeks ago I re-barreled it with a HART BARREL that Ron had won at the Wildcat Match in March. They made him the barrel and got to me in time to do the work for the Rocky Mountain Match.
Received this piece of outstanding of English Walnut. That wasn’t quite big enough, so I split it down the middle and added a center section. Hand carved it into a Bench Rest stock, because I don’t have a duplicator pattern.
