    In the process of loading up a few rounds and see how she shoots
    Custom builds I have found is a game of patience. But at least while you wait you can save fo the next items.
    Instead of breaking the bank in one go you can torture the poor barstard out over a long time
    Thinks still to do are pillar bed and maybe action bed but we will see how she shoots.
    The recoil log looks like it may still need a small amount of wood taken from it as it looks to be touching at the bottom.
    But I like to tinker with it otherwise the fun stops

    @Sideshow who did the bolt polishing? Have an X Bolt needing a polish. Also i have a 92 steel reciever BLR that wears a Holosun, and will probably machine a weaver rail -QD rings for swapping out a scope.Name:  20171006_074119.jpg

    Nice BLR there @ANTSMAN sorry but the build was carried out here in the UK. You could strip the bolt and send it to me I could get you a price and then send it back. When the ask what it is Ill tell em the truth. It’s a bolt

    @300_BLK one of my gunsmiths conections.
    It told me it would be the last one as the guy a very good stock maker is very very slow
    The main reason that it took two and a half years.
    Sub contractors ah
    As you can see from the blank the NZ walnut has quite a grey colour to it. Something to do with what's in our soil.
    I wanted a more red dark dye so after the stocker had finished with the shaping I got the gunsmith to give it the old fashioned dye......
    It's the same recipes that they use in all the London gun making houses.....he's even given me a little bottle of the stuff for when I scratch it up. Don't worry boys this one is NOT a wall hanger!
    Just loading up the first fire forming loads now. Have some 162g pills and a whole tub of Trail Boss then it's off to the running boar at the local range. Once this wind dies down.
    Looks like you had a bit of a blow down under too.

    Does anyone know what a stock costs in nz to be made from a walnut blank?

    I see Laurie Bradley still makes them.

    Shite, I am undercharging. With checkering , recoil pad and pachmayr low profile sling studs I charge less than 900. including the wood.
