    Carbon fibre full stock for Winny .270

    Been thinking about trying to make one of these for a while... pulled the trigger and got on with it. Didn't want to invest in all the vacuum gear for just one stock so went the lay up route. I'm not going to pretend this has the finish or precision of a McMillan or one of Stug's creations, this is just me giving it a go, no.8 kiwi style.

    Had to seal up the foam. Stuffed up the first stock by spraying spray putty on it. Not a good idea...Name:  IMG_1698.jpg

    I've gained an appreciation of how well you guys go pumping these things out on a regular basis. Much respect!

    Coated the barrel & action with release agent and kept it in the foam mold to keep it straight as I applied the first layers of Carbon cloth. Couldn't believe how easily the stuff unravels and falls apart! Super hard to work with...Name:  IMG_1710.jpg

    I've found the plain weave doesn't unravel as much as the twill weave. But then I noticed differences between batches of twill weave as well.

    Yeah I got the twill weave as I read somewhere it bends around corners easier, but maybe I got that wrong...but so far so good, as long as I hold it in place with pins that I pull out before the epoxy totally sets.
