    Thanks, It is pretty fun doing it. I wish I had some checkering tools or something to work on it a bit more.

    Jeez Bill, that would almost double the weight of the scope! A+ for ingenuity though!

    ok , so not quite "gunsmithing " .... but more magazine related ...I have a gsg.22 semit auto with 10 shot mags .... to reload them is a little fiddly and if you don't have finger nails like me ... you need a little help , saw this on the net , so thought I would make one , .... small tool , but took a stupid amount of time , .... it gets put into a hole in the magazine follower so you can use you thumb to pull down the spring and just drop the rounds in ..... if you use your thumb to load at the range , all you can think about while aiming is your stinkin sore thumb .... hope the pics load ...

Size:  381.8 KB after a bit of lathe work the barrel has had 100mm removed a 14x1 thread cut and a end cap to suit. shaped and mounted the picatinny rail. rubbed a bit of cold blue on the exposed metal to stop the corrosion until i can get it down to taupo for a cera coat job. mounted the old bushnell on her to make her bush ready. the final job will see a custom made suppressor hanging off the end.

    Mucko, it is very important that barrel threading is done concentric with the bore, not he outside of the barrel, as they are frequently not concentric as they come from the factory. The correct method is to set the barrel up in a 4 jaw chuck and clock the bore true using a neat fitting bore mandrel. Also make sure (with shims etc) that the bore is running true at the back of the spindle bore. Failure to do this could result in the bullet striking the suppressor baffles.

    I can confirm that. My first and last home made moderator took a bird's eye view of the farm never to be seen again . But am just a bloody possum plucker not an GS .
    Nothing is tough about having a 70 lb bow and looking like an uncoordinated praying mantis while trying to pull it back.

    Here's my first fibreglass stock that I've made. It's cerakoted OD Green. Stock weighs 1077g. I'm working on a carbon fibre version that should weigh about 700g. LOP is longer than standard at about 15".





    Rifle specs: Sako 75, 6x45, 20.5" 8 twist Pac Nor barrel, Tungsten Cerakote, Sauer 202 open sights, threaded M14x1 for Atec CMM-4 moderator/suppressor. Weight is about 4.5kg I think with Vortex Viper 4-16x44, modified Browning A-Bolt DNZ mount and moderator.

    It shoots 105gr Amax's accurately at about 2500fps, or 62gr GSC copper bullets at 3350fps (perfect for deer).

    Pics courtesy of the riflesmith who did the rebarreling, various thread tapping and cerakoting etc, PJS Precision, here in Scotland.

    That stock looks great. What type of mould did you use? Did you shape a plug yourself or use an existing stock as a pattern? Composites is my trade, so I have always toyed with the idea of carbon stocks but never got around to it.

    Thanks mate. I used the original wooden stock as the plug and made a parting board out of 6mm ply. I extended the plug and filled gaps with plasticine. I've donr a few carbon fibre attempts but failed due to cheap rubbish vacuum bags. I've since got decent composites specific vacuum bagging material that stretches better and got a good mould last time. Then I poured in the inletting resin too fast and cracked it. Next time it'll work!

    Send me your whatsapp or email deets by pm and I can send you pics. It wasn't too difficult but was time consuming!
