    Very nice, good skills.

    Could you pls post some more details about the painting. What primer, paint and topcoat did you use ? Did you use sanding sealer etc ?

    egf. Hope Spinedown wont mind. The paint system is 2 coats epoxy followed by heaps 2 pot epoxy primer. Imperfections filled and all block sanded 150 grit, another coat epoxy primer sanded 240 grit then 2 pot poyurethane as many coats as you want sanded with 1200 to cut back the gloss.

    Bloody nice job Spinedown! Very cool looking stock. Design looks like it would be quite comfortable to shoot

    I am surprised you painted it as the timber looks real nice.

    What he said... i would have left it with the wood finish.

    Good on yah for putting the effort into the new stock though... it almost looks like a T3 Sporter now
