The grip IS patterned off an AK, and the really funny thing is the first time he made a stock like this, it WAS for a Mosin! Here's that one on it's first test drive, still unfinished. He's done about 3 or 4 of those Mosin ones for customers so far. Mine is the first CZ model.

It is a lot of fun to shoot - I went through every round I had that day I got it, which I never do. When I took it hunting, the loaded magazine had cast bullet loads for the jackrabbits, and the backup mags had hot loaded soft points in case anything "augmentative" came along.

For those interested, here's a video I made the day I got the finished product.

Any place I can find the basics on how to make stocks?

I like that always liked the idea of a 7.62X39, me personally I'm not too into modern style bolt guns some of them are real nice and what not don't get me wrong but I prefer the old mil surps mostly because I get to work on them I've done a few mosins but I've been wanting to get my hands on a 8mm mauser.

lots of places that sell gun stocks sell wood blanks for making gun stocks.

there have been some books on this subject. IMO, carving the basic outside shape would be the least challenging portion and i suspect that doing the inletting for the action would be the most difficult portion of the project.

i will look around and see what or if any books might be available and post it later.

if you want one like mine, you will have to do all the work yourself - nobody makes a blank with a pistol grip that i am aware of at this time.

I want to put a good recoil pad on my Remington 700, and I need to flatten the butt of the stock to do this. What would be the best way to do this accurately without damaging the finish or chipping the wood?

I would usually recommend asking texaswoodworker.

Well, texaswoodworker is a little over protective of that gun (his very first gun), so he just want's to make sure he doesn't screw it up.

I would guess that taking it slow with a belt sander would probably be the safest option. I REALLY don't want to even attempt it on my table saw. Any other ideas?

I would think about taping the edge tight to prevent splinter, use a few grades finer than you may feel is correct and maybe on a table sander. Would need some vertical guide. Hmm, that gets tricky......
A jig on a high tooth count band saw might work depending on how much you need to remove.

Good luck!

I'll probably go with the sander. I've used one long enough that I'm pretty good at shaping with it. I'll get it close and finish it up by hand. The band saw would be a good idea, but I don't have one. Not enough room for one. I have access to one, but I haven't used one enough to be really precise with it.

120 grit would probably be a good choice. Plus, it the highest grit I can get for my sander around here.
