Default My sons new Rifle!

OK, here we are. I ordered the Stock, I ordered the new bolt handle, I ordered the scope, bases and rings. The scope is Philippine w/ Japanese glass. I have the same scope on a rifle, have for 16 years. Also have an AO version on my .17HMR in a slightly higher power. Cabelas is having a 50%++ discount on a package of the scope, rings, laser bore sighter, and gun oil for $99.00. Basic 3-9x40mm. Scope alone sells for $179.00++. Bases from Weaver were $13.59 including shipping.
So on this build we are at:
Stock, $89.00 incuding shipping.
Scope and rings, $99.27 w/ free shipping.
Bases, $13.59 including shipping.
Bolt handle, 19.57 including shipping.
Bolt work, $40.00.
Full dura coat 3 color kit and air brush for metel parts. $84.00

The barreled action is off a basket case 1943 Husqvarna M38 Swede. Nothing matches on this poor bitch. It was put away wet a few to many times before I picked her up.

I received the stock from Boyds today and the Paint from Duracoat. The stock will be slightly sanded and inletted for the bolt handle. Sight hood from Sarco also came in today. The bolt needs to go to The Bolt Man for modification w/ the new bolt handle from Brownells. This is going to be a sweet rifle! I do need to grind the back "hump" for the sight base. It is all good now.

Only 1 question; who's gonna pull the trigger on its maiden voyage?
