Sniper Rifle Project
 
:cool:started this sniper project about 6 wks ago..started with a VZ24 Czech mauser (from SOG). It was ROUGH!!! lots of pitting on outside surface metal, dark bore (rifling OK), stock had 3 cracks and steel butt plate was probably used as a hammer! Action nice and tight/smooth. Rifle is 7x57mm w/turned down bolt.
Got an ATI stock, BSA scope w/Weaver mounts/rings, UTG bipod & Allen sling. Used Brownells Aluma Hyde II in 3 colors (dark earth, OD grn, desert tan, clear matte) on stock, bolt, cheek rest, trigger group, bbled action)..gonna cloth camo the scope. Will try and post pics when I'm done!:D:D:D

OK, but perhaps some of the membership would like to see the project. Who knows, your expertice may inspire someone!

BTW - I think this will make a great restoration thread.

"Pics or it didn't happen." Is a standard phrase around here for: "How about posting some pictures?"
