OK got a quote for a new ss match grade barrel and install on my action. Not sure if I want to go that route as he is wanting $570 which I guess is not bad seeing as he makes the barrels and installs them.

The real draw back to this build is the trigger. There are a few things that I can do to make the trigger a little better but it will never be of the quality of a anney or a suhl.

So I guess the question is Do I want to put $700+ into a rimfire worth $100?

I know I can get a new barrel from Numrich but I have one of them already and it is no good chamber is .003" over sized and spits powder and gas in your face. So I am warry of them. Plus they have soem ugly screw holes for the fornt sight. I don't want that and I know I can fix it but it takes cutting screws and peening them the sanding smooth and filling with some thing like jb weld. Then after all that work I would have to paint the barrel not what I want to do.

Ok I went to Home Depot tonight and spent $200 on stuff for my stock rebuild

What I am going to do is cut down the butt of the stock and raise the comb and create a flat bottom. I think it may have a diamond shape. I am unsure of this right now. The fore end is going to get shaved down as well and have a 3" wide flat base installed. I am thinking it may end up looking like a McMillan Edge or an Edge HBR

It would have been cheaper to buy a stock from Richards Microfit but then It would not be exactly what I wanted. I am making no guarantees that this stock will come out looking like a stock either. This is a first attempt and I am not known for mad wood working skills.

Ok guys

Stage 1: Getting the supplys. It cost me just about $200 for all the stuff I needed. A lot of this stuff is tools that I didn't have before taking on this project. Like wood rasps and files shapers sand paper clamps ect... The wood part I over bought incase I made a mistake. I am still short wood glue. I think I am going for some Gorilla glue wood glue or something like that.

Stage 2: Plans NEVER start something like this with out a drawing. So I traced the outline of the original stock and made my mods to the drawing. Here is what I have so far. You will see some diagonal lines that leads to a small line all the way to the back of the stock. This is going to be the only original stock left after I cut it down and Router it flat.

Here is a close up of the rear of the stock.

Now like all bench guns I am going to make the fore end parallel to the bottom of the butt. I am going to do this by removing wood from the fore end and adding it back with a 3/4"x2 3/4" poplar sanded smooth and held in place with dowels (Maybe). Then I am going to remove the rounded tip and replace it with a 20* straight cut tip.

Wish me luck in my endeavor, because I am really going to need it. I will keep you posted along the way.

Dillinger or matt if you want to move this to the projects forum then feel free too. Just let me know.

OK boys there ain't no going back now.

Today I made my stock jig that will hold the stock while I use the router to trim the stock and make it flat. I am hoping this will work. I also trimmed down the outer edges of the fore end to flatten them out a little. I am going slow and taking my time. I stopped today because I felt I was rushing and getting ahead of my self. I have a 12x12" piece of plexy on order for my router base so I have a wider base and can see easier.

I still need to get some bedding compound and a new barrel.
