So, here are some pictures of the Lone Wolf Rifle Stock equipped Thunder Hammer.

I have to say, I am kind of disappointed with the finished product FOR WHAT I PAID....

I think it's a great stock, and it's definitely rock solid, but it was a little pricey for what I ended up with given that I could have got a couple of other products and glass bedded the damn thing myself.

Fit, finish and construction are all good. I think the bedding could have been done a little better and I think the channel for my bull barrel could have been a tad bit more centered.....

I'm fairly shocked you didn't do all the work yourself! All of my rifles are ol homebuilt pieces of junk. They sure shoot good though.

You've got to get your hands dirty one of these days.

From what I understand, glass bedding is pretty straight forward. Having said that though, I've undertaken quite a few projects that seemed pretty straight forward at the start, but quickly became complicated messes.

Can you return the stock to the manufacturer? I'd try. For what you paid for that thing, it should have showed up dead nuts on.

I in NO WAY claim to be an expert on anything (only having been a gunsmith almost 28 years), but anything I can do to help, let me know. Dillinger-call me if you need help glass/pillar bedding your project. Neil

The bedding is good, and the action fit is great, I was a little miffed about the barrel channel, since I have such a monster thick barrel, that I would have liked it a little more centered in the channel itself. We are talking millimeters though, nothing to get in too bad of a twist over.

All in all, it's a hell of a rifle stock, I was just expecting perfection, especially after lusting over it for the better part of 4 years while the project has been start/stop/start/stop....

We will see how it performs once it's totally done.

S.B. - Thank you! I appreciate it.
