Thanks guy's,I'm not the kind of guy that needs to be told "Good Job",but I just thought since there were no replies,that nobody was interested in how to do a little work on an unfinished rifle stock.
Anyone that takes the time to try and share a little work with the forum knows how much extra time it takes to take pictures,crop & resize all the damn things,transfer them to Photobucket,and then do a write up and post all the crap on a forum.
I'll be happy to continue with it.
Auslach-You are correct,It had the factory tupperware on it.They flex very bad on the fore end.
Lon-What do you mean,all my stuff is synthetic.Just what do these look like,buddy!
I also finished the Ruger 10/22 Evolution stock and the stock on the 03A3.
Cane-I'm sorry,I ran out of $1,000,000.00 bills.It was all that I had in my pocket at the time!
J.D.-Thanks for the kind words.
Bear-Thanks,I always like to work with wood. Gun stocks that is!
I've already put 3 coats of finish on it after I finish sanded the whole thing with 300 & 400 grit paper.
I use Formby's Tung Oil on all of my stocks.No reason for this brand,but it has always given me great results.I also buff between coats with 0000 steel wool.
I'll take some pics of it tomorrow before I put on the 4th of 8 coats.
I'm thinking about trying something different on the Glass bedding.
I bought an epoxy that is like clay.You knead it together,and it changes color and begins to set up.It has a workable time of several minutes,and cures in 2 hours.It shouldn't be as messy as the regular bedding epoxy.
