Default Remington 750/7500







Latest stock work from some of my own walnut - a tree which fell in front of the house 4 years ago and which I planked up and seasoned. It's for a friend's Remington 7500 (model 750 in the US). He's a big guy and the new stock gives him the 15 3/8" LOP he needs. Shame about the tiny little knot on the cheek pad.

It's the first stock for an autoloader I've made - not easy to get the join between wood and metal nice and tight and keep everything perfectly in line. Drilling the stock for the mounting bolt was a swine too. I needed a big auger bit with a follower but I didn't have one so had to improvise!

Looks great and the knot adds character!

Nice job.

Nice work and beautiful wood. I just picked up a Remmy 750 in 35 Whelen, I must say that's a def improvement in looks! So, have you plans for a matching forearm or are you leaving it stock?

He hasn't asked for the matching forearm, personally I'd change it or at least refinish in oil...it's not my rifle and I'd rather keep the nice walnut for some more of my own projects

Three more walnuts went down in the heavy snow we had here in May, so hopefully there's more nicely figured grain hidden inside them.

Beautiful wood and excellent work. My compliments.
