savage 93r17 left handed thumbhole stock

This is my .17hmr lefty Savage wearing its new stock. It took me a while to complete this project,i went SLOW with it. The most HIGH TECH tools i used were a dremel and a jig saw! lol Lots of sandpaper and elbow grease were then employed! I searched the net to try and find one that i could simply order to no avail. There were lots of stocks for a right handed rifle available but none for a southpaw. The end result,satisfaction in doing it myself. The rifle shoots laser straight and i wouldnt part with it! Hope yall like it. Eye
:D

Excellent job! Shines like a baby's a$$. I like your AVATAR also - is that the CVA Phil. Derringer?

Yep,thats the Phil Derringer. My WIFES gun! 44 caliber! The Savage stock ended up with Formbys 0000 steel wool for the final shine. Thanks for the reply. I worked on it mostly after work in the evenings an hour or 2 here and there. Eye

Depending on whether you applied an oil finish or not, an old trick I learned years ago was to final buff the wood with a piece of brown paper grocery bag on an RA or DA sander.

badeye,
From another lefty you did an outstanding job. Excelent work..

Thanks for checking it out and the encouraging words. I have another piece of walnut left.....my Ruger 10/22 T may be the next project. Ive made grip panels for my Llama 45 and wrap around finger groove grips for my Springfield. They would look better checkered but i dont know how to do that. Mine have to be smooth.
Im not sure about the inletting on the Ruger,it looks more involved than the Savage. I may give it a try. Thanks again,Eye

Thanks for the tip. Id like an opinion.....on a Ruger 10/22 t,do u think Keep factory stock or go for it on a home built one? Also,any ideas of the layout of said custom/homemade stock?
