here is the savage axis complete.. i also beefed up the forearm with two 1/4 by 7 inch steel rods embedded in epoxy and added 2 picatinny rails on forearm bolted in and epoxied in with the steel rods... added rubber rail covers for great grip and feel[IMG][/IMG] i had to cut the buffer tube and stock down to make it short enough for proper eye relief... but that caused me to loose the 6 position stock action..i am sure the gun is 3 pounds heavier.,..also behind the trigger the stock is completely filled with epoxy for strength sav 30-06

Looks pretty damn good sir. Have you shot it yet? Fit and comfort? Also I was wondering what kind of epoxy you used to bed those rods. Ive thought about doing the same but with aluminum arrow shafts ive got laying around.

LOL, rather ingenious of you on cutting off butt and putting on a new one. Very creative! However, curious if you did anything to strengthen area of original stock, where rear of trigger guard mates to it. Yea, forearm of Axis stock is flimsy, but so is the part of stock where trigger guard fits.

That turned out looking pretty good. I like the idea of cutting off the butt and putting a new one on. I might have to try that.
