some of that light colored French walnut would look good on a Model 70! with a very light stain, just enough to bring out the pattern of the grain.

That's the idea. I'm hoping to start putting a custom rifle together soon, just trying to figure out all the components.

I'd like to build a .416 Ruger on a model 70 action or 98 Mauser, color case hardened. Rust blued 24 inch shilen barrel, French walnut stock. Just to be ready for that day I get rich and famous and can afford to go to Africa.

Basically I want it to look like this, only in my price range.

I'd like to see that when it's finished. Be sure to post some pics.

I'll put it all on here. Might be a few years to see it through

This is (highly figured) American Black Walnut

It figures Kalifornia would change the name of an American classic to a preppy name.
