    You certainly would not want checkering where you lay your cheek against the stock!

    Why would you want to? It would look rediculous!

    That is a ton of tedious work for no reason. Well done checkering should accentuate the features of the stock and be functional.

    It probably has been done before, but I don't know of any pics. It would serve no real purpose other than sanding off your cheek. :eek:

    Yeah don't blame you. I think I'd get about a quarter of the way through and I'd be thinking about turning the tools on myself. Lol

    When you post a reply there should be an attachments button just below the input field. Click that and then add attachment.

    Oh you have to say something with it. Just give a title or something and then add the attachment. I think you need a minimum of 10 characters.

    If I ever do it again which I might with a 30-06 I'll make the base color the tan about half the side and make the olive drab green a little bigger but keep the brown about the same.

    Yeah I'd imagine that would dull it down a bit for the upclose looks.
