Great work

Vaquero was right - you should be proud of your work on this. And we're all proud of you, and proud to be associated with you.

no because this is one a .22 project rifle being built as a target rifle so recoil is not an issue.besides,then the nice milled finish on the rear surface would be a waste.if it was anything more than a 22 it would get a rubber pad over the end cap.

Sorta wanted to see the finished product, Figured it would be good, but this thing is about as close to perfect as you can get.. Fit, Finnish. Everything about this project is out of the ball park. I like the four channels you milled in the butt section as well.. This makes me want to take a chance on pulling those bbls.. are maybe just cutting them back to 3"..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

Hamp Et Al...

the mill I am running is a BridgePort and the lathe is a milspec 24 inch x 6 foot bed machine(forget the name)that came out of Boeing 30 something years ago.very solid and true machine.anyhoo,very nice equipment I have access to.I can use it whenever I want to.I just help the ol' boy with his projects when he needs a hand and he enjoys teaching me to do this stuff.he believes in a machine being used and not sitting around gathering dust.maybe I will post a pic or 2 of the "workplace".
