this is my almost re-finished project. still to do the checkering on the front panels, but apart from that it's done.
BRNO ZKK 30-06, previously restored, but I re-re-did it as I wanted it just perfect
so the total job was:
a. pachmayer decelerator old english 0.8" pad
b. high polish oil finish on stock
c. shortened factory stock 3"
d. installed and shaped new forend tip in african blackwood
e. installed and shaped buffallo horn grip cap
f. rust blued all metal parts
g. installed hex/allen action screws
h. installed single trigger and polished the sears
i. polished the bolt and jewelled it
j. engraved the bolt extractor
k. replaced the extractor collar with a machined one for smoother feeding
l. lapped the back of the locking lugs
m. lapped and poslished the raceways
n. cut a cartridge extraction recess
o. installed original iron sights and hoods
p. free floated barrel and glass bedded front and rear action area
q. niter blued the bolt release catch and safety catch
r. installed new sling studs and glass bedded the front one with a rear locking screw
s. carries a bisley sling with a thumbhole and QR swivels
now I just need my talley QR rings and a scope in the 1.5-5x42 IR type range.
I will also be replacing the front sight bead with a similar one from NEGC with a white bead.
this will be my hill rifle, woodland rifle for sika, driven boar rifle, and plains game rifle.
pretty happy with it.
sorry for sharing this again, but with the re-re-finish and added new features I thought some might enjoy
