Have chosen to use a blind magazine so its nice and rounded through the whole stock especially at point of balance.

And definately not using the original bottom plastic - no not really metal - something cheap and nasty.

So a bit of scrounging Edinburgh Rifles gave me a scrap bottom metal off an old Mauser. It had been cannibalised for its floor plate and catch.

So to making it work - inletting the trigger system. - slow and irritating.

Also cleaned up barrel chanel so its free floating. Useing a scraper gets a really good finish. Woodcis wonderful colour. 02DABF64-0E8F-4482-93EE-A73989FE0F10.jpeg374809BD-ACB0-42C8-9863-29B275B8B426.jpegDF712595-CED9-40F1-A33D-57BB25856C77.jpegDD99D3C9-5281-41A2-AB00-789E774CB09B.jpeg

Just need to inlet trigger guard and make an escutcheon/ pillar for for front screw, and then some filing. Oh and use a bit of bedding compound around the action. Then go and plink some gongs or take a Roe buck.

And thanks to all those who have given advice and help.

That is some task you've taken on, but it's looking good already....I shudder to think what the result would be if I tried to restock one of mine. I'll be following this thread with interest and admiration.
