    Decided to replace the plastic stock on my BB/Pellet rifle.Found a couple stock blanks on the bay and have been slowly carving it to fit...looks liked it will work with more refinements to come. 20210602_142635.jpg

    Is it going to balance against the barrel right?

    Wonder how much effect that’ll have on the tone??! I hope that’s swamp ash, otherwise it’s ruined forever. ;)

    I don't know how to checker a rifle so She will stay plain.

    Cool project for sure. I assembled a Thompson Center 50 cal Hawken kit back in the day and had to sand/fit/finish the stock, enjoyed that.

    Very cool. I was gonna suggest leaving it without the foreend like some of the Henrys...but, didn't realize the cocking mechanism placement until a later picture. An ambitious project, but it will really look nice.

    Ok I decided to go with a straight butt plate..did not have one so I made one out of thick textured plastic and sprayed it with metallic 20210607_173528.jpg gold.
