Well I couldn't stand it any more. I did not feel comfortable holding the wood stock on my AT44,. It was too bulky around the pistol grip and the safety was a pain to reach because the wood extended too far back past the end of the action. also the fore stock was too bulky and felt ungainly. So I trimmed everything down, being careful not to touch the checkering. I also took out the straight router line across the front end and smoothed it out, then I added some checkering to the front to balance everything out. I then sanded everything down to bare wood and refinished it using "special walnut" stain and old master satin floor finish. Which I must say in all the years of wood working is the nicest and easiest finish to apply, that I have ever used. It feels 1000 percent better to hold. And I think it looks better also. The last link is an online pic showing the long shelf which makes the safety a pain to disengage, also shows the router line on the front stock and without checkering. I forgot to take before pic,s. Thanks for looking.

Your added checkering makes it look much better.

You should send those pictures to the manufacturer.

Looking at your wood working skills never gets old, this one is as gorgeous as the other ones you've made.

likely wouldn't do any good. Any extra work translates into cost of production, and I believe they wish to keep costs down as well as selling prices. This is evident with the rough interior.
