I was following this along and waiting for it to be completed before i commented on your great work, so besides stain finish on the wood is the stock complete ?
I was thinking you would round off more parts of the stock so its not as square looking, just a thought.
Nice job by the way. :wink:



I not sure to have understood all you have wrote ( my english is not good yet),
you ask me if the stock ( the wood part ) is finished like you see now ?
Obviously not ! i still have to shape the part under the hand guard, chamfering many edges, sanding all the surfaces and curves from grain 80 to grain 600, then i can apply a mix of cooked oil and turpentine,
lowering at each pass, percentage of turpentine.
I use the turpentine as a pore filler, here why I am going to use 50% at the beginning and then I'll go by decreasing the percentage, ending up apply only pure cooked oil.

if i explained each step, and I have attached a lot of pictures, it's only because I wanted to explain every single workpiece machining , showing method, the eventual unforeseen/ mistake, and how to solve it.

I hope I've given you the answers you are looking for, to have written in an understandable English and above all to have understood your question. :lol:

You're doing a great job, and many thanks for taking the time to photograph each stage. It's been very interesting to see how it's done.

Try to assemble all the parts before sanding and staining.

I'm thinking of covering the barrel with a carbon tube, to give a more "bad" look.

Is my expression when seeing this!

I really like how it turned out and the stock you based it off. :D Awesome job man! To 'top off' your sniper rifle a nice, appropriate sling! But very nice job!
