Sounds great.

Say Iíve got a question for you. I have a Ruger stainless new bearcat and a new sp101 8shot both 22 Lr. Do you know if these both could be rechambered to 22mag?

I would say thats likely under the digression of the smith you choose.

I have not seen it done. The couple smiths I have spoken to would not rechamber a Bearcat.

I’m questioning the length of the cylendar myself. Looks like it will be very close. And on the 8 shot 101 I’m not sure there is enough room for the cartridge rims in the space. Well I’m going to call Allen and ask him. He did a bearcat for a friend.

And I have a older 6 shot SP101 that would be ideal to rechamber. But it shoots so good with the Lr rounds I hate to mess with it.

The stock looks good now. It must a really been clubby before you took off all the excess wood. Looks like a nice job you did on it.

Thank you! It was quite a pile of shavings and sawdust! It was over the toe of my boots sittin there workin it!

My small plane did the lions share on the forestock. Most all the grip area work was files and paper. As hard as this wood was to file is as easy as it was to sand! Usually Ill start with 80/100 then 150,180 & 220. Then on to steel wool. As I was painting I didnt bother with the wool. But all i had to use to sand was 150 & 220 and I used the 220 three times wetting inbetween. It was very very smooth.

First coat was regular as it soaked in almost as fast as I sprayed it. This was. VERY SURPRISING as its laminated and supposedly created under intense pressure with the epoxy glue. This should have filled the pores of the wood enough it shouldn't soak up much of anything.... Anyhow, I followed it with two more light coats then the stone texture coat followed with two Forest Green coats.

I coated the insides twice yesterday and it was dry this am so I re assembled.

I've steered away from Boyd's because of what I have heard, but have bought several through Stocky's and all have been excellent. I have 3 with the Accublock system and all improved the accuracy of the gun. One 7mm-08 was giving me fits trying to find a load for it that could effectively kill a deer at 100 yards... The new stock brought it to less than MOA just by bolting it on. Now, obviously there were issues with the original...

Nice work on that stock, CW.

My experience; bought a “walnut” stock with laser checkering. I was (and still am) pleased. The fit is good, with no work required. It had no flaws. The laser checkering doesn't hold a candle to real checkering. But I expected that. The price was right, and delivery was quick. The grain is straight and very plain. But again, I expected that. The barrel is a little bit off center in the channel but not too bad. All in all, no problems.

Recently I got a little chip in the finish, one of those dings that seem to always happen when you have a “using” gun. It knocked a chip out of the finish, not just a dent. About the size of a pin head. The wood is white, very white...sheet of paper white.

Hmm...”walnut?”
