    Guide Gun into SBL

    So my old shoulder can't take the punishment of the hard plastic but plate anymore.
    And seeing how I like to tinker anyway, I am turning my GG into a Blued SBL long barrel.
    This is how it sat in its original configuration when I got it many moons ago.



    So far I have installed the XS full rail, Lower Tang and Big Loop.
    Took about an hour of hand fitting the loop to the lower tang, a few areas of the loop were over sized compared to the original.
    Desided to smooth out the trigger a bit as well.



    Thursday the Pepper Laminate stock set should arrive.
    I also have the 1895CB mag tube to install, this will increase capacity 2 more rounds.
    Here it is waiting for the new stock to arrive.

    Well I received the stock set yesterday and got it installed.
    Took a bit of fitting on the butt and the forearm, nothing bad, was just a bit to tight.
    There is a very small chip on the top at corner of tang, but not noticeable unless you really look for it.
    Shouldering is much more comfortable and it balances better.
    I am pleased and think it looks great.

    Next will be fitting the longer mag tube, that may be a few weeks as the barrel will need
    a new dovetail cut up front.
    I may also cut the barrel back 1" and drill and tap for the XS ramped sight.
    On order will be a Leupold VX-3i 2.5-8X36 mounted in Leupold QRW2 high rings,
    That should be just high enough to clear the rear peep sight.

    I forgot this was a BO.
    Oh well no matter, it is changing anyway.
    I love the rifle, but the plastic butt plate is just to hard on the shoulder.

    Buy a replacement stock that you can have cut so you can get a Kick-eeZ recoil pad mounted.
    Then save the original .

    Not sure how any of that helps with recoil.
    I might be in the minority but I despise the rails and big lever loops. I always ask "why?".
    "It looks cool".
