    New Walnut Stock for Ruger American Rimfire .17HMR

    I wanted to test my new stock duplicator machine, so I selected my Ruger American Rimfire .17HMR which had a crappy plastic stock. I started with and old stock from a Win 670, I think. I had for years, it had been bust in the receiver area and cut for a child. I add to the length, filled the broken area with Bondo and bedded the .17HMR action and barrel to the stock. This provided the master. I selected a 10 year old piece of walnut. Set them in the duplicator and started cutting.

    I'm getting old, so I would work in two hour sessions.

    After about five sessions it was cut and time to start sanding.

    These are pictures after the first sanding with 150 grit sand paper, next will be to cut off the ends and continue with 220 grit, 322 grit, 400 grit, follow by 600 and 800 grit sanding.

    Oh wow! Outstanding!
    Put me on the list for a stock project, I would like to duplicate an old Herter’s Monte Carlo that came on my late father’s No. 5 Enfield...I have another No. 5 with original military issue stocks and it doesn’t fit me like dad’s rifle.

    You could make some money selling nice stocks to guys like me that hate the cheap looking plastic.
