    I got a little bit of work done on this stock. Through screw is in, and the fit is good.

    Your doing great work so far! Keep on going and it will be worth it. Thanks for taking time to post the project pictures.

    How did you drill the fore end? Drill the barrel and mag tube holes first and then slit the wood a little above the barrel midpoint?

    I dropped my stock once while completing the final True Oil finish. The wire that I was hanging it on bent/sagged allowing to fall off. Make sure that does not happen to you. A long metal rod to slip through the tang screw hole at a slight incline works better.

    The thread to my 3 year project on my 44-40 is in my signature block if you need a little motivation to git er done...

    thank you, that would be not good to drop it during finishing! No I drilled the magazine tube hole as a small hole, and the barrel as a channel. It wasn't easy, but it is starting to look like a stock that people bend over and move toward the rack straining for a better look.

    Beautiful work, looks amazing!
    I wish I could do something like this but I wouldn't even know where to start! Someday I hope I can have fully functional woodworking shop on at least 10 acres.

    I don't have either of those things, the best thing I ever did was get a copy of "Do It Yourself Gunsmithing " by Jim Charmichal, I hope that is at least close to the title, great content, and homeowner tools mostly.

    Shelter in place they say, well I'll just sit on the porch and sand on my rifle then.
