started another new project before finishing about twenty others. Our club shoots a match from the bench at 200yrds. It is open to all rimfire rifles. I have been shooting in it with a .22lr, and I think the 55 inches of drop is handicapping me. Some shoot the .17hmr, and seem to have an easier time than I at hitting the tiny targets. My grand plan is to make a wood stock in the rough bench style and fit it to a Remlin. 17hmr that is coming in a horrible plastic stock. Plans are to bed the action and float the barrel. I thought it might as well have some custom features like a fine double shotgun trigger guard, and a red abalone Bullseye in the butt.

Or, do you guys think it would look better heated, bent over, and inletted into the pistol grip? The bend, even a tight one, is going to have a radius that the wood will have to be shaped to match.

Maybe add a cap to the grip to take up some of the distance? Making that bend in the end of the guard might be tough.
But....inletted into the grip would be awesome!
