Wow! Totally surprised...

About a month ago I noticed some flaking on the finish on my rifle. Well, I worked up the nerve to send it off to Paducah Shooters Supply in KY. 3 weeks later, and no phone call, I give them a ring. "Yup we got yer rifle, fixed the wood. Sent her back yesterday" I got it back two days ago, and WOW! Went from ho-hum, poorly checkered birch, to this!

Now I have a gun with beautiful walnut, a grip cap, a nice recoil pad. I can only surmise this is the wood off a 336c, but someone might correct me. This is an awesome surprise and I must thank the guy at Paducah for providing me with outstanding service. Now I need to pick a scope and dial it in.

I wrote them a note to call me before they did anything so I could talk about my options with the stock. They ended up taking my birch off and sent me this back no questions asked!
Wow! indeed BlueBomber! Geogeous wood. Looks like I'll have to upgrade mine soon. Thanks for sharing.

That looks great, nice match too!!! 8)
