I just finished this stock for my upcoming benchrest build. It is Lacewood from tropical South America and the butt is Thuya Burl from Morocco. It features a balsa core,then was cut lengthwise and reglued with carbon fiber between the pieces. I threaded a piece of 7/8" aluminum to act as a dummy barrel, then glass bedded the action. It will be ready to go when it comes back from the gunsmith. The parts are with Mark Penrod, he will install, chamber and crown the Shilen .825 dia. ratchet barrel on a Turbo V1 action and fit the Harrells tuner to the barrel. Can't wait.
