    Single shot .22 bolt action. this is a copy of a win 67 only I made it with a left bolt. It is my first aluminum stock because my arm was in a cast when I made it I decided on alum stock with AR-15 grip so I knew it would fit later. DSCF0889.JPG

    I just cant seem to pass up an old junker .22 that needs a new stock. The camo one is a marlin 10 gun show find. broken stock. The tan one , gunshow find owner modified the stock with a chainsaw. it's a rem 510 . The green one,stained with food coloring is a marlin 15y. Bought it with a broken firing pin. welded the firing pin and let one of my coworkers shoot it .(we had a 25 yard indoor range) he shot almost a one hole group with PMC scoremaster. so it got a new stock.
    The woodgrain stock is on a mossberg 26c single shot cock on close .22 I think somebody drug it behind their truck to the pawn shop where I found it. It was beat up.Guy at work gave me an old beeman pellet gun stock,It had a nice shape to it and rubber butt pad so that was the insperation for this stock. It's red oak with rosewood stain and a beeman butt pad. Picture 101.jpg Picture 102.jpg Picture 103.jpg Picture 105.jpg

    That is some very impressive work . Is this a hobby, or do you do this for a living ? I like how you are not afraid of a challenge,great job.

    Thanks for all the complements
    I have a 12x36 craftsman lathe and a small vernon vertical mill. and files lots of files. Also I made a milling head that fits on the carrage of my lathe an indexing disk and a 90 to 1 gearbox that attaches to the spindle. Thats how I cut locking lug recess, DSCF1347.JPG loading ports and such DSCF1352.JPG DSCF1354.JPG

    It's not a perfect set up but it works.

    Remember shooting a pile of those "Rockets" in the 50's. Any kid could scrape up enough change to get a pack at the hardware store.

    I like it, had a gut feeling you were working with more skill than fancy tools .Right up my alley,part of what I like about the hobby is the challenge of what I can accomplish with little machinery . I am one of those that does not want to re-invent the wheel,I just like different wheels.

    Part of it is I grew up really poor we didn't have much and what we had we made. I still have a hard time buying a new gun off the rack they just don't make the kind of stuff I like . I'd rather make something.

    "I'd rather make something."

    Wish more folks thought this way, really liked your air driven milling attachment using a piece of rectangular tubing for the housing.

    Too many people are afraid to explore the limits of what they can actually do these days.

    Thanks, I'ts a cool little gun but it has a rough spot in the barrel. I probably should look at it with the borescope see if it's worth lapping out. It would make a nice gun for somebody after I croak
