C-mon Hog, don't be silly. Misty is a wealthy double dipping flying farmer. I'm betting on it being sterling silver with gold inlay! ;)

You're right. I forgot he was making the big bucks. I'll suggest he mill a couple pockets and inlay some diamonds. Then he can name it "The Crown Jewel" of his massive collection. :lol:

I'm following this project. Way out of my league to tackle something like this.

Thanks for the kind words gentlemen. Got a little more done, I need to wrap this up before I get in the field..

Handle placement went fine.

I want as little " tinny" harmonics as possible so I filled the hand grip with a proprietary substance, no use telling y'all what it is, in case in doesn't work!

Image

Got it tamped in , left a little space for heat expansion, still was a PITA to weld the end cap on. Had to essentially spot weld it and cool it every 10 seconds.

Confucius say, " he who works alone must have lots of clamps."

For lack of a better idea, I kept the buttplate top in line with the waist section. The action sets into the heavy wall tubing with the bore line slightly above. The steel stock won't be comfy, but I have plans to address that issue, and solve the scope height/cheek weld problem that develops with the bigger scopes, hopefully at the same time. For now I wanted to make sure I could get a cleaning rod down it no problem without hitting the cheek rest area, of course with this setup I could always unbolt the block from the stock and then clean it, which I may do on the 2.0 version, time will tell....


It's coming along now, have to drill my mounting holes and finish up some loose ends. I want to make it a smooth flowing transition between the round well pipe I used for the hand grip and the flat stock used for the butt plate... It takes time to fill in with weld material and then shape it with the grinder. Lots of passes..Image

Now I have to finish weld everything I just had tacked. Some of the butt joints would normally have raised beads on them when finished but I want a smooth corner in this case. Also where the block sets up against the backing plate, has to be nice and square.

I pre-ground a groove in this joint.

Image

The slowly filled it with material, joining the two pieces, going slow and cooling it often. It still tried to warp a little on me, should be able to get it back straight when I do the other side.
