The stock is the one the rifle came with.Scraped off the paint and evened out the stock with a knife(it was thicker from one side).Stippled it the way Rustam did his .22.Finished it with Watco Danish Oil.Had stained it with Alkanet (ratanjot) soaked in thinner and Walnut stain(Sirca) mixed with oil before finishing it.The inspiration was of course Rustam.Could not remove all traces of RFI handiwork though.Some gouges still remain.
However,I will have to re-finish the butt again as I am going to lengthen it by adding a wood spacer as it is too short for me.Also going to put on a thicker recoil pad.
Thank you for the compliment.
You will not be able to make out from the photograph,but curiously one of the sling swivel is smaller than the other
Will replace them with something better.Have never really used a sling for shooting.Most of it has been the old fashioned way without the use of one
