    A friend got his self one of the new Ruger 10/22 Take Down's and came to me wanting something a little different. Seemed he wanted to make a walnut stocked TD. So he found a wooden stock, I inleted it some, slimmed the stock a little, cut, finished then checkered it. I caught a brake and it turned out pretty nice.

    Nice job. Much better than the plastic.

    It certainly looks more expensive than the gun itself. Really nice.

    Bob actually the labor was a little over $300 for the whole job. Not including the cost of the walnut stock.

    Nice, but dang, the stock still has way too much drop for a good cheekweld. That stock was designed for iron sights.

    Other than that, very nice job. Now I'm tempted to get one.
