    Looks nice. Decent grain.

    Now you need to get a scope on it and get some range or field time.

    Myself, I place my hand closer to the rear, under the mag well. So the fish belly forend doesn't do much for me.

    You are going to need some really high scope mounts for that high comb.<BR>
    Next investment I would make would be to replace the factory barrel.

    I will be replacing the barrel to something much larger. This stock had a large crack in the forend area that ran all the way to the receiver. I repaired the crack and now its as good as new.

    This is a very nice piece of wood for a $200 dollar gun. Her is a picture of the other side.

    How well does the thumbhole fit your hand? I find most are a bit on the small side and and be uncomfortable in some positions in the field. Yours appears to have ample room.

    You have to put your face on the wrong side, ha ha. Great job...

    I have rather large hands and I find this palm swell to fit me great. The only problem I find is the stock is to high for open sights. This is not a major problem because I have a Leupold ready to go on this masterpiece.
