Hey guys. I had some requests. I finished it on the week end and zeroed my scope. Its a Gamo 4 - 12 x 44 Milldot. Not quite FT I know, but together with my CFX and a steady finger, it sure hits the spot.
I do have a big ass router but its close to impossable to get router bits that fit the profile of your riflr action. It took a while because the synthetic stock of the CFX is injected. So it has small suports that everything fits into. I hadto measure, chissle, sand and fit over and over. You can not do this without a power file. You know the one with the long thin sanding belt. The trick is to do everything VERY slowly. I've atarted another one from steamed beach. Gonna be a looker. Complete with thumb hole and hollowed out shoulder piece. This time Ill take pics to document the whole thing.
I WAS THINKING OF TAKING THREE SHEETS OF LAMINATED WOOD AND WOOD STAINING THEM IN DIFFERENT COLOURS...BOND THEM TOGETHER...CUT THE STOCK SHAPE...AND THEN FINALISE IT...BUT I WILL NEED A DEEP PENATRATING STAIN...OR ELSE THE COLOURS WILL BE SANDED OFF....I'LL HAVE TO SPEAK TO MY FATHER FIRST...HIS A GIFTED CARPENTER
yeah hitman, dunno if that will work. I know the normal ply goes two different shades whan staining them based on the gran direction where the stain makes contact. Comes out pretty nice if done tastefully. I am starting to lean towards just making it out of beech. Pitty is the thickest I can find is about 50mm which seems too thin. Or am I mistaken?
