    Default New DIY field target stock

    I have been thinking of making a new custom stock for a while now. My first stock that I made works 100%, but I was itching to build something better and more suited to my style.

    So last year my dad and I went to maplestreet timbers and got a nice wallnut blank from them at a reasonable price. Time got hold of me and I only now started the project.

    Progress is very slow. I only have Friday nights and Saturdays to work on the stock as work keeps me bussy during the week.

    This was more or less the design that I played around with. As with most things the end product will differ from the original idea


    The inletting. I didnt have a 35mm cutter lying around so I made one from a 35mm spade drill


    Didnt take a photo of the wole inletting but this gives you an idea of how it looks


    Inletting complete and made some adjustments to the design


    Normal up and down adjustment was not going to cut it for me. Wanted a ball joint meganism so I made my own.




    Rough shaping on the grip. Still need some final shaping to get it right


    Where Im at now.




    The stock is coming along as I wanted it. Time will tell how the outcome will look like. Im hoping for the stock to be completed by middle of December as I have limited time to work on it.

    The progress to date. Did not do too much but I shaped the rear end of the stock and cut the rear to the lenght I need. Also shaped the cheek piece but will take a better photo of it on a later stage.Decided to ad a second plate to the rear to enable a circular adjustment of the butthook aswell. Still need to make all the plates at the back but this is more or less what it can look like when finished


    Shitty photo but the darkness gives an idea of the lines


    The stock will be adjustable for LOP (lenght of pull) via 2 spacers. Just need to still finish my hamster adjusters so that I can shape the front end of the stock. Cant wait for it to be completed.

    Been bussy the last mont so I haven't gotten around to do much work. Decided today that I want to get a far as I can as the project is already 2 weeks behind schedule

    The progress to date:

    The hamster meganism finished and shaping of the stock.










    Started sanding of the grip as I felt I was happy with the shape and feel.


    Shaping of the cheek piece




    Still have alot of sanding to do as there is a lot of marks from the dremmel and speedfile.
    Hoping to aplie my first coat of oil on the 15th of December.
