finally got the stock back (see pic) what do you guys think?
opt for a light finish, but will prob use schaftol (the dark one) to give that light redish-brown "walnut" look some time down the line. i was actually surprised how much of a difference these 2 mods (cheek-piece and recoil pad) made. much more stable/comfortable. well worth the time and hard-earned.
just waiting for the big wheel to arrive........then i'm done.
