    Here is another one, you old school guys will like this one...

    This one started as just a stock that someone gave me. Someone had cut off the barrel band portion of the forend and painted it black, then put it on a belt sander...then gave up...the stock is an original walnut I decided to try and make lemonade out of this lemon. I added a Kingston Armory steel receiver and new take-off barrel, both were polished to a 5000 grit and hot blued. I modified the stock by adding finger grooves, adding flutes to the comb, redefining the grip area, adding a grip cap and sling swivels mimicking those of the Finger Groove Sporter model. I then refinished the aluminum butt plate and aluminum trigger housing in graphite black Cerakote.

    Here are the before and after pictures




    and the blog posts showing the process
