    Thank you!!

    Currently, I’m working on some stocks. I’m working on a walnut stock set for a Winchester 94 and a walnut thumb hole stock for a savage long action. I’m also waiting on a Richards microfit stock for my 458 win mag build. There’s a 2 month lead time for that stock and I really picked a horrible time to build a 458 win mag. Finding cartridge cases has been a real treat lol.

    my girlfriend wants a 243wssm. So, once I find a short action savage chambered in a wsm cartridge and pac-nor reopens after their plant is rebuilt, that will likely be the next build in line.

    Thanks :D:D:D

    Well, my taste runs more to figured walnut, color case hardened and blued steel, but I also admire quality workmanship regardless of the materials or finish used. Nice job Slayer! BTW blue is my favorite color. :)

    I did finally find some that was actually in stock. I’m just waiting for them to arrive.
    If you want to sell the 7 mag brass shoot me a pm.

    Thanks, Griz!! Blue is my favorite color also. Who would have guessed? :D

    I finally was able to get to the range and get some good sunlight pics. My shooting was a little off today(haven’t been able to go to the range in a while) but I’ll include my groups.

    the groups are 15 shots. Sierra match Kings left and Berger match on the right. The Berger’s are definitely the bullet I’ll be sticking with.

    It's your own fault. Now you can hum this while working on another one.

    Slayer you have some mad skills. Beautiful rifle, I've been thinking of building another 10/22 in blue or a light purple, the colors I like might end up doing both. Fantastic job!
