Got it back together before I start work still not 100% happy with stock but will use it for now can decide at a later date if going to stick with it. But saying that its a total transformation from the dog rough tx I started with

Just waiting for new scope to arrive and will get some shooting done think a trip up to farm in order for next day off

Matty the stock looks awesome! Don't change it, it's nice and dark and looks just how I pictured it would look. Awesome result!

Thanks mate. I let tru oil completely set then used lig oil and a foam pan scouring pad to take off the rough texture happy now its smooth as silk total result . Had a plink earlier and zerod new scope shoots sweet as so smooth and even more accurate than I thought possible didn't have long as light was fading but plan to head out on permission at the weekend

My only niggle is a slight scrape when cocking I'm 99% sure its the spring rubbing on metal spring guide so a delrin replacement may have to be tracked down unsure where or who could make one mite have a ring round tomorrow on my dinner

Looking great matty , and looking better with more layers of tru-oil. Now we need our flu to go and we can get out for a plinking and shooting session. Its a million miles from the tx you had a week ago, umberlivable difference. A gun I'd be proud to own.
