Thanks! Haven't had a chance to work on it much but it's slowly coming along. Because I went nut-less on a Savage action and the barrel OD is 1.25" vs 1.06" I will have to open the stock up a bit for clearance.

Will keep you posted on any progress. Cheers!

Great news FEENIX. Already shooting a bow. WOW After surgery on 5-4, 33 PT sessions and seeing the Doc on 8-2 I'm at 80% strength and mobility with some pain. Doc says I'm where I should be and to be patient, full recovery may take 9-12 months. I guess I don't have patience. Old bones heal slowly. I'm working my way up through the light rifles now and expect to be shooting magnums by the end of the month. Elk season for me is in 10 weeks.

Perhaps yours is worst than mine. My doc says ~12 weeks of recovery time if I do the prescribed PT. I did self-initiated PT exercises at home twice a day before my PT appointment and pushed it further everyday as I increased the range of motion and tolerated the pain - iced it after exercises ... the pain eventually went away.

One thing I need to work on is the strength to push, i.e., at this time I can only do incline press exercises (no problem on pull downs) with 35 lbs of weight.

Good luck and have a speedy recovery!
