Russo Stocks? Lets see them!

I'm strongly considering a Russo stock for a rifle project, and from what I have seen they look great!

Let's see yours, and help me make the decision!!

    I did the finishing on the stock, my work did not match the quality of the stock, but it's good enough for me.

    This is a laminate A-5 on a short Action Savage. The barrel shown is the stock 300WSM barrel. I have a 338Edge barrel and brake for it that I need to get some pictures of as well.

    Scope is a NF 3.5x15x50 NP-R1

    Very nice, and very similar to what I am considering. What finish did you use?

    Notice that the grip area has been heavly modified on both guns to fit my hand better , the palm swell is a bit bigger and the top of the grip is rounded over to be more comfortable and easy to get the thumb comfotrtably positioned , and this in one of the main reasons I like the laminated stocks along with the fact that they cost about half what a McMillan does and atkes about 1/10 the time to get it

    James,

    Incredibly nice!

    Did you do the grip work or did Joel do it for you?

    I have big hands, and I am considering leaving the stock unfinished so that I can modify it to make it more comfortable for me.

    How do you like the adjustable comb? Have you tried it in comparison to one of Shawn Carlocks?

    If you finished it, what finish did you use?

    Bill
