New Wood for my T/C Contender

I thought you might be interested in the new look for my T/C Contender. Ole Georgia Jim furniture. Jim Grip and G2R Forend in Black/Gray Laminate. Funished with 5 coats of Formby's Tung Oil High Gloss.
The barrel is a SSK 6.5 JDJ and a Burris 2-7X scope. I'm shooting the Nosler 120 gr BT at 2400 fps.

    That looks great! It is hard to beat wood from G.Jim.

    Thanks guys, your comments are really appreciated.
    Put it on paper this morning and shot a 3 shot group that measured .379" at 100 yds. The wood grip is much more comfortable that the standard issue I have had for all these years. Just wish I would have restocked sooner.

    Tung oil, eh? Nice! Shoots good too.....

    There's just something about the feel of wood......

    Very nice, I have a set on my OTT 6tcu which is what I got my first coyote with.
    The oil sure brings out the beauty of the wood.
