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.

Re: New Wood for my T/C Contender

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.
