a russo creation

well joel, i just couldn't let this sit. i tried to get it to balance out with my 280 ai, but alas i gave up.
it was just too barrel heavy for this pattern.

so i pulled my 300 rum out of it's mcmillan stock, and went to fitting it up. it balance's great, and has a solid to the shoulder feel with the lighter barrel contour.

it has bothered me since i received it back from you, that it was just sitting in the closet, so the other day i started sanding.
took the palm swell down a bit, and got most of the glue off.

took the dremel to the inletting and now she is sitting in the back room with bedding compund drying..
it looks and feels great !

thank you...
ready to do another in a remmy 700 l/a adl ???


and for some reason there's a dark patch in this pic that's not on the stock ??

    You shouldn't slobber on it until it is finished! You'll raise whiskers and have to rework it.

    It looks nice Mark, can't wait to see it when it's all cleaned up and finished.

    They're not much good sitting in the closet.

    PLEASE, show some finished pictures! It looks awsome so far. No wonder you couldn't let it in the closet.
