This was to be a prototype stock that could be shipped off and duplicated for use on my other rifles. But the sucker works so well I use it as is. There is Bondo, JB Weld, Steel Putty, and a piece of pine 2-by in there to extend the forearm to make the barrel not look so long. The original stock was way too flexible in the forearm and all of the stuff I added makes it about right.

Did you forget the levitating gas that was injected in order for the rifle to magically float in the air?
I'm not gonna shoot here. I'm gonna shoot waaaaaaaay over there!
