Some kind of desert cammo huh. I think I am going to try and do a gap pattern like my manners.

To get the action out of the stock require's fineness. I took apart my rifles from the builders here and examined their work, then watched and read everything I could find. Im pleased with it and your, your own worst critic.
I agree we are hard on ourselves . I started doing most of my own work because I got tired of dealing with gunsmiths and being charged a fortune to do some quite ordinary work . Sometimes I would look at the work they did and be disappointed for the money .
I have only finished wood stocks before painting is new to me.
Howa is a good rifle I have one , a 1 of 500 celebration rifle in 223 , model is " Australian Mountaineer" You will not have heard of it in the USA it is basically a Howa 1500 with a select quality barrel .
The history behind Howa rifles from Japan is that the original Howa's were designed in Australia by Commercial Marketing Company CMC . They were called the CMC Mountaineer . My rifle is a commemorative model of that history .
That is the best I can remember.
I work from my mind , I study a problem and develop possible fix's in my head and I mull them over and over in my head for a while , even in my sleep I can plan things and then select the most logical and common sense approach . Made a few mistakes but in general I end up with pretty much what the pros do anyway .
Actually I can go to sleep thinking about a problem and wake up with the answer.
Don't ask me how it works I have no idea.

If you already have a rifle in gap camo, I would recommend you do the same with this rifle. My personal preference makes my rifles 'family-up' so they look pretty much the same and moving from one rifle to another is merely a change in horsepower.

Post some pics of your other rifle in gap.

Re: Finally, Finally I have it ready to shoot

Those are some good lookin' shootin' sticks. So how about gap camo on your new rifle but in a different color palette. Of these two, I would opt for the light tan/light green/light gray.

Re: Finally, Finally I have it ready to shoot

Ya I want to do the top one. Thinking paint brown, tape it, paint green tape it, paint tan. What do you think? Does that sound correct?
