The finished 6x47 Lapua I just sold.

Joel Russo A5L stock in Black and Brown , fitted for a better grip right handed , large oversized contured pillers and fully bedded with over 1 pound of Devcon liquid steel , finished with 18 rubbed in coats of Helmsman Spar urethane semi gloss .

    I'm certainly gonna build another one but I gotta make sure the folks are taken care of first.
    I think I may go a full custom the next go around , I sure like the way the Bat and Nesika actions feel and I'm kinda tired of looking at and working on everybody elses. I've also gotten my paws a on a couple Surgen actions and they are also very nice.

    Very nice James.

    I like the way you shaped the rear tang area, I just may have to copy off you on my next stock.

    Good luck to Mr. Watters, and if the deal falls through call me.
