    as you can see it is almost a copy of Shawn's LRKM but it is disigned for the winchester model 70 crf. it is 42 inches with a 30inch barrel with a 3 inch or so muzzle brake without a recoil pad. if i used this with my 26" sporter barrel with a muzzle brake i will have a nice lightwieght rifle at a total length of roughly 38 inches. in comparison my current rifle is 47.5inches in a choate varmint stock

    Looks pretty cool. My carbon tube gun build was almost going to be a bull pup but decided I didn't want to fiddle with a trigger acuator rod and wanted a repeater. I would love to see someone build an aluminum bull pup repeater.

    I was thinking about making it a repeater but I would have to make the action farther up from the stock allowing a place for a bag to ride and I wanted to make it very short and use as little material as possible. I will have to try and make a repeater tomorrow if I have time

    It looks just like Shawn's stock to the T.

    A friend of mine designed his out of wood, and brought it to me to make him a laminated stock. Here a picture of his Edge in the stock I made him.

    Don't you need to add some kind of pistol grip to hold on to when you pull the trigger so the whole thing won't fly out of your left hand ??????

    how does the trigger work on that rifle I still need to figure that out also hot does the scope stay on it?
    That is a really nice stock you made! I wood love to make one out of wood but I don't like the idea of carrying it through brush and scratching it and i like the idea of an aluminum one.

    Judging by the block design by the trigger guard, it appears he's designed it to utilize an AR grip. That's just what it looks like to me.

    Ooops, sorry, I didn't make it to page 2 before I posted. My bad. But it is good to know I was spot-on. LOL

    He used some sort of trigger linkage like the XP style. It is or was comercially available at the time. The scope is mounted to a base that is mounted to a mini block that is bedded into the stock. Same concept as a barrel block design for a target rifle.
