    After a long winter I finally got JUDD's new stick all buttoned up. He has it listed also under the gun photos as " Jacklyn " This is a new laminate company (Cousineau Wood Products) with vibrate colors. The black is actually black not gray and the orange is very bright. Hopefully as soon as the weather warms up a little more we'll get some load testing done.

    Here are the specs of the 7mm Dakota:

    BAT model HR single shot action
    BAT aluminum ADL trigger guard
    BAT 1 piece Rings
    Jewel Trigger set at a heavy 3 oz.
    Broughton 5C / 7.9B contour / 1-9 twist finished at 32"
    3 Port Muscle Brake
    Russo Wildcat Thumbhole Stock
    Automotive clearcoat
    Pachmayr Decelorator Pad
    Pillar Bedded
    Sightron 8-32 x 56
    All metal work was high luster polished

    Another fine looking Russo stock and a awesome Kevin build. It was between that color or olive and blk. for my next build. I choose the olive and blk. Great minds think alike.lightbulb For sure the next one.
    Nice looking rifle. Fully polished. The only way to go!!!

    Kevin,

    Another example of great craftsmanship!!!

    I have a question: What's holding the butt up in the first two pics? You have some kind of anti-gravity innovation??lightbulb

    I put a piece of paper towel under the pistol grip and have it resting on the rock.

    Some how I knew it wasn't touching that rock in any way!

    Which goes to show you attention to detail.

    That rock is getting pretty famous.:)

    That is a seriously sick looking stick. VERY nice!!!

    I like your selection of parts and pieces, too. I love anything on a BAT but you used some awesome pieces to build around that BAT as well. Well done Sir!
