Progress is slowly creeping onwards – I’ve laminated the red beech blank together, ready to ship, and the CAD for the P2 prototype is just about finished. Here’s a brief summary of the improvements from P1 (top) to P2 (bottom) In tangentially related news, I’ll soon be adding the Ruger M77 hawkeye geometry as an… Continue reading P2 vs P1

Rob at HTC did an AMAZING job! Now to do a bunch of sanding, a bit of dremel-ing, check fitting, seal the inside, stick it together, sand the outside, bed the action, seal the outside….
Machining of the P1 prototype is underway! Superthanks to Rob from High Tech Carving for the WIP photos.
After a lot of mucking around, stalling, being stalled, things are looking positive to get prototypes 1 & 2 built out of Wellington. I’m not doing any further development on the stock until I get P1 back in my hands, as I think at this stage it will be largely pointless as there will be… Continue reading Back to it

This design would only have carbon in the forend (the adjustable cheek piece is optional, I guess), and would only require a single sided… Continue reading Hybrid stock
