first rifle build.

Well here we go. First time.
bought a precarve stock from dave keck on fri morning. He had the stock profile and barrel in it I wanted.
I had to buy it.
hate when that happens. Anyway.
barrel got breech plug installed fri afternoon. Breech plug and barrel got put in sat. Took all day to get seated. Today im putting lugs in barrel.
my goal is to get barrel pinned in stock next month. Hopefully preventing any warpage of stock. Then will see how much gets done.
archery season getting close.

this should be fun.

Re: first rifle build.

Well, what was the profile and barrel? Too generic!

Anybody can shoot deer on the farm ground....You earn it in the mountains.......

Well here are a few pics of my
Rifle. It's far from perfect.
But it's mine. I hope it shoots
Good. May not know that till next year. But I hope it does good.
Nothing fancy just function.
I like them lock-stock and barrel.
