This is the one that started out as a .25/20 but I didn't like the bore on that barrel. So I decided to make another 'Super Needle' rifle to go with my .17 Mk IV. All I have to do now is get it to the gunsmith to have the scope drilled and mounted. My job, the wood and case coloring is done.

Al, this is what it will look like when you get yours done.

I keep emptying out parts boxes and our wood barn. I am truly sorry this may be the last slab of the of this black walnut in the barn. Built some pretty guns with it.

But only old men are practicing it.
Unfortunately you are correct. My brother and I have both tried to get our sons interested in doing this work. None of them what to mess with it. A gunsmith friend of mine has frequently tried to get me to do commercial stocks for his customers. No way. I do them for me and me only. I do, do occasional repairs for friends. But no full blown stocks.

Thank you. I checked it out. I am looking for any left over Micro Bed bedding material. Pro Bed 2000 from High Score come as close to Micro Bed as anything currently on the market. I was just hopeing one of the forum members had a tube or two of the old Micro Bed stuff. They haven't made it for at least 20yrs. I am on my last tube.
