A .22. Just a plain 10/22, except mine is going to be better than any 10/22 on the planet! Well, maybe that's a silly statement, but I'm building an heirloom quality shooter. I like shooting .22 rifles, and have never had a really nice one. It all started when my Dad got me a .17 HMR for Christmas a couple of years ago. I have shot a fly on my target with that little tack driver! Then I saw someone online who had rather customized his .17 HMR rifle: I've tricked out some rimfire pistols, but decided I wanted to do so with a rifle. Sad thing is, it gets into 1911 territory price-wise. I want it though, and you only live once. And it won't cost much to shoot, and there won't be another one like it. Or even almost like it! Here's the rifle I'm basing my stock after: The owner of that rifle designed the stock himself, and "Tuck" made and finished it. In his own words he I am taking his design (that to my knowledge exists only on that rifle in the above photo), and having a piece of exhibition grade claro walnut made into its' shape. Here's some Claro walnut: I have requested a single piece with vertical striping, burl/swirls okay, but try to avoid two tone. I should have a photo of the rough cut stock this evening. The tiger maple stock in the above photo is coated with orange candy high gloss automotive urethane. I am leaning towards natural, and probably less glossy, but there is plenty of time. We are probably looking at spring before the stock is finished. In the meantime, I need to look into scopes, barrels, triggers, receivers, etc. Leaning Kidd on some of it, can't afford the whole rifle built that nice, though. Well, I *could* but knowing I could have bought a Valor is one thing, knowing I could have bought a GI No-Name is another!
