I finally made the final improvements to my Savage B&C stock. It is an ugly ass stock, there's no hiding that, but its also a good improvement to your rifle without breaking the bank. So, I thought I would post up some pictures for some to see that you can make improvements to it to help it to become less of an eye sore. I also sanded the barrel channel wider, bedded the action and textured.

Let me know what you think.

Here is what it started life as

Then bedding of the action. Need to do some patching, devcon doesnt mix well when it's old

Then texture to the grips and sanding down of the fore end while lapping the rings. Multi tasking

End result

When I first bought my 10 it was a .308 sitting in a choate sniper wearing a Simmons Aetec

Looks great man! I really like the color combos of green/black that you went with. Digging the texture job too. How's it shoot after bedding?
