    The stock and the rust bluing look fantastic. I read the whole thread but can't recall if you mentioned the timber species the stock was made from. To save me going back through the whole thread can you let me know please?

    I also like your method for 'timing' the screw slots. I'll definitely be using that in future.

    Thanks for the comments.

    The timber is Australian grown European Walnut (Juglans Regia) from Hatchers Rifle Stocks here in Australia. It turned out to be nice wood and is graded as XXX grade. The only part on the blank I don't like is a little area on the grip that just looks a bit muddy. I will probably checker it down the track when I can come up with a pattern that would fit that area.

    I also plan to checker part of the buttstock too at some point.
