You did good Joe. Before it was a good utility rifle and now it's turned into a classic. Either way it's yours and you are the one who needs to be satisfied. Now go scratch it up hunting, lol. Dan
Thats the plan Dan. Those marks acquired while in the woods add the value of memories. I don’t fret over those little marks. I don’t neglect my rifles but if you hunt with them it will happen.
I have a Remington 870 that I bought new in ‘95 that I’m going to finish with this same Durablue. It’s taken many many pheasant, rabbit, and a couple turkeys with the field barrel. As well as 8 deer with the rifled slug barrel. The wood is still in great shape but the blueing is well worn.

Looks great! I'm also looking at the Prairie Hunter for my Tikka
Glad you got what you wanted
I had them fit a Pachmeyer Decelerator to the butt, and their standard LOP fits me nicely. I also really like the slim wrist in the grip area. I dislike a fat stock in the grip. I think they offer quality gunstocks.

I had their heritage for a M77 mkII before and I loved it. I'll get a shorter LOP when I eventually do get one. The gun I have it on has a thick grip and that's why I don't like it, I so understand.

That’s the biggest complaint I have with most composite stocks manufacturers use. The grip feels too beefy and thick.

After a trip to the range on Saturday for the first firing after her facelift. I dug out the Devcon, blue painters tape, and exact-o knife to bed the action. Turned out just as it should. Nice and snug with no sign it was bedded when you look at the rifle. I’ll see if it improved groups next weekend. It was a sub moa rifle so I guess it was more for my piece of mind than anything else.
