    It fits my cheek perfectly now, but I think another 1/2" off the bottom edge will help.
    I don't know if it's Fajen or Bishop but it came with a Monte Carlo comb with thick cheek piece so that may have done it. I used talc on my face to "spot" the cheek piece like you said. I have a slender face and long neck so shaped for me may "look" odd

    sure do like what you are doing. This is assuring to me to never make a stock for one of these!

    I managed to mess with it a little lately. Going slow trying to avoid booboos. To the possible dismay of some, I have decided to use pecan for contrasting grip cap and forend tip. The tree it came from was here when the Indians lived here. Here's some pics; when I get close, I'll install the barrel to finish inletting.

    Pecan tip and cap a little different, I like different though. Are they glued on in the last photo, grip cap looks to be?

    Grip cap is glued on and rough shaped. I still need to saw out a tip from the same plank. A summer wind shear a couple years back took down two 15" caliper limbs that I had a local sawmill cut into planks.

    Nothing wrong with different, there's already plenty ebony and rosewood being used for those purposes, my brother used apple wood from his tree.

    I salute any man willing to take on stock work. Like the pecan, too -- and the history in it.

    I got a little farther but I feel I'd better fit and headspace the barrel, then finish inletting. I'll rent the reamer soon.

    "I got a little farther but I feel I'd better fit and headspace the barrel, then finish inletting. I'll rent the reamer soon." Looks chambered to me, was it short chambered

    Yes, it is short chambered. By about a quarter inch.

    That "quarter inch" reminds me of when I guessed a rooster's weight and missed it by 8 pounds......

    That's interesting that PacNor sends out "short chambered" barrels like that.

    Looking good TbG.

    I had my machinist brother run the reamer into the barrel on the lathe to "almost" full depth. I will finish it by hand.
    Special thanks to Der Gerbirgsjager for advice and expertise on this project!

    Square threads? I am going to have to cut square threads?
    I did that last week on an old Savage 1899.

    Yes sir, Square threads. Please tell us more about the project in the picture. Those are good looking carbines.

    I got a made in 1902 Win1895 in 30 Gov [30-40 Krag] in 2013, and bought a 250 Krag reamer for it, but have not used it.
    I got a made in 1900 Krag in 2017 and put an SK scope mount on it, with some modification the stock. It has a perfect bore. I got a sporter stock for it and planned to drill and tap the rifle with 1/4-28* on the bottom for a forward action screw and drill and tap 10-32 on the side to replace the SK strap.
    But then in 2018 I got a made in 1902 Krag reblued with bad bore and complete stock.

    My revised plan is to put the perfect bore together with the complete stock and have one original rifle.
    The reblued action will get the sporter stock, the scope mount, and a Lilja or Bartlein stainless barrel in 250 Krag. This could be a hunting rifle for October 2019.

    * Years ago, someone already thought of that on this forum. You pillar mount enough Rem700 rifles, and you want to turn everything into a Rem700

    That sounds like a great plan. I worked on my forend tip last night until I missed the AC and went back inside.....
