It seems as though I can never leave well enough alone. While I like the feel of Ruger’s factory walnut (sort of ) stocks well enough, I had a piece of highly figured flamed maple that was just screaming for a use. Hmmm… what could I do with that? Aha! This work was 90% hand tools, the exception being the use of a drill press for accuracy in drilling for the connecting bolt and escutheons, and to bore a “mortice” for the emblem. This was a quick project that actually has yeilded something unique, fits my hand better, and has provided a ton of pleasure! The only complaint I have with it is that my son likes this setup waaayyy too much!
