    I am pleased with the way the stock turned out. It is my first shot at inletting. I sanded it to 600 grit wet or dry and finished with Tru Oil. I probably have close to 40 hours in the wood all together.

    I haven't sighted it in yet, but it should be pretty accurate. The M1922 was a trainer, but also used in match competition. The barrel is tapped for scope blocks and I suspect it is a better quality. The rifling is in excellent condition.

    I have wanted to build a 1903 sporter for many years, but really don't have a need for the 30-06. The 22 fills the bill, and I will be able to get some use out of it as well.

    started a topic $100 Honey

    $100 Honey

    A month or so ago, I was at an auction and picked up a barreled action and a semi-inletted stock.

    The action was a Springfield 1903 that had an M1922, 22 cal barrel and bolt installed on it. Some of the work had been done, and there was a cigar box of parts with it. I got it all for $50.00.

    Later in the same auction, I picked up a semi-inletted Fajen stock for $20.00.

    The cigar box had the magazine, a Buehler low scope mount and a Timney trigger.

    I added a Lyman All American 6X scope I picked up at another auction a year or so ago for $10.00, and after a bit of work, I ended up with this;








    Some of the fun included adapting the 03 action to accept the M2 magazine, so it is a repeater and modifying a set of Weaver rings to the Buehler mount.

    With all the bits & pieces, I have less than a total of $100.00 invested. These projects are what make the home shop pay off.
