Very nice looking rifle. What bullets are you shooting in it and is there any particle reason why you went with the 1-20 twist as opposed to the faster 1-14 or 1-18.

Thank you Mike and you are more than welcome....

skb2706,

this rifle is going to a customer in Indiania for "deer hunting". The 1-20" twist was chosen because the heaviest bullet weight that will be used is 180 gr.. Also, the 1-20" twist rate will allow for an extra velocity gain of some 150 to 200 fps. over the more standard 1-14" twist....

A very nice rifle DS. Seems that your work is every bit as good as a now "retired" member we used to have here.

Did you make the stock as well or is it a commercial item? I'm starting to see more laminated stocks, but I must admit I am a pretty traditional sort of a guy and much prefer a nice piece of well grained solid timber.

Cheers, Vince

Thank you Vince...

This was my first attempt at stock making and with all the time involved in it, I won't be making another one anytime soon....

two questions I have about "barrel stubbing"...I am familiar with how you do it but -
Does the scope mount attach to the stub or the barrel or both ?

Who assumes liability if the barrel lug weld should fail - the original manufacturer or you as the after market modifier ?

Depending on the barrel contour, length and weight, I will usually attach the base to the barrel...

I Rockwell test the weld and the stub before I ever start machining. I also do not and will not rebarrel with a questionable caliber that might over stress the weld in the first place....

My drool dries up from the keeboard already Smile

Very nice!!
I just notice that it is another "lefty" gun..

How much "stub" do you leave off the original around the breech DS?

This is NOT just a lefty but an ambidextrous style stock...

When I STUB an Encore factory barrel, I cut the barrel back enough to remove all the "taper" to where I am just working with the straight shank section of the chamber / lug area....
