It has been a long day. I started installing a laminate wood floor in a friends yoga studio. The room is 18'3" by 21'6". I got the carpeting and padding out, put down the new underlayment and got about 1/4 of the flooring in today. I hope to finish it up tomorrow. I am tired and my knees are screaming at me.

That sounds like work. I spend a few hours each day this week polishing our hardwood floors. Lotta work but it looks nice.

The Carbine has a new shape.

I had some time on my hands today. It was too damn cold to go to the range, it is indoors but no heat. I have shot in there in this cold last year and the air circulation system turns it into a walk in freezer.
Anyway I started on my reshaping project on the Carbine.

The first thing that had to go was the barrel band recess.



Next was a start of a groove for a pistol grip.



After a lot of filing, smoothing,rounding off sharp edges, and sanding.


This stock has some very nice grain.
I may thin the grip down a little more in front of the palm swell.


The fore end tapered back at 15 degrees.



I like the contrast with the light wood and the black. I was thinking maybe a walnut stain but it looks good natural.



On the left side I just rounded off sharp edges and lowered the area in front of the comb to give my thumb a groove to rest in. I may take that down a little bit more. It is a right handed rifle now.


What do you think?

Thank you both. The peep is the Williams Ace in the Hole. I ordered it from Ruger with the 20% discount. It works nice but I am thinking about changing out the red front fiber optic with a green one. The green on my Crosman stands out better in low light. I think I can heat up the front of the pipe and push it out from the rear.
I think I am going to finish it natural. If I change my mind later I can always strip, sand, and stain it.

That's lookin a lot better. The way the front of the foregrip angles back reminds me of a Remington 597.
The green fiber optics is what I see best too.

You could stripe it like I did on Mini14 which looked like your 10-22 wood when I started .

I'm thinking I might part with my Charger.
I'll post a picture with all of the acessories today.
My battery is too low for the camera to work, so I'll have to charge it.
I checked what accessories I have: 2-25 & 3-30 round bananna clips with easy loader, 6-10 round ruger mags, with Bipod.
There is also a barrel nut and alum flash hider.
That fast loader for the bananna clips works like a charm, just pour the 22's in and it aligns the bullets and feeds the injector knob.

Someone on the Ruger Forum just bought one and said he wants to accessorize it. I told him not to touch the stock. that thing is beautiful. I wouldn't even drill it for a sling.

If your price is right I will drive up and pick it up!

Thanks, I am leaning toward leaving it natural, and I have a little more thinning to do on the grip and fore end.

SeeBee, We can reach an agreement.
I think it is considered a pistol, so all NC laws apply.
Battery is charged and here is the picture.
I'll send a contact pm to you.
Not shown is the Weaver rail on the top.

SeeBee,
The Ruger is sold as of this morning.
The guy picked it up and I am out of the Ruger business.
