    Default adj. length of pull

    since we don't have a smithing forum suppose this will do here.

    Never did finish what I started a yr. or so back-a Model 70 Classic CRF rebarrreled to a .338-06 from what was a .270 caliber. The PacNor #4 Super Match(believe it was) just made it into the barrel channel, slim as it was-whew! Hogged the heck out of it and it did not look pretty at all until I started to bed it with Marine-Tex, now we have weight foward abit, I personally like it that way.

    Set it up with NECG barrel band front with a FO and a Masterpiece rear. got rid of the molded injected metal of a claw extractor and replaced it with a Williams-a good thing. Took everything down to bare metal and finished it off with an airbrush and some Cerakote-Combat Blk.

    Getting to it , the length of pull for my daughter is like 13 1/2" certainly as my wife tried out my 13 5/8's LOP Rem. 30 .338-06 which is a winter gun/ATV and agrees it is just fine. Now what is the preferred method of shortening the stock? Been thinking of a belt sander but never used one before believe it or not. Seems that between the ends of the sander is wheels and nothing in the middle-would that cause uneven taking away of wood?

    simple question?

    regards,

    regards,
    I use a power miter box saw to shorten the length of pull. A 12" disk sander to flatten the butt. At this point with the sander is where you can add cast. Adjust the heel or toe to suit. This is also where the machine I use to grind the pad comes in handy.

    By the way your Williams extractor is cast. Look on the backside and you will see the cast in logo. Doesn't matter one whit. They work without problems.
