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?
