I finished the rifle that I modified for my son the other day and gave it to him for his birthday yesturday. I cut down the stock on my 22-250 and posted the beginning of the process the other day and figured I would show you guys the end result. Here is the rifle before I started.Posted Image and here's one as I started the project.Posted Imagehere is the copleted rifle.Posted Image And here is one with the rifle, lanyard and 2 calls I made him. The calls are made from the piece of stock that I cut off of the rifle.Posted Image All he can talk about now is how long it will be before he can take the hunter safety coarse. Thanks for looking, Ron

I personally think the end result is amazingly beautiful. I would think a kid would like it either way though! Maybe even camo more than wood.....

I wanted to camo it again so I didn't have to remove any camo, just repaint it but he wanted the stock to be natural so I sanded the paint off of the stock and removed it from the barrel, receiver and scope with acetone and gun scrubber. I have enough wood to make another call or 2 so I may make a coule for myself with that. I was going to cut the barrel down also but figured it would only drop the weight by a half a pound or less so it will have a 22" barrel instead of an 18" barrel.

Very nice work with both the rifle and the young man. You know what would be really special would be if you were to make him a call also out of the cut off wood. That way he could call in and kill a coyote all with (pieces of) the rifle that dad gave him. That would be about as good a Kodak moment as there could be. Just a thought. And again, great going on both :)

He said the calls were for the boy in the post where he posted the picture of them.
