Did you make that wood stock in the pic?
Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom.
It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.

sorry, I've been away
Yes, I made the stock from burly maple
Forearm is spalted sycamore
If shooting a large caliber,
Use two hands!
Thanks,
Jimmy

follow up...switched the radial barrel and bolt to the competition gun...clocked the Miculek comp... with the greatly lightened bolt and carrier.... Enidine hydraulic rifle length buffer... and comp there is very little dot movement...... now the problem is my vision.. the heat and allergies has really played hell with my right eye, and am not seeing a single dot in the Venom...  will give it a shake down at the August match in Ruskin next Sunday...I found that I was inserting the magazines too high with the bolt open, and had clearance with them pulled down to the catch shelf... regards

It's been a while now.  What did you settle on?  Oh...and pics.  Still no pics.

My latest, a Reeder Bbl in 30 Raptor:

...somehow we got off the subject
If shooting a large caliber,
Use two hands!
