98 Mauser in California English Walnut
98 Mauser Grip
98 Mauser Forearm

   This drop-dead-gorgeous piece of California english walnut graces a 98 Mauser in .280 Remington.  The stock was built in the Classic style with a shadow line cheekpiece, deeply fluted comb and a sculpted shelf beneath the bolt stop.  The action, trigger guard and 2" of the barrel were epoxy bedded for full contact with the remainder of the barrel left free-floating.

    A solid rubber pad, metal grip cap and ebony forend tip were fitted.  Checkering was an elaborate 22 lpi fleur-de-lis pattern of my own design.  Total labor charges were based on the 70 hours it took to complete this project, with the checkering contributing to a large portion of the final cost.
