It's called EC Paint. It's a camoflage paint for weapons, vehicles and other equipment. No, didn't sand it at all. Just cleaned it.

my mini 30

This is a 189 series, ruger tells me it is a .311 bore.
Clark did the trigger 2 stage, the last stage breaks cleanly at 3 lbs.
My gun smith friend put a threaded port on it the ports have an 11 degree forward port that keeps muzzle blast away from the shooter.
The strut was formed by cheaper then dirt rails that he milled the sides off for me also made the strut itself from an old 17 hmr barrel that he cut-off and drilled out, and threaded so I can put 90 wieght oil in it.

My group was shot at 106 yds with Wolf brand hollow point surplus.

Is the oil just to weigh the front end down?

oil in strut

From what I read, and past expericence with bowhunting, it acts like a dampening device. I really do not think it adds that much wieght.

ah, I can see how that'd work, cool. Not a big fan of the big clamps, though. They might absorb more heat, etc. but I like the smaller clamps, not as bulky. Can't see it making THAT big of a difference either (small clamps vs larger). JMO.

Your stock looks like it has some nice tiger striping, any chance of seeing a picture of it?

Would not mind getting a smaller set of clamps, sure they would cost big

Scanner and Zenman, thanks for the pics. I've been thinking about getting the SCAR stock for my 188 series stainless, now it's definately getting ordered.

Hi Jtwodogs,

Nice looking stock you've got there.....is that walnut? Looks a bit like tiger maple, is the striping the wood or some sort of stain technique? I'm currently starting a project building my own stock out of a black walnut we cut down.

I bought the gun used off of another trader board, and that is the way it came. I believe it to be birch, to be honest I do not know wether it is in the stain or the wood.
I do know that you will need to let that walnut cure at min. 2 years before you start to work with, but you may already know that, also there is a way to get more figure out of your wood when you get ready to cut it, called quarter sawn, a lumber yard can do that for you and it is the best way to get the most firgure in a stock.

I know this is off topic, I have a thread in the Mini14 section on this stock project, but....

You really think 2 years? I know it would be a while, but I've been talking about keeping it in a garage with a wood stove burning constantly. I was thinking if I milled it down to a smaller size while green, leaving plenty of extra room of course, and set it in the garage it would speed up the process to maybe 6 mos.? maybe less? I realize if I try and speed up the process too much, I will lose quality of the stock. I would like to find a happy medium between waiting 2 years and drying it too fast and splitting. If you've got more input on this I might suggest posting it in the right thread, here.....

Thanks!

beautiful minis

I have a stock m30 black synthetic/stainless. My question is where did some of you get these wood stocks. They are awesome when combined with the upper wooden handguard, if anyone can steer me in the right direction I'd greatly appreciate it. Ordered Accustrut-LT stainless today can't wait til it gets here.
