PostSubject: Started on a stock today   May 24th 2016, 3:39 pm

WELL over a year ago I bought multiple side locks and one was still sitting in the corner because it needed the most work.

I took it out in the shop today and have most of the stock shaped with 150 grit sand paper, still have to file some metal down to fit/look properly but shes coming along.

She looks to have a nice stripe/birds eye pattern in the maple so that's a very big plus.

The bad part is the USA barrel for the CVA Mountain Rifle is a tad rough but I'll give it a try first with my polishing lube and see how it turns out. If not, Off to Hoyt for a liner.

I'll get some pictures of her later on as I make progress. Just going to need a lot of work on the triggers and the lock, plus the metal trim parts.

This is the very early edition of the MR with the nice german silver patch box and fancy wood. Luckily the guy that rough shaped it and slapped clear on it ( Its a kit ) was nice enough to leave me room to work with!

What are you using for your shoot out lube?  I also have a very rough Renegade barrel, that's been sitting for a while.

Do a search, on this forum?  I can't find the search function button or window. Crying or Very sad  I'm lucky I can post. Laughing

How about FrontierGander just telling us where to get his "shoot out" magic potion.  Or is it like "Love Potion Number Nine" ? where you have to:
Take your "troubles down to Madame Ruth
You know that gypsy with the gold-capped tooth
She's got a pad down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine
Sellin' little bottles of" shoot out magic number Nine "

(with apologies to Neil Diamond for messing with his lyrics)

Except that monotone "wonder" didn't write it. It was written by the guys that wrote most of The Coasters songs, "Searchin'" and "Yakety Yak" etc. I think they wrote "Hound Dog" too.

Neil Diamond and Johnny Cash should both be honored for achieving the most success with the least amount of talent. Just my opinion.

patocazador - I checked (googled it) and your correct, the song was written by: Jerry Leiber and Mike Stroller.  Guess it was a CRS moment. Embarassed

Bob,
I never listened to Neil Diamond, but you are correct about Johnny Cash who went far on debatable talent. I always felt Johnny could not hold a candle to Marty Robbins.

Marty Robbins had a lot of talent. It was not all in music. He won at least one NASCAR race.

I just looked it up. I was wrong. He never won a race but had 7 top ten finishes.

He took the carburetor restrictors out before a Talladega race and ran 15 mph faster. ("He ran many of the big super-speedway races including Talladega Superspeedway in 1972, when he stunned the competition by turning laps that were 15 mph faster than his qualifying time. Apparently, in his motel room, Robbins had knocked the NASCAR-mandated restrictors out of his carburetor. After the race, NASCAR tried to give him the Rookie of the Race award, but Robbins would not accept it, admitting he was illegal because he "just wanted to see what it was like to run up front for once.")
