Hey Beeker -
That's a beauty. That's cool about the FN action too.
The stock on mine is a replacement too. When I first
spotted it I thought it was walnut and swallowed hard.
But after looking it over, it is that same wood that all
of the replacement stocks seen to be made out of. I have
no idea what it is, but it seems serviceable enough, if
a bit heavy.
Tell me more about that vintage rifle match. I was shooting
today over a Dietz's range in NB and somebody mentioned that
to me, but I was so distracted with my wife and one of her
friends that is learning to shoot that I lost track of that guy
and didn't get to follow up with him.
