The stock started life as a French Walnut 2½" X 8" plank The Bbl. is 18½", Timney trigger etc.

I just love that Mannlicher stock. Something about a full stocked rifle.
Been considering the same treatment for my .270 FN Mauser.
Should the right stock come along it will be wearing one.

I also have a 10/22 carbine with the full stock, it's the cutest little thing.
