    Building a custom rifle-bipod added

    I decided it has been a long time since I had a rifle or handgun that was "unique" among its peers. With my budget not being what it was, I decided that since my little H & R .22 Hornet shoots as well as it does, that would be a perfect little gun to play around with and make it into a little custom gun. I ordered a bi-pod last week for it, and tomorrow I hope to start free floating the barrel. I also decided to give it a bit of a flair. Some may like it, others hate it, but this way you know the caliber. I did a pattern of a hornet on the side of the stock, burned it in with a woodburner and then colored it in black. Then I stained over the top of the design to seal it all in. It is certainly an eye catcher. Here are some pics of what it was like when I first got it, and here it is today. I will take more when the bi-pod arrives.

    Re: Building a custom rifle

    Now that's a cool idea! I like it.
    If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.////////
    I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure.

    Re: Building a custom rifle

    I think it is a nice personalization.

    Someone asks you the caliber just claim .22 and point at the stock. Any person into firearms will get it.

    Re: Building a custom rifle

    David,
    Very nice touch. I really like the burn-in you did.
    No doubt that it's a hornet now.
    Personalization is not always a bad thing.
    Does that make it a BBQ rifle?
    Teach them the truth, and let them sort thru the cobwebs of liberalism that have infested their minds.
    When the time comes that I don't want a new gun, call the undertaker!
    When they come for your guns, give them the ammo first!

    Re: Building a custom rifle

    Maybe I should carve an F-16 into the stock of my H&R.... it's in .22 Jet.

    Re: Building a custom rifle

    Does that mean I have to carve A-10 Warthogs on the stocks of my Garands?????
