Gentlemen.
Here are the preliminary result.
I have ordered a scope for the rifle and as soon as I get it I just have to go hunting.
The rest of this project must wait till after some hunting.

Looks like a Sako!

What scope are you aiming to put on it? Can't help myself, saying that again.

Well, then I'm gonna quote my self

John, I have given this a lot of thoughts. First i bought a new Zeiss Conquest dl 3-12X50 for this project but after just a few looks at the scope I just can't stand it on this little rifle. The "batterybox" is just ugly!
My second plan was to put on a smaller scope like a Leupold 2-7 or a 3-9 I have laying around, but last night I got hold of a five years old 2,5-10X50 Zeiss classic in mint condition as well, and since I will use this rifle for hunting in low light conditions like baiting fox at night, as well as daylight I will fit two scopes. The Zeiss and one of the Leupolds. But time will tell.

It is time to call it a day and close down this project.
This is what I managed to do.
Thanks for your comments and have a great weekend my friends

It took some serios time to finish this rifle, but last night I were able to finally mount the sling.

Now it's time to zero the scope and wait for the 10th of august (roe buck season opening).

Looks good, Rino, but that stock's figure deserves better pictures.

I like it. A nice semi- classic Euro style.
