Iowegan - U R THE MAN !!! I will def be ordering your book ! Many Thanks !
This has been a fun project. Picked up a beat up Ruger Mark II stainless target model with 10" bull barrell. The finish was incredibly ugly - the person I got it from attempted to polish it but ended up with uneven bright splotches on the whole gun.
I took the gun completey apart and sandblasted it and put it back using Volquartsen innards. I was going to repolish the outside and have it look all shiny but I kinda liked thye dull sandblasted finish.
I had the bipod and scope from an old gun I rarely shoot so on they went. Got the grips from an old guy at a gun show for 30.00 bucks
Got it sighted in yesterday and am shooting baseball sized groups at 100 yards. my 11 yo likes it cause it "looks beastly"
Eventually would like to out on a suppressor but a little pricey for me now
