    I've owned this MK2 HW77K for almost 18months now, still isn't finished.:D It was bought for £70 which should say what sort of condition it was in.:eek: It did have a reasonable lefthand Tyrolean stock though, which i tidied up and sold on, the action had been painted and was a combination of paint, bare metal and a very light coating of rust.
    The action was stripped and sent away for re- blueing and tuning to Dave hall, who also fitted a V-MACH muzzle brake i bought.
    I got a very nice walnut blank off of Dave too, and again he helped out by getting it inletted for me, only problem was, Customstock who did the inletting have to do the initial shaping before they can inlet and their CS1000 is the biggest design that would leave me the most amout of wood to play with afterwards, i'm not a fan of the CS1000 design and to try to leave a reasonable amout of wood in the forend to give a deep stock i had to have it made adjustable, i went to Dave tomlinson at Redfearns for this. He and Roy ironmonger make and fit the adjuster mechanisms, i got Dave to do the cheeckpiece too while he was at it.
    So, this is what the gun looked like when i bought it...

    The Tyrolean stock finished, with my HW97K acion sitting in it.

    The action back...looking all pretty and shiney!

    The walnut blank that would become the stock for it.

    The stock when i got it back, before starting to shape and sand it.

    And the latest pics, some shaping done to lessen the large drop between the forend, hole cut to place thumb of trigger hand vertical, cheeckpiece and rear of stock design altered, forend altered again.

    And i've started drilling the pistol grip and rear of stock for some lead filled copper pipe to adjust the balance of the gun, as it's too front heavy with the stock as is. The pistol grip will have an ally spacer and rosewood cap.:)

    When Lukas can get round to it i suppose, it's on his list but he's in the middle of moving house, his wife expecting, and the shed load of work he has on already. I'm not in a rush.:)

    I added some lead filled copper pipe on Saturday, one piece in the pistol grip and a couple of larger ones into the butt secton of the stock. My HW97K stock has three pieces of lead/copper fitted into the butt of the stock, the balance point of both guns was too far forward for my liking, the lead makes the rifle more neutral. As an added bonus the extra weight helps tame some of the recoil.

    The pipe is then sealed into place to stop any movement/vibration, and when set, finished flush with the woodwork.

    The pistol grip isn't quite deep enough, so to sort that and cover over the lead i am adding an ally spacer and some rosewood.:)

    If i was going to have one fitted again to this gun i'd have the barrel cut down as the R.A.C.E muzzle brake really ads to the length of the gun, but a 97K's barrel is shorter anyway. It does away with the silly MK2 underlever release catch that my gun had...and looks cool too.:cool::D
