    Thanks Phil, that's some nice wood work.
    I like the idea of the BR Hamsters as it keeps the rifle a bit more multi purpose.
    Now all I need now is to save up for an Anschutz... Might take some time.

    Those hamsters look great! Will have to order one of those for the Club stock I reckon.

    Ye
    It slips on and off in a jiffy, useful if you gun doubles up as an HFT-Benchrest

    Them bench rest wedges are a nice simple addition, a smidge under 3" wide too.

    It will be worth looking at the prices for an action only, and having a stock built to your own spec. Last time I looked it worked out much the same price.
    This was for the club/junior and black air models, not the posher offerings from anschutz. They are way dearer.

    Thanks for that. I hadn't really thought of doing it that way. I'll have to look into it when if I manage to get the funds together. Especially if it works out similar to a club stock 9015. Cheers:).

    Every rifle iv tried for benchrest, iv always add something to it to make the stock better. so I'm think of buying an action this year an getting a stock made. Well that's the plan this year. and to sell a few rifles to pay for all this....

    I was looking at the raw but heard that the older ones are better than the newer one. Not sure if that true.

    These are the three that I'm using at the moment. Top to bottom. Sporter class, LV class, HV class.

    Hi paul it's a anschutz 2002. And the plate at the front is made by Sinclair benchrest forend rail adaptor. That what it will be under on Google.

    Thanks Paul
    I will have a look I could do with one for my 9015 black air. It looks a bit lower profile than the BR wedges above.

    Cheers
    Paul
