    It is a Turkish Walnut, picked it for the density,grain and darkness of the wood.

    Nice to see the work is finally getting started! I'm pretty sure it will come out looking awesome with all the plans you have for it! Have you decided on what engraving you want on it yet?

    @Timt I have kind of decided on the engraving to be done, just a problem finding a person one can trust and that does not have a 2 year lead time!

    The discussion was quite a while ago, but I'd be interested in the result. :)

    Still in progress, hand carved stock is taking some time and the GS is a perfectionist He is also extremely busy.

    Stopped by the Gunsmith today to drop off more work and check on the status of my 9,3. Getting there now and starting to look like a rifle. Amazing how much better a custom built to fit stock feels on a rifle. Couple more months and she will be at home

    I really want to see this one updated. That looks like it will be a very proper 9.3x62 ready for safari
