Last week I recieved a G1 buttstock from Moses and it is a very fine piece, beautiful grain, perfect fit and very clean lines. I just wanted to show my satisfaction and appreciation for an excellent job, Thanks Moses!!!
Now I just need a new pistol grip and she'll be too pretty to shoot. (Yeah right):)

I got my wood from TAPCO and that is some beautiful furniture.
Bill hand picked the kit for me last week and sent me a premium pistol grip and butstock. no cracks no holes and no dings.
the set looked almost as nice as the set on the G-1 on the cover of the newest catalog. all I need is to finish putting on the poly and I am done.

Hey Vegeta, You mean on the cover of FAC? I can't remember if it was Tapco or FAC, but that is a sweet looking G1 Is it not?

yup thats the one!

I wonder if the final clear on that wood was sprayed or hand applied though?
judging by the high gloss I would say sprayed. mine is all hand rubbed stain and my poly coats are being rubbed on with a lint free rag. so far I have about 6 coats on it and may do the last coat with a spayer to get the even gloss finish.
that rifle sure does look good though. I hope my rifle looks that nice when its finished. Bill was saying they wanted to photograph it for a future catalog cover when its finished so I want it to look as good so I don't embarass myself nation-wide hehe.
