    Did the grip cap today. I used an old buffalo boss grip cap as a template. The grip cap is made from Lead wood . I have a lot of African Leadwood /Hardekool hout available.

    I draw the templet form onto a piece of Leadwood and glued it to the grip cap surface of the rifle stock..

    This grip cap is not preformed like all the extra grip caps I already made for use in building of rifle stocks.

    This oversize piece of Leadwood grip cap will be worked down to the precise form and measurements of the rifle stock`s grip cap form.

    Members, thank you kindly, it is a long process, especially the wood part of the gun making process. It would be easier to just buy a rifle stock or a complete rifle.
    I am working towards a rifle stock that fit me and will be a joy to shoot with..there are no rules building a rifle stock only measurements..
