The "Jenny Lee" project

I got some new additions in this weekend for the girl. Spent the night shimming and installing all of the new toys. Does anybody have a good link on adjusting the Schuster? I'm actually fairly pleased with the stock from FA, I chose the hand select option and I think the grain is going to look great in a cherry stain from Laurel Mountain Forge. Has any Ody used one of their gun finishing kits before? I've been going to every corner of the net for opinions on finishing, and what oil is best.

I was looking for something like that, thank you. Since I knew going into this project the bottom voltor rail doesn't fit without some mods, but not sure if I'm going to do it. Some thing I learned: the sage mount that replaces the stripper clip does not line up with the voltor rail. The sage is approx 5mm shorter than the forward rail. It's a bitch to press into the mounting slot, and I'm not impressed to 60 bucks. But lesson learned and I'll work around it.

The Sage mount was designed to line up with the Sage EBR stock.

The Vltor cheese grater stuff isn't all it's cracked up to be.

The Schuster adjustable plug is good if you plan on using a suppressor. If not, get the standard non-adjustable version for using full power match loads.

That is a really nice stock. You can put a few dabs of water inside the barrel channel to get an idea of what it will look like oiled. If you like what you see, just use Teak Oil on the whole stock. I get the feeling it is too nice to stain.

I agree with Kurt, I don't think I would stain it.

Thanks for the input guys. I appreciate the help, I like the red tint on some rifles. Ultimately I will get some scrap walnut and test both ways to determine my taste. Also having some other work done to the stock for a little one off type features. If I had k own that the sage wouldn't have lined up with Vltor then I obviously wouldn't have ordered it and am more than likely going to be donating it or putting it up on the PX. Had I known of certain difficulties about mounting then I might have gone a different route, but for the price I got the rifle for it was a deal to good to pass on.
I'm more than likely not keeping the bottom part of the rail, but the upper serves its purpose, abiet the gen1 design has its limits.

Well got all the goodies installed. Hopefully the hearing protection act will pass and the age of suppressors will begin. I took Kurt and WA's advice and decided to go with a medium Danish oil. Did 5 coats spread over 2 hours and the 6th coat was hand rubbed using 600 grit. Gonna give it 36-48hrs and Paste wax it up. Got the stock routered out so the receive and rail system fit nicely with a little wiggle room. Hopefully I'll have completed the project by next Sunday. I decided to cut my losses on the sage mount and glass and have decided to go with a primary arms 5x prism or the Burris 3x. We will see how she turns out. The grain really came alive after applying the oil. No feet pics this time just in case there are some crazy foot fetish people out there
