Not trying to be mean, but maybe showing off a little.

I'm glad you guys liked the rifles, still have three or four more to build then maybe I'm finished.

Just 3 or 4 more huh? lol. ya know the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem. I mean, there are worse problems to have though.

I won't ask which is your favorite, but could tell me about what you used for the stock finishes?

Dennis,

All are USGI stocks and all were finished in Teak Oil. Wes(M1Army) and Wade(Doug Carlton) finished two of them using Starbright Teak oil, the other three I finished using Watco Teal oil.

Wes finished the one in front with the scope and Wade finished the only Birch stock pictured.

I tried to get as close to an all one manufacturer as possible. The two S.A. builds(not to be confused with SAI.) and the one Winchester are very close to being 100%, the TRW build used 8 out of the 11 parts made by TRW...as close as I could get. All parts used are USGI originals.

I will try to take a few more for those who asked for more pics.

Ren

Ren- What is the finish on the XM21 receiver? I can't tell from the photo, did you use the same finish on the barrel?

Cheers

The receiver is in the white, I just hand tightened the barrel on the receiver. The XM21 is on deck waiting to be built.
