Just picked up a used stock for $100

Planning to drop in a Savage MKII F action/barrel into this.  Will have to fabricate an aluminum chassis to house the Savage and a trigger linkage.

Finally got the stock in.

I plan to paint everything black when I'm done with this.

Just doing some brainstorming, measurements and some test fitting with different handguards.

I'll try to see if I can use an aluminum channel bar to help bed the action.  If this doesn't work, then its just epoxy putty to bed around the action/barrel.  Then use JB Weld to glue that to the left receiver

I'll figure out the trigger linkage later on when I'm done bedding and fabricating the upper receiver/handguard area

The dremeling part is the easiest that can be done in 15-20 minutes.  Just the rear section needs to be dremeled off to make room for the action to drop in.

I also have to dremel around the bolt handle

I do have to buy extra metric screws and larger retaining pins since it didnt come with it.

I'll either have to buy the DTA metal cheek rest or I'll fabricate my own metal cheek rest

I was thinking I can drill a large hole in the buttpads to move the action back and line up the Savage magazine to the DTA magwell.  So when I rack the bolt back, it goes inside the buttpads.  I think I'll try that first since its hidden anyways.

The red outline is the plastic that I have to dremel off to allow the action to sit flush

Action just laying inside. I havent done any cutting yet.

Test fitting with the action/barrel.  The magazine does not line up with the DTA magwell.

Here's a test fit of a SCAR CASV metal handguard

Added a AR15 CASV quad rail just to see how it would look.  M1A bipod

Switched to an AFG

Cleaner look with just the CASV quad rail. I'd have to make an aluminum block to fill that gap

I think I'll stick with this version.

Finished the dremel work inside.  Will sand down the edges smooth.

Was able to move the action back a bit more to make the magazine line up with the DTA magwell

Next, drilling into the buttpad to make sure the bolt can be racked.

I need to cut some metal and bend it with a brake press and epoxy glue it to the left stock inside on top of the action to protect my face

Then bedding the action with epoxy putty.

Pretty cool, I have a MkII (non accutrigger) that I've thought about doing something similar.

Picked up a 6061 aluminum bar.

Need to cut this down to size.  

Also bought a 12 inch picatinny rail that I will drill and tap

I'll be using an angle grinder to shave off the metal and a metal filer and sander to smooth it out.
