I just finished a restock-refinish project for a buddy of mine. My buddy lost his right eye in a fishing accident. He has been trying to learn to shoot left handed for a while and just could not make the adjustment. He had thought that a person could make a stock with enough bend to shoot from the right shoulder and look down the action with the left eye. He asked what I thought, and I said that I was wanting to try a stock project. I told him that I would do it all for a few fishing trips for sturgeon in the Umpqua river. The gun he had was a Remington 700 BDL in 7mm magnum. When I picked up the gun, I saw that it was one of the older ones with the stainless barrel that was factory blued. I bead blasted the barrel, media blasted the action/bolt/bottom metal, and dura coated them in Desert Warrior. I am not a gunsmith and do not claim to be one. I just like to try new things. This it what I came up with. I hope it serves him well.
