In deference to @Nibbs, here is a thread for sporters with that little bit of oddness. Not necessarily kitchen table butcher jobs, but something a little odd or nice.

Heres my Gewehr 98 Haenel Mauser. The original straight grip stock has a pistol grip grafted on. Even has a 1922 Springfield buttplate fit...

Kind of a nice old school sporter...

Here’s two more, just because. The one on the left is a Swedish 6.5 in a mannlicher stock with a butter knife bolt handle.

The one on the right is a 98 Krag with a Lyman 34 rear sight and ramp front sight. The Bishop stock has had the plastic and white line spacers removed. Now has an ebony tip, steel grip cap, and red pachmayr recoil pad...

Dragged from the other thread...
1936 91/30 hex in a Bishop stock. Aftermarket sights front and rear and a bent bolt. Cheap back-o-the-rack show find.

Took it out yesterday and was constantly kicking a coffee can around at about 40 yards so it probably is capable of shooting better than me.
