Beeman R9 (Airgun) Stock

It seems as though I am on an airgun kick again.  Yes, that is true.  In fact, I have recently purchased a new airgun... No, make that TWO new airguns!  The one is ducumented here on the posts prior to this one on the pistol grips.  It's is a Crosman 2240 CO2 pistol.  The 2nd one still has not arrived in my hot little hands yet but, I will save that one for another post. 

This is about a stock that I started about 2-3 years ago for one of my best friends that is an airgunner.  This is for his Beeman R9 in .177 cal.  This project has taken so long, like all of my projects, because I am easily distracted and I lose steam quickly.  If I could only work faster, I may be able to keep up with my project ideas.  Not really! ha ha. 

The stock has been inletted already and the action drops right in.  The profile has been roughed out and now I am working of the shaping of the stock.  This has all been done by hand.  When I say hand, I mean, with no duplicators.  I actually used a router and a drill press to do the inletting and other various tools to cut and shape the outside.  Now I am down to true hand work using chisels, files and sandpaper shaping and sanding trying to get what is in my mind on to the piece of black walnut used for the stock.  This is the first full length riflestock that I have attempted.  I have this one and one other (R9 stock) for myself.
