  1. I hate to do this to y'all, but the migration went well, then I broke THR by trying to recompile software. Rather than leave THR down for 12+ hours as I try to fix this, I just reverted back to the old server.

    This means data entered on THR tonight is gone. I'm sorry. It's the best I can do right now though.

    I'm going to get some sleep and try this another way tomorrow.

    Again, I'm sorry for the loss of data and resulting confusion.

    Picked up a used 853 from the CMP. Cleaned and lubed it up,then decided to stain and refinish the stock. After sighting it in [basement-approx 28ft],it's really accurate.

    Got one from CMP as well. Great shooting, extremely accurate at 10 M. The stock was rough so I decided to refinish it. At first I wanted to do a hydro dip but all my attempts where awful so I just decided to go with a simple stain finish and added a beech stock extender I made.
    Stocks are cheap so I may order another for future Frankenstein experiments. 20180418_093958.jpg

    I got mine from CMP with the M/C style 753 stock but found that for the way I shoot the sporter style 853 stock was the better choice. Found them at Numrich for $28 delivered. The wood on it was better than what came on my CMP gun but that's just the luck of the draw.

    That's a good price. I may go ahead and order one.
