Default Commemorative 2020 rifle Trumpisher.

Just starting work on my new Trumpisher. This rifle will utilize my last SA/Bula receiver. It will have a USGI SA bolt, trigger group, op rod and late USGI SA rear sights, an LRB/ Criterion 18.5 1/10 parked barrel, USMC unitized gas cylinder with LRB brake on the end. Stock will be SA Walnut presentation grade from Fred's.

Barrel and a few other small parts showed up today. Stock is scheduled for delivery tomorrow.
Today was an outside day. Finished cleaning up the garden and dumping 30 bags of composted cow manure on it. Next, probably in the morning will fire up the roto-tiller and get ready for planting. Managed to spin on and index the new barrel before quitting time.

Got a SA walnut presentation grade stock in from Fred's yesterday. A little scrubbing with linseed oil and I think it might just work out.





Stamp is light, but it's still there.

How long did it take to get the stock? I ordered from Fred's a few weeks ago, interested in lead time. I spoke to him on the phone and was told it may take a while, so I'm not worried, just interested.

Call him a few times a week until he ships

Just kidding, and don't do that. Just don't.

It's been a few years since I ordered from him but if I recall is was a few weeks.
In my experiences every stock I received from him was well worth the wait, and seemed to me to be from the grade above what I had ordered.

Well, I ordered it and it shipped the same day. Took UPS 3 days to get it here.

Had my friend do up a nice reconditioned HRA op rod for the Trumpisher.
