Hand Tool 2k RF Stock Class Project

Well, I've decided the last cocker I need to build (ha, right) will be a phantom feeded stock class cocker, because why not? The plan is also to hand sand/dremel/ruin the body to give it that 'rat' look, because I enjoy wasting my time.

It will also be running on regged 12 grams, so not true stock class, but whatever. First, I started with a little something I snagged here:


It has great parts, fatty palmers reg, ccm kit, dye slider, cp on/off. I think the on/off and fatty will end up on another project, but we shall see how this goes. Plan is to pull the feedneck and drill it for a phantom feed. It also came with these

Which appears to be most of a madman kit, which should allow me to spring for 12 grams. It also came with this beast

Which may really help with the rat build look. Upon breaking down the body, I found some serious gems inside



And this grooved hammer I don't recognize


Which all seem way to nice for a rat build, but they may find a home in my sleeper


Anyway, next step beside work on the body is to get this old stock drilled to for a cocker and asa so I can attach the bucket changer and dye frame


Updates to follow when I get the dremel going...

Did you end up drilling or epoxying the feed onto the bodies?

Well, I got out the dremel and some titanium carbide bits and did a few things...


I mostly removed the WGP oval and the serial number, along with some weight milling. I actually did more, but forgot to take pictues. I also have her some cuts along the top rail, like the gator quality to. May play up with that swamp/voodoo vibe and call her Hex. Time will tell. Plan on taking some more weight off and rough up the body a bit more. May carve the name into the side as well before I drill it for the stick feed.

I also picked up some unfinished wood grips that will likely get some wood burning/carving to pull it together.

Also manged to find a use for that reg...


She may be ugly, but she works and will be a loaner.

Did a bit more slimming of the body and roughed up the surfaces. Added some teeth near the barrel and finally named the old girl. Started sanding her with 220, will continue to knock it down a bit, don't want it too smooth.

Going to drill+tap the stock feed next.

Decided to dremel some continuation between the body and the back block.

I think it gives it that real gator look.

Waiting on a beat up old Kapp frame from bartman which will see some dremel work on the trigger guard and palm side.

Also added a little detail to the vasa.
