    Given this is a clone in every way the holes don't bother me. I will plug them and call it good.

    Now I am on the hunt for wood.

    Was there a preference between which colour glue laminate stock was used? I have a lead on a nice red glue built by Ce and need confirmation this is correct for my repro?

    Thanks guys and lets see more sniper pics!

    There was not color preference on the stocks. They used white and red glue as well as Walnut and a little Elm. The hand guard should match in color. A JPS stock is a little different than an MO, so you may want a MO? Good luck. Hope this helps.

    O.k. made a little progress on the build and am looking for some info before my next step.

    Does anyone know what angle the turret mounting screws are drill at?

    I did a rough calibration and figure about 48.
    If anyone can confirm or correct me I would greatly appreciate it!
