It looks great. Will you paint it at all? Some came will look really good too. Welcome to the boyeds stock club. We should have a badge for them. Just saying.
That's a good idea on the badge. They do take a little fitting on a Mosin. Especially wartime productions.
I finished out the bedding on the recoil lug and then did the tang pillar and then finished it out. I use 5 minute JBWeld. That way in about 10 minutes I can pull it apart, check for voids, add more if I need to, and everything is set enough to not move on me. A pretty job it is not but it should be functional. I removed stock material around the recoil lug, particularly behind it so I could get enough epoxy around it to hopefully have more than enough strength. It's my first pillar bedding job so I was a bit skittish. Mostly with the timney trigger cut. Trying not to get either the pillar or the trigger assembly area full. But it came out nicely. 30 seconds of trimming with a razor and it dropped right in nice and tight.
I am seriously debating reprinting all the metal but I can't decide. I almost thought about doing like a matte stainless steel. Or I may just apply a new coat of the color on it. Which is Ruger matte gray. As for the stock I think I am going to paint it the Ruger Matte gray as a base coat and then use Black and Tan on top of it to look like this.
