Transformations from factory guns

Kudos to Zee, for this idea.
Post pictures of the finished customized/modded guns that started off in a factory format.
I don't necessarily need the picture of the stock gun (that would be fine though), but am looking for pictures of the upgraded/customized guns, with a description of what was done.
Gotta find the other one.
Here it is.
I may have one more.
Last one I think.
Every thing else is just grip pannels, adapters, etc..
I have a bone stock Rem 700 mnt gun. Big box counter guy mounted the scope for me. I sighted in for the cheapest ammo on the shelf. Bought upteen boxes of the stuff. Settled for mediocre, took a couple three cow elk, never looked back. I may restock it some day. Im a hard person to pigeon hole. Peculiar and enigmatic.
Has an old Redfield 3×9 Tracker in a Luepold base. Strange thing, the windage turret is one marked for elevation. Factory mistake. I never had it fixed. I keep a note inside the cap. Real cheap factory plastic stock. Solid rifle. Could use a better one. Someday. Better glass too eventually.
XP-100 221 Fireball - custom chassis, 16" barrel.
JKP you've posted that one before. Its the only one I've seen like it. Im sure those actions are coveated for many custom creations, but that's unique unto itself.
Middle gun facing left was a factory S&W Model 629-1 in pristine condition when I bought it.
Later transformed into a 4” Slim barreled “Mountain Gun” by our own Calebib.
This gun started life as a gently scarred Model 27-2 and was transformed by our own Justsomedude into a tackdriving slim-barreled old school .44 Mag.
I'm not familiar with the Performance Center pistols. They must be real good to invest modifications and stand up to competition usage.

Shoots great for its size - 0.5" groups at 100 yards. Very handy rifle.
