I'm behind about ... 13 acquired guns that haven't been posted. but here's 3. 

Win m70 in 6mm TCU. It came on one of those awful hogue stocks,  but I had a SA Lightweight stock i bought a few years ago on ebay.  Lightweight vs Featherweight = same barrel channel but no schnaebel.  The action dropped in for a perfect fit.  Waiting on dies to arrive,  still looking at load data.  I need to check the twist rate,  but either way this is the cool little deer/ antelope gun I've been wanting for a while.  

Next up is a Winchester 54. Wanted one of these for a while,  cane out of the same auction as the 6mm. Its been buggered up quite a bit, so no need to keep things original.  As much as I want to keep it as a 270 WCF (1927, the model and cartridge were only 2 years old!) I also have 2 barrels that would screw in without issue,  a shilen 30-06 #1 and an octagon 30-06. May need a new stock,  I'll see what i can massage out of it.  

lastly,  a gorgeous,  partially finished small ring kar 98 with a jc Higgins 30-06 barrel screwed in.  The wood is amazing,  steel still needs to be blued. My boss bought this at the Colorado Collectors Show we went to a few weeks back.  Out of the 50 odd guns I bought, this is the only one i knew i was taking home no matter what.  This will stay a 30-06
