While the guys on the "big" crossbow boards are in a lather over the new crossbows, I'm working on the Burky RDT frankenbow. Had some tuning issues to work out, and I think that's done now. The stock is a 3/4" walnut core, with nice grain walnut pieces glued to it. It's unfinished now, so you can't really see how nice the grain is. I will straighten out some dips and humps, then glass bed and finish sand it. Mat to satin finish, likely urethane, and a bit of checkering. It will be unique and I'm not worried about it getting dinged up a bit. LOP of the stock is 14", but overall length is only 30 1/4". Axle to axle is 13 13/16 uncocked, 9 3/16" cocked. Weighs a little under 8# when I had the TP Rangemaster on it. So balanced, I wouldn't want it any lighter. The target pic is 40 yds with a Ramcat. My hands get cold really fast, and they were stinging most of the time I was at the range, so I'm not going to shoot again for a while, but happy where things are at.
