    My Stainless Blue Octopus

    Remington 597, stainless 20" regular barrel
    Boyds SS Evolution stock in "Sky"
    Vortex Crossfire II 6-18x44 AO V-Plex

    Vaguely reminds me of

    After a grueling 4 minutes, I managed to swap stocks as well as swap over the stainless sling studs. The sides of the stock are basically inverted colors of each other, where there's blue on one side, the other side has white. Can't really complain about the quality of the stock for the price, I'll eventually throw some polyurethane on it after I shoot it a bit. Next plans are to improve the trigger, there's a lot of room for improvement there. I chose the blue coloration because I'm typically not one to spend money on something to make it looks plain. I'm not hunting with this thing, I don't need it to be some faux shades of camo.

    That is an interesting look. Your second picture reminds me I have not gone down to the rock wall for a while looking for octopus. Good eating.

    The 2nd amendment is not about hunting or shooting sports, it is about the citizens of this country having the means to protect themselves and the states from the tyranny, oppression, and misery of an over powering government. Modern rifles are a means for the citizens to stand up to an over powering government.

    My now-ex-gf who was a vegetarian loved octopus when I took her to Hawaii. Very good eatins. Just don't touch the ultra venomous blue ringed octopus if you find one.

    Guilty as charged, for looking badass

    My philosophy, it ain't a solid piece of wood, why pretend. Embrace the method and show it off.

    Also no point in thinking the stainless itself isn't already flashy.

    I considered the purple but it just didn't 'pop' as much as the blue.
