Default Some tinkering idea's

The tinkerer that i am, ive been thinking about adding some vent ports on my Optima's forearm. I plan on getting the stock dipped hopefully this summer in Burlwood pattern and i thought the Vents would look pretty cool and maybe even help cool it down a bit faster. I honestly think if i get the stock dipped in burl, it will end up being strictly a shooting range gun and i'll just get another optima for hunting LOL.

I dont know, what do you guys think about the ports? Real function or just another bore butter poop product?

i think they do serve a purpose on rifles but for most folks probably not needed on a ml. you on the other hand go to shoot and shoot you do so it would probably help you. hard to picture what i would look like after dipping

It looks good, I just wonder if you would get that much valuable range cooling time on a ml by adding small vents compared to the rest of the barrel's surface for heat discipation(spell). Only another expirment will tell.

Its always worth a shot at seeing. If nothing helps, i got some holes in the fore end lol. We'll see though, i have some other patterns in my mind that i need help transferring onto paper and then onto the duct tape i use to get an ideer.

You need to move up into a cooler part of Colorado.

Barrel heat is never a problem for me.

Or just shoot in the winter. I did have this idea about liquid cooling using the old log splitter's hydralic pump.
