Great Plains Rifle - 50cal Flinter!
« on: September 30, 2017, 06:18:45 PM »
I had a great time building the .50 GPR a couple months ago.  Really itchin to do another build. 
A few weeks back I did a day at the range with this brandy new rifle and found that it'll shoot better than I can.



The stock was finished with at least 7 thinly wiped coats of Birchwood Tru-Oil burnished between coats.



I finished the barrel with a cold blue and then burnished it 'till it took on a nice washed-out patina.  I will do this same process with my next rifle.



Looking to get $435 TYD, shipped in original packaging, insured.
