Color me jealous! That’s a beauty already, I can only imagine how she’s going to look when you’re done.

Al,

I'll go out on a limb and say the talent evidenced in this build is the real beauty, course, when one ain't got it, it's ez to recognize it in others! :)

Trigger guard is in.



The lugs on this didn't fall where they needed to be for this to work for me. So I cut them all off and made one where I needed it to be by drilling a hole in the guard and shaping one of the cut off lugs in a wedge then hammered it in and soldered it.

Made the toe plate today out of an old hand saw blade. Still have a little file work to do on one side and countersink a screw a little deeper, but its done!

Got the stock stained and the first coat of wood sealer. Going to take a break for a few weeks. I have a bear hunt and bow class in Maine to get ready for and a ton of bow stave orders to ship this week.

Ill post the finished gun in a few weeks.

They say confession is good for the soul...so I confess I wasn't sure about the "toe piece" so googled it and learned a good bit..

Wished I could have viewed a profile to see how you dovetailed it into the butt cap...

Alas, that wood looks great!

You going to leave it in the white?

Good luck on the bear hunt and filling your orders!
