Nate's gone now.  So treasure it.  He was a fine gunbuilder.  He was at a lot of the Faires including Dixons, Lewisburg, Frederick, etc.  I always admired his stuff.  How did u come by it?  Congrats again.  Specs are perfect.  Im jealous.

That"s a really good 50yd target and needless to say a reliable squirrel killer if they will hold still for you and deer will not survive the
