So met with Nate McKenzie, ran over the David Keck's. It's gonna be an Andrew Verner style Bucks county, with a 54. Cal c weight 44" rice barrel. I said the heck with it and got Dave's best stock, super tight even curl full length, to give a reference it's was a lot more than the barrel! So just some incise no inlays or wire, let the wood stand out for itself. Single trigger , brass hardware, a pivoting wooden patch box, can't lose it, and a copy from an actual verner! Hopefully August I'll be able to send smoke!

That sounds sweet ! The Bucks, in my opinion, is one of the nicest styles of longrifle, and not too many people choose it. Nate builds a really nice Bucks County rifle, and he often makes the lock screws an irredesent blue. ( He is a metal Master ) I may have to sneak over there in a couple months to see your gun in progress.

Since I lived in Bucks County for 30+ years, I really like that style of rifle. I always wanted to copy the John Schuler rifle in the Mercer Museum. But a "real" Bucks rifle has a side-opening patchbox with the release being the front of the toeplate. No visible release!

Nice wood. I'm in Dave's shop every other week. He must have hidden that blank from me.
