Very nice looking. Interested to hear the details of your finishing process and see the results. Hopefully it doesn't take you another 10 years for that.
After making my first gun this year I don't think I'll ever put a nosecap on. Except, I saw a really cool looking poured pewter "cap". It was skeletonized with a rib down the bottom with perpendicular ribs up each side.
Remember, shoot straight and shoot often.
Good... Bad... I'm the guy with the gun.
