Anyone gearing up for their next build, and if so...
what are you building?
I've started gathering parts for my next build. I am planning on a .32 caliber squirrel rifle. I decided on a Rice straight octagon barrel in 13/16ths width. Got a nice Xmas bonus from work and that went to the barrel. I'm going to do this gun up in brass so ordered the thimbles, and nose cap. Also placed an order for a Davis No.4 double set trigger (another gift card helped buy that one). Still need to buy the butt plate, trigger guard, stock, lock, and various other small odds and ends. I have some leftover bolts and screws from my last build so that will help offset costs. I have a spare touch hole liner so no need buying that. I will make the side plate and toe plate myself, same as I did on my last build. No need spending money on that kinda stuff. Those two items are easy to make from sheet steel or in this case brass that I can buy from Lowes. Planning on a Left handed Verner style stock from Pecatonica river, and am going to buy the Siler lock kit from TOTW as soon as I get some more dough. The lock kit will save me about $50, and assembling a lock doesn't look difficult. A few holes to drill and tap, then assemble and tune.
Being laid up at home with a medical issue, it helps pass the time looking on the net for gun parts.
