Turkey Beck complete!!

So I started this project in February. If you'd like to see its progress and how it started, see my other post. I had it in shooting condition in April...right before then, I met a girl and she occupied a lot of my free time...so, the detail work was slow going.

Barrel is a 38" Colerain Turkey choke
Lock is a Chamber's Deluxe Siler
Stock is curly maple precarved by Mark Wheland. Barrel channel, ramrod hole and lock mortise were done.






























There was some interest in the first post so figured I'd show the completed gun. My first longrifle stocking project and first time doing any carving. Definitely learned a lot.

You have something to be proud of there. Been following along on the build and enjoyed how you brought us along each step of the way. That is a fantastic looking longrifle!

Very nice work.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

The rifle is complete. The project will be complete when you blow the waddles off of a turkey this fall or next spring. Great looking rifle, Mauser. Been following the build and we sure appreciate you taking us along for the ride.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Very nice job, great looking gun, I like the finish on the barrel and stock.

you have plenty of time to warm up on crows and groundhogs before fall turkey

Very nice.

Remember, shoot straight and shoot often.
Good... Bad... I'm the guy with the gun.
