winter project

its time to get to work now that deer hunting season is over.


early Lancaster, 42" x 13/16" .40 cal. rice barrel, Siler lock, Davis double set triggers and CM stock. hardware will be brass. wood patch box and some carving. This is for some one else, but I may have to do a .40 for myself

Is that a kit gun? I still want to get a northwest trade gun kit from Track. Or somewhere else, I don't really care. Just worried about the amount of time involved and whether or not I'll have the time to finish it. I wanna chase some cottontails with a flint shotgun!

A bad day hunting rabbits beats a good day of anything else!

no not a kit. I got the stock, barrel, breech plug, under lugs, tang screw and lock from Log Cabin, the triggers I had and I have a trigger guard here some where along with lock screws pins ect.. the rest I will order from Log Cabin or TOTW. Typically I have found that LC has a little nicer wood than TOTW.

Didn't take you long to break that out. You must have been itching to get started. You going to post pics as you get on? I know that's a lot of extra headache.

yes, I thought it was pretty nice too! I think LC's curl is nicer for the grade and the stocks are a little less bulky which saves a lot of time slimming them down.

Ha ha, that's one of 2 I need to get done this winter Pics?? Honestly, I wasn't going to, I have already done 2 on here and I am thinking maybe people don't want to be bored with it. I am really hoping some others will jump in and fill that void

Does LC offer dovetail service on their barrels? That's the one thing that spooks me about building one.
