Stumbled on a new project
Last week I ran across a very nice precarved Lehigh style stock in a local gunshop. Picked it up at a real good price so now have another project. Lehigh is not my preferred style but could not pass it up for the price. Ramrod hole is drilled for a small rod for basically a 32 or 36 cal. I may drill it out for a larger rod (I have the drill bit) and make it in 45. Figure it will be easier to sell in 45. Just a thought.Two other builds in the works that I want done 1st so have time to decide on that.
It is nice wood if dirty from sitting around for a while, so whatever caliber, I just plan on making it a basic hunter/shooter. No patchbox or inlays. I also need to figure out what lock it is inletted for. Looks like a Pecatonica stock and their kit lists a Durrs Egg, but looks closer to a large Siler. Have to take it to Dixons or Ft Chambers as see what they think and maybe try a fit
