One more new build

Hi all, I hope you can stand just one more build thread. Now that grass cutting season is over and the nights are longer I am going to restart a project I picked up this spring in TN.
A .54 cal smoothie in the early Dickert style. 42 straight barrel, L&R lock
I picked up the stock at Tips in March to go with a Rice barrel I had made after the 2018 Lewisburg show so I guess you can say I am taking my time

I will post pics along the way so you can observe a novice at work.
Here is the inspiration piece

The stock I picked has some nice figure, the lock and barrel are in place. Underlugs are done and the front sight dove tail is cut. It is ready for pins and a touchhole next.

Starting back into the project after hunting season and holidays are finished. Took a couple nights this week to get reacquainted with the gun and make sure I am headed where I want this to go. Guess what, I am changing the trigger guard to better fit a single trigger, the one I bought was more for a double set. I may also change the buttplate - but need to think about this more first. Will move on to other items, fit the trigger in tonight so at last there is movement.
Want to get some more inspiration in Lewisburg next week - that always gets the juices flowing.

There is always something to work on with these builds, very simple to complex, depends on the mood!

After much discussion in Lewisburg and comparing originals to the copy, the trigger guard on the original is so very close to the repro I am calling it good.
I have the trigger and guard roughed in but not secured until I get the fit and cleanup completed.
