Hammer gun build

Have been working on this hammer gun build since March. I did not take any pics when it was dropped off but here is a pic of the old stock so you can get a idea of what it looked like. In a word it was trashed and held together with tape and nails.



A new stock was made and the splinter fore end was salvaged. Both were finished to match and checkered 18 LPI with fleur de lis pattern. The receiver looked like some one had hammered nails with it. It was stripped, cleaned and reblued with a few bad screws made and replaced. The barrel was about the only thing still good on the gun and besides a small dent cleaned up good.

This gun was the customer's grandfather's and he wanted the picture that was on his grave stone of the family farm taken in the 1940s carved into the stock. I talked him into the picture being scrimshawed on cow horn and set into the but stock.

Here is the end result and along with some compensation I got a very large smile when he picked it up which made my time and trouble worth it. Any of you shotgun gurus want to venture a guess as to what the gun maker is?





Oh, and just for John S. that likes to put 20+ coats of Tru-Oil on his stocks. This one is 6 coats of Tru-Oil and 2 coats of satin poly.

Friends don't make promises they can't keep.

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