Just wanted to say thanks to Mike for taking the time to post all that wonderful information and pictures on building a gun.
Thought I would start a new thread rather than adding to the information threads.
Great job! Your efforts are appreciatted!

I really appreciate it too..some jerk from the cable company wiped out my windows program a while back and I lost 5yrs worth of pictures and building info and everything else. He was supposed to be fixing my internet connection. Anyway thanks again Mike I got all you've posted saved and will use it many times.

Looks like I posted in the wrong forum. I hope one of the moderators will be kind enough to move.

Well, thanks guys. I'll be finishing up that tutorial in the next couple days. I have plans to do several more. Stock lay out, engraving, carving, etc. in more detail in the future.

I just want to add that I also appreciate your work. I have tinkered for 30 years with these things, I really like seeing how a professional does it.

Mike: I join in congratulating you for this fine set of photos and descriptions. It is truly a tutorial, and anyone would be nuts not to review them before working on a gun, no matter how much experience he has! I was fascinated how you resolved some problems I have run into. You solved problems and showed us how to do things I still have not really thought too much about. Thanks again for a fine education.I am sure you will inspire many people to either build those guns that are laying around as parts, or even consider to take up gun building as both a hobby, or part-time career.

Mike my only complaint about your tutorial is that you din't start it back in October when I started building my first gun. Other than that I have really appreciated and enjoyed your efforts.
