    Black walnuts

    Little off subject. We have 9 black walnut trees in my yard and every year the squirrels get the nuts because I never do anything with them. I have tread your can use them for dye, oil and even baking. Does anybody process the black walnuts or are they more trouble then they are worth?

    Well mechanically it is good. Fit and finish from past repairs will be a project. Believe it was been shortened at some point since the butt plate is bigger then the stock. Cracks concern me. Maybe I could get some glue to soak into them.
