I posted this over on the French and Indian War Forum but I hope its ok here as well for those that don't frequent that one. I posted a question back in 2005 on possibly purchasing the Mark Silver Virginia kit by Chambers. Well I did. Here is some of the story and pics. Back in 2005 john4645 was my original handle on the forum, I just recently got back into the sport full on. I found it when I was looking for some information on Pipe Hawks. Well I would like to update you all. I did purchase the Chambers Virginia shortly after and started to work on it. I cant' remember exactly how far I got but It then sat in my closet for the next 17 years. I moved to Michigan for 5 years in 2013 and then back to Wisconsin in 2018. Last winter I decided to get it completed. Since the time I bought it I stopped working on firearms and building guns and for the last 17 years have been hunting with a Hawken that I built. So I called all the builders that Chambers had on their list and no one had the time to put it together but one, And he did, and he did a fine job. Shoots like a tack driver and it was worth the wait. I got it in May and shot it this summer and hunted with it but did not kill anything.
