Nice job! What caliber and barrel length? I'm getting ready to order me a Southern mountain rifle kit.

You should be proud. Are you planning on doing another build after this one? If so, in order to grow as a builder, you might think about stepping up the level of tasks you need to perform, like going to a parts set, like Track sells. And adding things you didn't do this time, like making a few parts such as a muzzle cap, metal inlays, or thimbles. Pretty soon you'll be ready to build from a blank.

I really enjoyed this build and did kind of wish it was a little more of a challenge. I’m going to shoot this and have fun for a while before I dive into another build but I think I may do a Track build next winter.

You have started the way a great many have in most things, moving from the simple to the complex.

I fully understand wanting to take a breather from building. You want to spend some time playing with your new creation, not just working on another one.
