Even nicer, you slimmed the barrel wood down. I bet it holds and swings nicely.
Can't wait to hear how it shoots. :thumb:

Dang it Matt! My 20 ga trade gun project is once again leaning towards a matchlock fishtail buck and ball gun. You must quit showing such nice work and finished guns to weak willed people such as myself. I can only take so much...

HAVE YOU COMPLETED MY LOCK YET? What kind of mesquite wood is that? And look at that tail on the bar! If you keep this up, everybody on the Forum is going to want one and nobody will get any work done once they find out how fun these things are; wives will refuse to cook dinner, the children will not get educated at home during this crisis and the local game wardens will be driven to drinking! -Now let me see if I can get this danged percussion patent breech out and replace it with a proper breech plug and lidded pan!
