got it glued and clamped. tomorrow i am going to dig out some raw hide, and go full mountain man on that english/italian gun!
going to wet wrap it and let it shrink. then i will start looking for a new piece of wood. like i needed another project
I saw one of the old CVA Kentucky’s cut down into a ‘blanket gun’. Had a thin leather faux repair on the front end to hide the stock/fore-end joint and a brass sheet/copper wire wrap ‘repair’ on the wrist. A few feathers, beads, and brass tacks completed the deal. I thought it neat as hell & looked for a ragged out for a while to make one for myself. May still try it one day if one comes along cheap enough.
