So I had this idea to build a working ML rifle the cheapest way possible. Got a 24-inch section of new Green Mountain .36 barrel for $40, got a Dixie percussion lock for $70, old CVA trigger guard for $15. Now get this part - found that local lumberyard has a stack of 3/4-inch maple, hard as a rock, some with uniform curl. Can get a 9 in x 84 inch x 3/4 plank for $28. I could laminate two sides together to get a full-thickness blank. I had a book by McCrory years ago that mentioned doing this for people on a budget. Anyone else ever tried this?
