Contemplating my winter smoothbore project as a half stock. Already sourced a decent maple full stock slab blank, but the more I think about it a walnut half stock has maybe more appeal. Colerain 2/3rds round barrel.

Anyone have any pictures of such a thing so I can get some build ideas?

Looking now but many auctioned guns could be argued to be restocked as half stocks. Looking to see what paintings I might have on my phone now

Here is a gun I used to own. It was originally made in half stock about 1730 and was later restocked by Ketland and an updated lock added
