    One thing I also like is scale miniature arms - guns - knives - archery equipment - so I decided to have this one cast in bronze - bore is about .18 so it will shoot a .177 lead BB with a few grains of powder. Having it cast now.

    Was going to do a scale Tannenberg next

    Exactly like that

    Funny I came across pics of yours yesterday and was looking to duplicate the serpentine for my little one. Looks like it runs through the center of the stock

    Jax,

    Some run through the stock, and some are merely nailed on the side.

    All best,
    Richard.

    So looking down on it from the top is it "Y" shaped to hold the match?

    Yes, Jax, a 'Y or Vee shape, the one above has the wing -nut to tighten the match in place, but some had a sliding collar that simply slid forward, to tighten the jaws against the match.
