Handmade from a plank by yours truly. The stock is cut from the mountains near my house (air dried multiple years). Beautiful grain and curl. A very small section behind the tang has silver wirework.

Best,
Allen

Do you still have the target you used to test out the rifle? What load were you using? Why didn't you brown the barrel and lock?
Peter,

I did not save the target, but used an 80 grain powder load (what I use to hunt).

In regards to your question about browning the lock/barrel, to quote the man who first started teaching me about rifle building, "Why brown a barrel when God will do the work for you?" That being said, I do keep it well oiled for maintenance reasons.

Happy to answer any more questions you may have via PM, reply, or phone.

Best,
Allen
 
Why didn't you brown the barrel and lock?
Not in the market for a gun at the moment, but this appears to be a well executed example. Guessing you would prefer to see a rough casting (not polished) finish, browned to go with a non draw filed browned barrel, with a nice shiny bowling ally type polyurethane finish on the wood? I understand that many of the guns for sale here have browned barrels and non polished browned locks, but it just isn’t correct. For me, I wouldn’t consider purchasing a gun with ‘contemporary’ finishing to wood (I particularly ‘like’ the ones that look like they were done with brush) and metal without a significant discount below the unmolested kit or parts set cost. Too much work to undo and correct things.

Now someone comes along with a nicely made gun with proper looking finish and folks don’t appreciate it for what it is.

OP, hold your price, the gun will sell.
