I'm figuring this rifle is good practice it is cheap and mistakes won't cost me much. The experience gained will be invaluable when it is time for a real nice rifle. Baby steps right? This is what I have gotten done so far on this overhaul. The .54 cal. barrel, under lug, and tang all browned. Stock has been stripped. Now I have to re-inlet the patch box, and butt plate Seeing how they no longer fit. They butt plate was pulled tight against the stock by the two screws, so tight that when I tried to remove the one on the back side the head just popped off. Looking at the butt plate to stock inlet it's not even close. The patch box no longer fits the inlet I could probably hammer it in as they did at the factory but I need the practice. The escutcheons wedge plate were never inlet, so I'll be doing that too. I haven't checked whether the lock fits back in the stock because its at home and I'm at work.
