    I received a nicely figured Tennessee stock and the back ordered Deluxe Siler in the mail today. The stock looks great and I can find no significant imperfections. I think Pecatonica may be my go to source for stocks going forward. The .50 barrel arrived about two weeks ago and will start fitting now. Have put some of the other components on a list for Santa.

    Here are the parts to start with. I can't wait to see this stock after aqua fortis and finish.

    Somewhere in the cobwebs of my mind, I remember hearing that most precarved stocks are done by the same person.

    Have been making good progress on the above winter project. The barrel, tang, lock, triggers and guard have been fitted. The lock, triggers, guard and respective mounting screws have been browned. Having just finished draw filing the barrel I have renewed appreciation for the effort of the old time gunsmiths in filing a swamped barrel. Its hard to imagine the number of hours that must have been required. I have seen some references indicating the possible use of a draw shave.
