Nothing to critique that I can see except why do some people have so much talent and all I've learned to do is play the radio?! :wink: Dang fine job! :thumbsup:

fantasic work! but holy cats thats a big vent hole!
1/8" to 5/64" is about right for a touch hole to be sure the powder grains are close enough to the barrel/liner face to instantly catch the incandescent heat of the primer flare. A properly sized touch hole can look a bit imposing when you're used to seeing what passes for such on many production guns. :wink:

Beautiful! :hatsoff:

Am I seeing the tang correctly in the picture...does it actually extend well up into the comb? There's reflection there, but I think I can see it extending up the nose into the comb. If so, that must have been a doosey to inlet!

Would love to hear more details of the gun and some pictures of the cheek piece side.

A Very, Very NICE rifle! The wood is outstanding. The work you put into it is commensurate with the components.

I know nothing about the TN rifle, but of the few I have seen pictured, yours stands above them in quality. I would assume that the extended tang serves to strengthen the wrist and comb areas.

Well done. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
