PostSubject: Rampant Lion   Thu 13 Apr - 14:06

This is a project I have been working on, it is a Virginia style rifle, Colrain "A" swamped barrel, grade 3 Maple, Late English flintlock, Davis double set triggers...I carved a Rampant Lion on the stock in honor of my Scottish heritage, the Lion is reared up on it's back legs roaring in defiance to all the world...This shows the progression and the final product...



Beginning the carving



Working the outline



Background is complete, using a chipping style for texture



First part of staining



Final product, the project took approximately 4 hours from start to finish



The final work on the furniture is in progress along with the final coats on the stock...This has been a really fun project....

Great job I love to see projects that just make a gun come alive. Makes it one of a kind  for the owner.

It's a beauty and the lion looks fantastic! I noticed the irregular horizontal line on the fore-end. Is it the outline of a mountainous landscape or your latest EKG? Wink


I've always wanted to shoot a rifle with a swamped barrel to feel how it balanced. How about schooling me/us in the nuances of a swamped barrel?

Thanks to all for the remarks....I like making them and shooting them also...Working on a couple of Tennessee rifles...I finished a Tennessee rifle in cherry a while back...A common mans rifle...





These are the style of rifle I like to make....
