Lots of money in the world now Spit. Lots of guys are building guns and bamboo rods in their garage one at a time, and getting good money for them.

Quality will always sell.  Wink

Thanks for the compliment, reality is I'm not fast enough or skilled enough to do it for a living and not sure I want to turn my labor of love into just labor.  I could see building at my leisure and then selling what I build but that would be like selling my kids.  Then to build to another persons specifications would be difficult, I start with an idea of what a gun will look like but it changes as the project progresses almost taking on a life of its own.  Maybe some day......

Now waiting for some parts from TOW, buttplate, wedge pins, underlug staples and a few other odds and end.  I will be pouring/installing a pewter nose cap and all steel parts will be browned.

 But now I am forced to return to work  Sad  so I'm not sure when the work will continue.
