PostSubject: First after Op rifle build   August 3rd 2018, 8:31 pm

Just got tracking number in this evening that my kit gun was shipped out today!

I can not put long hours into it every day due to my condition, BUT, I am sure in hell going to take my sweet time and go slow and keep the gun looking clean and myself feeling good.

I believe I will start on the lock and put a great deal of time and polishing into it before moving on to the trigger. I really want to deck this next kit gun out in high quality fashion and make it something to be really proud of.

Shouldn't come as a surprise but I will be doing another Traditions St.Louis Hawken .50cal in percussion. We'll see what kind of special things I can do with this rifle.

And this little gadget I am going to start calling the life saver! I got my lock inletting cleaned up, shaped & fitted in as little as 3 minutes! It also is a favorite tool to remove thin amounts of wood in the barrel channel as I am bedding it.

Build is on hold until I get a stock replacement Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad :scucks

If I don't get a new stock, I  will have plenty of spare parts for my other st louis hawken I guess.

I'll do 3 of yours VS this damn thing! Laughing

Same thing on this one as yours. They dinged the holes in the lock so now I have to figure out what size of metric tap I need.
