Finally finished up the stock today. Just took my time and added truoil, let it dry, buff, repeat over and over and over.

I got the barrel and under rib browning in the bath room and of course, I forgot the tang as usual. I'll take that in the shop tomorrow and get that all prepped and to the cigar humidor she goes.

I'll have pics once the rifle is complete.

That's nice.

Now, where are the pics and story of the COMPLETE hog hunt at falcon's place? A photo of a smashed round ball isn't good enough. nono

Well, shes about 99.9% complete! I just have to take the ram rod out into the shop and turn it down slightly as the stock channel has a tight spot. Just easier to make the ramrod a bit thinner and all will be set.

Jon, do you think it would look better if the patchbox were darkened?

I think it would but not really sure.

It might, but I really wanted to give that a try first so it would brighten up the rifle a bit.
