Got the barrel pinned to the stock and some shaping done on the front end. Lock inlet next.

Guys I'm far from being a gun a gun builder. I just enjoy doing it and sharing the progress as I go along, so enjoy it if you want but don't take it as gospel.

I'm trying to figure out how you would create that recessed port in a straight line with the ramrod channel.  Just a chisel?
It's simple...just keep putting one foot in front of the other.

I use a drill on a 3' rod for the hole in the forearm and use a chisel for the grove at first then I use a rat tail file to even it out then a piece of sand paper wrapped around a 6'' piece of ramrod to finish it up.

Worked on my least favorite things, but got it in good. I didn't feel like inletting the lock today so I got the entry thimble out of the way.
