Nice use of the stavemaster there in the one picture.  :OK
Looks good, that's a nice piece of wood for the stock.

Real nice build along, Mike.  You make it look almost easy!

Thanks Paul, its not been easy and will never be the same. I have lost the best thing I ever had! But I'm trying to get back to somewhat of a normal life.

Trigger guard is in and you can swing my truck from it before it would move! Went in real nice and tight.

Shaping up real well Mike.  :OK
I like how the well the stave vise is working as a stock vise...  :D

Got the front sight in today dovetailed in all nice and tight.



Rear sight is in. This thing had the thinnest base plate to dovetail in I have ever seen so I soldered it in as well.

Doing a little scraping on the stock getting it ready to carve! Look at that curl!
