no pictures....yet.....but she has been shaped down drastically since these photos....S K I N N Y as Karen Carpenter on a diet...........and I did a special in-the-barrel front sight.....not dovetailed.... yup, i know....no way to adjust windage.....but these ARE Kentucky rifles????...so, use 'kentucky windage'!!! :jmp:

pictures soon...........the RR is being worked down.....takes about 3hrs work to make one.....you start with a fat piece of hickory....and shave shave shave......so you have a slight taper, and 'bulb' end.....
