Sorry, my 1st pictures were taken with my I-potatoe phone..... :crzy:

This is the cherry stocked, 46" straight 40cal C Burton barrel, long tang, Dennis G made the TG, TOTW nose cap, thimbles, buttplate re-bent to less swoop/pinned toe plate to BP w/brass rod, hickory RR tapered with metal tip, late Ketland lock with tail filed off~in-the-barrel front sight, and my rear sight. browned, then aged metal and the wood aged. My 'colonial interpretation' of the Breens KY rifle of the early 1800's.......... :bigrin:

:kap: just opposite I'm afraid......I seem to have lost my energy, maybe it's just wintertime, and my health issues.....but have a hard time just getting out of bed. I know I NEED to get up, and the job isn't bad.....but boy it's a chore just to wanna get moving.....making these rifles is taking me longer and longer.....seems to be easier just to sit on the couch with the kitty........
