Nice work! May I ask what you used for the stock finish? I like the sheen you have on the stock. Perfect for a classic firearm.

It’s simple tung oil Mike. Hand rubbed to that sheen is all.
Thanks for the compliment.

Just an update...I think I am pretty much finished with what I wanted to do to make this package complete. I got a case for it...


I had to change the interior around a bit to make the specific accessories fit. Not as hard as one might think. The felt I got wasn't a perfect match, but close enough...


Here it is all put to bed...


Also got set up for "business" too. I have a few leads on some loads but I need to determine what the twist is and what will stabilize best in this little beauty.


The S+B factory shells will more than suffice in the meantime for any deer hunting I may do. I am absolutely itching to get it out for pheasants. Raining today and I don't want to get it wet *sigh*.

Looks good Steve, where do you go for pheasants. Hullett?
Had a good chat and some IPA’s with Dan a few weeks ago. He was telling me you were looking at drilling’s. the weather doesn’t look like it is going to cooperate for a bit.

Yep, Hullett mainly then Pelee. Dans going too. Should be able to test her out.

The model 12 will be in the mix too.

Right on. My son went to Hullett on Monday. They got 1 hen,without any dogs😂. Pelee sounds like a good trip.
Maybe we’llrun Into each other at Hullett. May try and get there this Friday.
Cheers
Ps. Sent you a pm

Well, I connected with the drilling this weekend on Pelee island. The first game taken by me with this gun was a hen pheasant. Maybe a bit fitting, as that was my first game bird ever taken on my first hunt at 15 years old.


I admittedly fumbled with the greener safety a few times before I got onto it. I found myself selecting the rifle barrel when the action got hot. By noon, I had it figured out.


Felt good to get it back into use...


Now, onto big game...
