Robertfishes...it does leave a big hole, but I shot a boar hog with it in Greenswamp WMA in SW Central Fl. right in the ear at about 5yds.,I walked up on him laying in a mud hole. When the smoke cleared he was getting up real wobbly and staggered off into high palmettos then dropped dead. Couldn't believe he got up, but they are tough.

PAarcher... Yes I did all the stock work. I drew up the stock profile I wanted and mailed it to a stock supplier and he rough cut the shape like in the picture. Since I don't have a band saw I then hand sawed, rasped, gouged and sanded to the shape I wanted then did the detailed carving I wanted.

You can order what they call pre-carved stocks for the style or school of flintlock or percussion you want, but the actual detail carving is not done...just a rough profile of the style you want. Still have to sand and inlay.

That is just amazing! You must be a very patient man to be able to deal with that.

My hat's off to you my friend, That is some truly incredible work! There are few things more beautiful than a finely crafted weapon of that era. Now I'm going to have to go to Dixons and drool.

Modern gun I like my 7mm-08....it has killed everything I have ever shot with it, from 10# groundhogs to 800# elk and quite a few deer and pigs in between.
