That looks good to me as well!. Leave the flyers out and those are really decent groups!

That is a great re(re?)build!  My $42 is in the mail :).

Let some of the crack chunk and especially (less distance for smaller caliber) table shooters out that way give it a try...it takes a lot of practice and experience to get those strings down to what some of them turn in!

Seriously, I bet someone shot it a bunch in the condition you've put it back too, so I really like the way you did it.

A really sympathetic restoration. I do love how you sorted the lock, an freshen out the barrel.  Looks like a good shooter, stringing on the last target is sighting error.  a great save as it could have finished up as just parts or tossed out.

Cheers and Happy New Year
