Check out Art Riser's blog this AM. There's a super Lancaster by Shane Emig featured today. You don't see much of his work out here in Iowa..... ;)

Say, any of you boys smithies? Or, if not smithies per se, were you otherwise trained in the metallurgic arts before straitened circumstances forced you into a life of aimless wanderin'?

Wow!  That patchbox stippling must have taken a week to finish.

I believe that's as nice looking Lancaster that I havecseen.

Curious to know if those triggers are a close copy of early Dickert triggers. I assume they are but I don't remember every seeing any made like that.

Wow, Eye candy for sure. Super nice in all aspects. On a 1-10 scale I would give it a 10+.

That is a very gorgeous Lancaster.  The engraving and carving are flawless; such attention to detail is excellent.

Shane had that rifle “in the white” at the CLA last August. The carving and engraving was super, and what a piece of wood!  I’d been following his build on his Instagram account, and sure enjoyed getting to see it in person, though unfinished, it was still a very impressive piece of work.

He’s a heck of a nice young man, too!

Jacob Dickert would be jealous. I have built two of those Dickert's so I am familiar with all the details and this is the BEST version of that rifle I have ever seen! Beautiful from end to end!
