I've had one of these in my hand.  They sound amazing, and the craftsmanship is super.

I make your score to be 43. A couple were real squeakers. Well done - you are in second place at this point! Hope you guys will get out again before the month gets away from us.

Stock has been lightly wetted to show the curl in the stock.  There is visible masking tape residue on the butt stock.

Tennessee Southern Mt Flintlock Rifle Parts Set, L&R, Green Mt, CM3 Maple Stock.  50 caliber Green Mountain barrel is 15/16" x 42".   Iron furniture.   Lollipop tang.  L&R flintlock lock.  13 3/4" length of trigger pull on double set, double action triggers.  4 1/4" drop at the heel.  Stock is pre carved and will need final inletting.  Stock is marked 15/16 and "4" on the nose.  Don't know if the 4 is for CM4.  I would grade this stock at least a CM3 if not CM4.  The toe is chipped, but it should disappear when the butt plate and toe plate are installed.   Everything you need except a few screws for the toe plate and butt plate, and pins for the thimbles.  $1000 plus actual shipping.

What Mike said.  I don't think it's a good idea to polish any metal parts until assembly is complete and the stock is fully shaped etc.  I see some people wanting to do this early and it can only cause more work.
