Has anybody purchased any books from Shumway Publishing in York, Pa lately.

Thanks for your attention.

Here's one I cut & fit yesterday for a JP Beck rifle. I couldn't find any scraps from this stock that were suitable, so I foraged from my scrap pile of about 70 gun projects and found a piece from a project about 20 years ago that was a pretty good match. The tricky part might be getting them stain the same.



The moral is: never throw away nice scraps/drops!

It's called a captive key or wedge.This is NOT a junk gun and worth restoring.Is the tumbler broken or is it only a missing hammer?
Get that lock working and I would not do much more to "restore" it other than a cleaning.Is the bore good and has it been checked to
see if has a long forgotten load in it??
