Mighty fine, Paul!  Your forging and engraving are very fine.  Love all of it.

What I can see, I like.   Some more photos would be great; particularly of the forged mounts and patchbox.

I really like that buttstock architecture, and the deep finish. 

Is that gun one of your creation, or does it follow an original?  There is no negative behind that question, as I really like that gun.  I'd enjoy shooting that one for sure. 

God Bless,   Marc

Thanks all. I built it for a friend. He outlined the stock shape from one of Hershel's patterns. Next time I'll take more photos. He picked it up.
