Nifty, I like your patina. The cheek piece looks a little long though. I miss the muzzle loading forum. They love me over there.

Welcome to ALR Kauffman.  Looks good to me.  I like the overall finish as well.

I like it. I didn’t know Pecatonica could provide an Octagon to Round barrel for the Verner. Is it rifled?

Looks Great! Been watching your videos and really enjoying them. Just watched the one where you interviewed Allen Martin, Love Allen. I have a .50 Schimmel by him

Welcome to our side! Looks like a fine job on that one. One thing I spotted right off was you filed the sides of the forend slightly below the barrel centerline. That is a nice detail most miss and it makes the rifle look slimmer!

I like seeing a good, relatively modest rifle. No patchbox, no nose cap, but still a buttplate and a little bit of flair in other areas. It's tastefully balanced. It seems like the temptation is often times to go either extreme poor boy or dolled up to the nines; with some sort of patchbox, capbox, or grease hole being almost mandatory on everything. I'm looking forward to seeing what you make in the future.
