Not sure whether Mike ever posts on here, but I just saw his latest Fabulous rifle on the CLA Facebook page.
Quite impressive!  Itís definitely worth a look.
Perhaps he will post it here also.

Amazing piece of work. I saw that one in its early stages and Mike was not happy with that stock blank because it was too soft. This piece is an absolute mastery of the craft.

If you do an internet search for Mike it should direct you to his fb page. You should be able to look in. Iím not and will never be a fakebook subscriber but I can look at his page. I looked in on the progress of the rifle that he made me.

His next project is RCA #42 , described as a Valentine Beck in the first Moravian book. Itís supposed to be going to a collector in Kentucky.

Just visited Mike's Facebook page. Top shelf work for sure. Noticed that one butt plate with a lot of engraving on the face of the plate, was engraving there common on american guns? I think  "some collector in Kentucky " will be very happy.   ;)
