Just finishing up this silver mounted 36. half stock. Its for the oldest grandchild to start hunting squirrels this coming season. All that's left is a little engraving on the lock.

That's a nice one, Molly.
Flintlock Hunter - very nice indeed. Not too long a pull for him, eh?

Just for fun I'll put all 3 up.  Harrison on the top, Roger Sells in the middle (32 cal) and Don Stith 38 cal on the bottom.  Roger's rifle can via a great gentleman, Mr. Bill Warden.  That purchase was one I will never forget.  And it's a story to remember but for another time.

Here's one I just finished from a parts set I got from WayneB. It started as a Knob Mountain Melchior Fordney parts set. I was too chicken to attempt all that carving on birdseye maple so I made a southern rifle instead. 42"X 3/4" .36 caliber getz barrel. Chambers Late Ketland and Davis triggers.  I used a Kibler SMR buttplate and rear sight.  Still playing with loads but so far it's shot great with everything I've put down it

I recently picked up this little Joe Schell halfstock .36 for when I feel like going for the bushytails with a cap gun...

I think so too. I have a soft spot for the dainty little guns.

Thank you! I thought about going a little lighter with it to make the birdseye more dramatic but I like darker finishes so stuck with what I know.
