A friend of mine has one and just finished a major overhaul of the finish. He added a few new lines to the plain jane stock: he carved a cheekpiece into the butt and also cut a schnabel on the forend. He has a way with wood...and he is a master mechanic. He is the guy who designed and built the Bounty Hunter Semi several years ago for a guy named ray Carpenter. If you are familiar with the truck pulls you know the name.
I know great work when I see it and I envy those with skills. Me? I make good coffee, good wine and good beer. My sausage isn't bad either.
1895Gunner that is a sweet stock. I would love to find one... maybe one of those will fall in my lap one day too. Ick, Nice M1, and yeah ours are probably long lost bro's. Have to compare numbers to see how far off they were on the assembly...
