Doug:

I sure cant argue with the looks of that rifle. I Lust after a Western Classic.... However, I would really like the octagon barrel to be octagon all the way to the front ring of the action. That "blob" as a transition to the action just turns me off completely.

No offence to you gun.... it is spectacular.... just my likes is all.

Beautiful!
I wondered if it had a skeletonized grip cap. Nicely done. Any special treatments on the butt plate?

Alas, no skeleton butt plate. Just a lowly checkered steel Neidner. I guess you have to cut back somewhere.

Somehow I think even that is elevated to an artful piece.

I second that, those barrel sets everything off for sure! Such a Beauty Rifle and Wood!!!

That is a work of art -

Doug - I find it difficult to find the words to describe that work of art.

That one deserves to be mounted on the wall with adjustable lighting showing it off 24x7.
