That is awesome.

Certainly looks better than my 1897 Annie Oakley.

The only thing better than a great looking rifle, is one that shoots good too. Congrats

Do you still have the original stock set that went with it?

No - put the original stock set on TPC and it sold within minutes.

Very very nice, I wish I could afford to send mine to Canyon Creek, their work is top notch. So glad yours turned out so well and the comments on here make it all worth it; enjoy.

That is such a beautiful rifle...I would think that squirrels would just stop and stare at it in awe!

Excuse my ignorance but was your stock blank sealed at the ends? It certainly looks to have been stored properly. I'm curious because I sometimes run across nice looking walnut blanks and want to make a smart purchase. The figure/feathering in that stock is amazing and really compliments the engraving of the rifle.

Yes the set was sealed with a thick coat of something. The wood survived 37 years in a basement and Leroy found no problems when shaping it, so must have been effective !
