Here is the final masterpiece, all assembled ready to shoot. The scope is a Kahles 3-9x42 AO, I love these scopes light and crystal clear. The rifle weighs right over 6 pounds, balances and shoulders like a fine double. This is the rifle Dakota Arms should have produced, or close to it!!!!!!

WATCHADDIC: I am truly speechless, what a work of art in Walnut and steel! Just finished reading the thread and admiring the pics. Now shoot some groups, can't wait to see what that rifle is capable of.... You sir, are a very lucky man to own such a masterpiece

Inspirational! If you don't mind a question, how much did this work of art set you back? Your attention to, and fascination with, fine detail was honed, no doubt, by your love of fine watches!

Cheers,
Bill

That is a fine rig! I can just imagine what how the finger would curl around that trigger! The butt plate is amazing.

Sort of makes me wonder about selling every rimfire I have to make one.

I have looked at this multiple times, just beautiful. Your vision and the craftsmanship are so amazing. Is the your baby or do you have anything nicer?

Have to add that your mounts are one of my favorite things about this.

That is an incredible work of craftsmanship and artistry wrapped around a shooting iron. I have been watching the thread all day and as each update showed just a superb attention to detail I was totally amazed. Not only did they do a great job, your documenting it in great detail to share with others is top notch!

I am not the sharpest knife in the drawer, never went to college or anything beyond high school. With that said and not wanting to show my education in trying to put into words what I see and think of this rifle of yours all I can and will say Watchaddic is WOW!

The things some gentleman (and women) can do with their hands and minds is....well.....mind blowing! That wood and what it was turned into is unbelievable.

Respectfully,
Dennis

That is extremely fine art in the shape of a rifle.
