More progress on the Elsie restoration


Twelve Pointer
Have been spending a lot of time inletting all the metalwork into the replacement stock and am getting close, mostly just have to cut the stock to the proper length, fit the butt plate and grip cap before doing the final sanding and finish work. No plans at this time to do the checkering as this will be a working stock, not one for pretty, and I'm just tired of messing with it so will move on to other responsibilities as soon as the finish is on it.

I'd hate to think how many hours I've spent on this so to "quoth the raven, nevermore"!
