This is a simple design compared to Cody's Box but I wanted to share it with the crew here. This is the first box I have cut with my GRS GraverMach, 901 handpiece, 120 degree square. I did a little engraving on the lock plate and even inlaid a little copper wire. I hope you all enjoy and any comments to help me along will be appreciated.
Thanks for all the kind words. The butt plate, side plate and trigger guard are copies off of an original rifle that I think dates from the 1750 time frame. These were used on several rifles built in that time frame. If you look at Shumways CRA books you will see this same furniture with the engraving cast in on several rifles. I built this rifle for a gentelman in California and he requested that this furniture be used. This is a big rifle, 14 3/4" pull, LC Rice 54 cal 44" 1 1/8" @ breech barrel. I am sorry I don't have pictures of the full rifle but I do have one of the cheek side carving. Again I hope all enjoy it.
