    Did not read through the whole thing but he is just making the action and the stock from scratch right. He would need some serious tooling to rifle the barrel. Well unless the barrel was a smooth bore.

    I was actually going to post this and forgot....

    Dude has some mad skill. But seriously...... WTF forge? Who has shit like that laying around? Amazing work though, no doubt.

    Still a shame he didn't punch it K-Hornet.

    We had one in our old shop. My grandpa really wanted one in our new shop, even though he never used the old one.

    Damn looks like his main thing is making custom knifes. If you look at his site he has some Real expensive but quality stuff. And also that double barrel goes for $5,000.00

    Base price for the double barrel is $5K...I think he said that one is closer to $7500 due to some upgrades.

    That's awesome. I wish I could do some stuff like that. I just want to be able to make a custom stock.
