    ................Looks like a very attractive rifle to me. While the walnut doesn't have much 'Figure' it has a very nice grain structure. The only thing wrong with the stock (and it's only MY taste) is that I tend to like it a bit redder :-) Don't...

    .............A good, cheap way to deal with lead smears, splatters, and such on iron blocks is to simply get a 4" long (or so) piece of 1/4" copper water pipe. Mash (technical term) one end flat. The flat end can be like a bulldozer and the 2 end...
