    Sorry about the dust! The towel had some on it and the grease on the barrels was like a magnet.

    Charlie is on his way to Silver Dollar with his new toy.

    Nice stockwork. I thought k80 was hardened, had deep factory engraving and could not be engraved.

    LOL The receiver is a M-32 and the barrels triggers and guts are K-80.

    Sorry I did not specify! However there were several K-80's that were brought in with no engraving or hardening for a few select engravers.

    Nice work Joe,

    The wood turned out very nice. It looks like Claro or it could be a light color of Black Walnut. Have a very happy holiday.

    Well, what is the wood, who carved it, who engraved it, anything.

    I was fortunate enough to see this gun yesterday in person and I'm telling you the pictures don't due it justice. It is a very, very, nice piece. The owner, as he should be, is very proud of it.

    Hi Joe, What a beautiful stock and forend you made for Charlie. I talked to him today and he's down at the $.

    He mentioned to me earlier in the month that you were working on a stock for him.

    I hope to see it the end of January.

    Regards,

    Joe
