    Nice!

    For me it's my minty '74 Medalist. I just like lookin' at her.

    ...At least till I dig thru the safe for one of my other "favorites." :)

    I agree. Old wood colors as a backdrop is a great look.

    I'm loving your '74 Metalist Gary. If you ever sell it, let me know.

    It's purdy.,.as they say in the South, Just curious, are all guns referred to
    by female gender like ships/boats? My Dad always referred to his car (machine)
    as" her" too.

    Thanks Janet, but I'll likely leave this world still owning that Medalist. Her crisp trigger is amazing.

    Regarding her "gender"... certain things are simply so incredibly beautiful and elegant it's obvious they are female :)

    These are some of my favorite rifles. There is NO TELLING how much venison the old '94 has harvested. It is a loaner unless I am using it.

    I get a funny look when I offer it as a loaner, but when it is put on game, all I see is smiles. It will pleasantly surprise you on paper with the 150 gr Core-Lokt.

    The 35 Marlin has miles on it as well, just not as many as the Winchester.

    This is my custom Sako I built 30 years ago. It features a single shot bench rest action and has a Wm. Hobaugh cut rifled 24" bbl chambered for 7mm-08. The stock is a Harry Lawson Company (Tucson, AZ) Cochice thumbhole in Hawaiian Koa with tiger maple tip and grip caps.

    this is just about the nicest piece of wood you can find and the engraving is top notch as well.

    Goose,
    Every stock I do is custom and since no two are alike so there are differences in what is quoted for every gun.

    Here's an idea for this kind of work labor $1500-2400. Wood like this $800-$1200 to be safe.

    Depending on the Gunfitting involved to make a pattern you can shoot well. A stock for your self around would be around $2300 on the low side to $3600 on the high side..
