    That’s kind of how I’m leaning. I believe this gun is very rare

    I don’t think the gun needs anything done to it, besides refinishing the stock.

    Any suggestions on who I should have spruce up the stock? I was thinking of send it to Mark Larson for the repairs and refinish

    I thought that you had the skills! I’ve seen your work.

    This one scares me. I’m not sure I’d do it justice

    The last one you did would look pretty damn good on that gradeIII. I think you should do it. If your not comfortable doing Mark is surely capable. Maybe you do wood and send off to get the checkering redone by someone.

    I’d be hesitant of sending gun parts across the border. Art’s can do it if you can’t find anyone closer.

    Wow, he does beautiful work. Still, if I had your skills, I’d do it myself.

    Come on Justin, that will be a joke for you to refinish the stock. If not, sale to me that little jewel.

    I’m not sure I’m there yet. Here is the last one I did. Still need to have the checkering recut. This one has some severe water damage I couldn’t completely fix

    Why don’t you wait to get there then. Is they an emergency to refinish it. Often, I find it pay back to take the time to explore several options. Nice job on that last one.

    No emergency to get it done. No matter how hard I try I think you’ll be able to see where the forearm was cracked. I need your feedback on where I can improve on my skills

    Can I get that I'm not there yet on my grade II stock please?

    In my country, we will say that Justin is more catholic then the Pope. You’re trying to do a better job then the original.

    We are going to have to talk about that, you would have to fit your stock to my receiver because I suck at that. There is no way I would even consider trying to fit the one you just finished. I would screw the pooch. If only I had your wood skills.

    I did check the ejection port last night and it has been opened up unfortunately

    Late here but that is really nice example. Don’t see anything fancy or unusual like that my world. Spectacular engraving pattern . Tell me is the LH cheek piece stock original to the gun?
