Have been working on a custom 9.3x62 off and on for a while, honey-doo projects and a new trophy room kept pushing it to the back burner. I had a old FN mauser in 30/06 with a shot out barrel. so I sent the action to Roger Ferrell from the gunmakers guild and he did the barrel work and rust bluing. (24 in tapered octagon barrel ) I did the stock work. Had a old english walnut blank that didn't look like much but boy did I get a surprise when I started cutting into it. Was very pleased with the fiddle back and nice grain pattern that came out. All that is left is to checker the stock.
