    I will! I was just told my wife a few days ago that I needed to give you a call. I was by there the other day and almost stopped, but didn’t want to do it unannounced.

    I have photos of a couple 500's I've built, but I also have literally thousands of pictures to sift thru to find them.
    Any how this one is a 500 Jeffery built on one of my own actions. I think I finished this one back in about '13 or '14. I feeds that 500 Jeffery round like a charm. A man's just gotta love that 500 Jeffery, that thing is a sheer powerhouse in my opinion. This one I milled the sights integral to the barrel express style and the front bridge has been set up to take a Trijicon RMR. Dirk Shimmel over in Gillette Wyoming was making the bases for the RMR, not real sure if he still does. In any event the bottom of the Shimmel mount is designed to attach to a Talley 1/2 inch wide dovetail. To me this seems a super slick way to mount a red dot on a rifle of any size for close up work in the field on game. Cheers

    Some impressive wood there. Thanks for taking the time to post some of what you do. Looks like first class work from someone that not knows how to do it but also really cares. Thanks for sharing.

    the question begging to be asked.....
    Will you make a stock for someone from a blank already purchased?
