Nice Bob. I really like the finish on the wood. What kind of stain did you use and what's your secret to get the dark/light finish on it? That gonna be a shooter or display rifle. How much time you recon you got into it?
I didn't keep up with the hours, it takes a little time to do the inlays, I probably have 40-50 hrs in it, this is not my first one however and the previous builds took a while longer, the stain is Laurel Mountain Forge, I just gathered the components from differrent suppliers, the light/dark config. of the wood is a characteristic of the curly maple and to get one with curl from end to end like this one you just have to drop the coins, this piece of wood was rated at 4x by the supplier. It has a 40" .50 cal Green Mtn barrel, Siler lock, Davis double set triggers, full curly maple stock with a 15" pull, haven't shot it yet but I probably will.
