    This one just about trumps the springfield, something beautiful about a tiger striped stock and unadorned iron...

    Here's something a lil different.

    My brother took an hour or 2 out of his life to re-finish this old SKS's stock. He never re-finished a piece of wood in his life prior to this one. 1954 sks.

    And a grand old lady - made in 1906. Stock replaced by my Grandfather after a particularly bad fall down a mountain in Idaho in 1912 for a whopping $12.50, shipped from St. Louis as I recall. 30 Win on the barrel.

    Dont know that we have ever found a real Hawken Shop full stock flinter. Full stock percussion sure but flint..... I dont think so. Even so, I love em. That L&R lock would be just like the one they would have likely used. Are those L&R triggers or a set of Bob Roller stuff. Just askin

    Fellows that 'flinter' was made by Tom Watson over in Georgia and he does excellent work! I think Tom sold me this rifle out of maybe an emergency for cash?????can't really say.......but I do know that he told me he hated to have to let me have it as it was probably one of the best shooting ML he's ever had over the previous 40 years! Has a Sharon 38" .50 cal. barrel, L&R Lock, and shoots lights out! Here's a target I shot with it when I was filing down the front sight and was learning how much of the front sight not to take when shooting at 100 yards. The two high shots were the first two and after an adjustment they went pretty much to center! I use 100 grs. KIK 2F powder and an .018" thickness pillow ticking patch lubed with Canola oil! Shoots quite well out to 200 yards I might add! I've forgotten????? what the triggers are but they sure work great!

    Besides my F-Class Rifle, I call this beautiful.
    This is an M1 Garand, Winchester, one of 30k that had duplicate serial numbers with Springfield. Produced in June of 1943. I am still looking for the holy grail, its matching SN Springfield brother. Probably lost in a jungle somewhere, but I can hope.
