Butt Plate Reconstruction by John Ennis

This was a Steve Alexander/Lynton Mckenzie rifle. The owner wanted Ennis to skeletonize the butt plate because it was to slippery on the shoulder. Lynton engraved the comb extension on the butt plate. John pierced the butt plate, inlayed the wood into the piercing and made the small screws on the sides of the plate. He engraved it in suite to Mckenzies work. He also checkered the exposed wood in the cutout.
