This rifle was built entirely to the desires of the client. He selected a very nice figured piece of locally harvested Black Walnut. The client provided the 7/8" straight 50 cal. barrel. He selected the Lehigh Co. stock architecture and requested that the gun be built as a half stock. The metal parts were rust blued. The cheek piece inlay was selected by the client. This is an example of "cherry picking" design and features which worked well to produce a pleasing end product, such is not always the case.
