The wood finish is AF and Tried and True. The barrel is blued and other metal is a grayish finish.. The overall length is a bit over 26 inches.
The rifle was copied mainly after the Gamble family J&S.. With a little help from three other J&S rifles and maybe a bit I picked up other places.
I want to acknowledge some help I had on this project from two friends. Howard (Gene) Kendall volunteered to do the mill work on the barrel. Which I quickly accepted. He did a great job. Jim Kebler went to a lot of trouble to find me the perfect piece of wood. He did a great job also. Without this wood it would be a much lesser rifle. My thanks to both of these fellows...
