Pleased with the barrel blank. As a matter of fact I did the first test firing about 1/2 hour ago. It is a 25-20 in a small rolling block of my own design. The basis for the physical size of the rcvr, the hammer and block was a very old Danish Husky 20ga but I did a completely new design of the bottom metal/trigger/main spring (coil type). The buttstock fastens to the rcvr via thru bolt which is accessed at the crotch where the pistol grip meets the rear part of the stock. There is a safety inside the front of the trigger guard which pushes forward to release (similar to some older shotguns)
Cutting,threading,chambering -- no problems. Everything seems laser straight. Complete rifle in Myrtle stock but sans sights is 6# 7 oz.
I think this is my 14'th barrel blank from you guys ----- won't be the last, I hope.
