    Thank you. It isn't rocket science or brain surgery.

    Faster is better only when opening a safe at 3 AM in a place you don't belong.

    A hacksaw and files and some drills, hand operated are all the tools that can be used by an apprentice gunsmith to make his Masterpiece double barrel shotgun action.
    A lathe, drill press and milling machine are nice to have, but they just make manufacture quicker and repeatable.

    Of course I don't have any pictures of the guns that I butchers during the first 20 years of my life.

    Custom wood grips from Craig Spegel out in Oregon. He does nice work. Two of my guns are outfitted with his grips. Cocobolo wood.
