If the rest of the gun comes out as nice as that forend you will have a true beauty to behold. Can't wait to shoot it so don't spare the coin.

This is not a post. It is an on-line tribute to Chris Dawe.

Wow, you were'nt kidding Eggar that's some killer grain. That tribute to Chris Dawe may not be a post but it sure is some eye candy. Who's doing the metal work George?

Thank you George,this one was really a wonder...as to if and why, like we discussed, if it was from any other gun it probably should have been burnt!!!

The smell of chicken #$@% when I raised the dent's and tried to re-form the drop point's was quite distinct,the worm /bug holes were another thing ,I mean you can't have chicken #$@% without them.And the front wood I really thought was a total loss,from a structural point of view ...the picture doesn't really show the damage the wire wheel caused.

For what it was I'm quite pleased with it,and see the before and after is very satisfying.

Thank you for all the kind words.


Chris

Chris, that is an astonishing transformation. I would not have believed it possible without seeing the before and after pics with my own eyes.

But what do you mean by the smell of chicken #*%@ emanating from the wood? Was this gun propped in the corner of a chicken coop for decades for fox control purposes?

This isn't the first gun shown here to come out of a chicken coop. Why did all of the nice ones end up in chicken coops?
