Brian, did you square off or flatten the damaged surface before making the repair? Nice job.

Beautiful work -- even upon close inspection it's almost impossible to see. In fact I'm not sure I can tell except for a very slight change in the grain pattern which may not even be due to the repair. This brings up a philosophical question for collectors: Is it possible for a repair to be done too good?

Brian, great job on the forend tip! Dennis has done quite a bit of work for me over the years. Always top drawer! Keep his number handy. A great mentor with decades of experience under his belt.
All the best,
Buddy
