Here is a little update on this Repro A-1 Special project in its current state.

I have stocked the gun and finished the checkering on it. Checkering is 24 lpi and 28 lpi on the cheeks. It is now ready for Engraving. I chose a lighter colored piece of circassian for the gun as it was the look I was wanting to go for. I wanted to go a little over the top on the checkering for this one. It is loosely based on the second Invincible. For anyone interested in taking a closer look at the gun, it will be shown at the NE SxS.

With an Invincible checkering pattern! Incredible work Brian!!

That round knob grip is special!

Please tell us about the lock screw on the tang screw Brian.
When you first showed it there was no explanation. I saw a AAHE dedicated live pigeon gun on Steve Barnett's table at Ernie's 4 or 5 years ago with that lock screw. It would be the ideal thing on a single trigger gun to prevent anyone overtightening it and throwing off the way the single trigger needs to work properly... but you converted this gun to double triggers.

Just looking at this design makes my index finger stiff and my eyes squint. Brian, I will bet you'll get ask 100 times how long it took to complete. A lot of dulled cutters lead to being able to pull this together, years and years. Great job!

Not too long really. Done over the course of a week. No dulled cutters.

You saw it at the southern, uncheckered. Now it is checkered.
