From a pile of parts a Southern Mountain rifle in 54 caliber will come to life and take to the woods the Saturday before thanksgiving

A little more progress to report
Although LongShanks is based on a southern mountain style and is fitted with steel hardware there are a few extras being added, here are a couple of the inlays that are installed. there will be more and the barrel, buttplate, trigger guard, side plate and toe plate will soon leave for a trip to the engraver for some mild scroll engraving
As always I'm interested in comments and opinions
