    Default Amazing damascus .22 hornet double rifle build

    The blue/walnut thread reminded me of a thread on another forum showing some exhibition grade English walnut that has incredible character to it.

    This thread shows basically a step-by-step on building this great little double. This guy is a true craftsman. He is updating the progress as it goes, so I've been checking in for the latest for a bit now...

    This shows the meticulous detail that goes into a fine double rifle. Great link and I can truly say...........now I understand why a high quality double cost what it does. Amazing amount of work involved.

    That's gonna really be something when its finished. The wood looks to have some potential as well. I hope we can see it when its done.

    And to relies that all was done by hand a 150 years ago.Just hammer and file for the whole deal. Its also easy to see why Whitworth fluid steel did away with Damascus a labor of love
