I has some curly maple left over from another project, so I decided to refit an old Topper that I had on hand.
I cut the barrel to 18" and fit the furniture with a 4" grinder, hand files, and a scraper.
The nose cap is poured silver.

I'm a bit challenged posting multiple pictures with a mobile device, so hopefully this isn't too annoying for the moderators. (Yeah it did bother me, so I flipped it! TS)

......hahaha, not yet!
Yea, I'm expecting a special "tattoo".
I've received rifled barrel inserts in hand gun calibers from .22 LR to 44Mag, as well as .410, and 20 gauge.
I'm currently making a leather satchel to hold those along with the miscellaneous cartridges.

Thank you all for the compliments.

I did a bit of metal carving on the nose cap this morning.

I finished the hand sewn bag for the gun.
The bag is cow hide with forged rings and buckle.
It holds the barrel inserts and miscellaneous ammunition.
I'm going to purchase shotgun full brass hulls and add a vintage hand reload kit in the bottom of the bag.
