Default 44-40 Octagon Stub Project

Iíím just about finished with an octagon barrel 44-40 build. It started with a Deluxe Topper Jr 198 20 ga. The nickel receiver was pretty jacked up so I sanded it and Cerakoted it Armor Black. The barrel is a Green Mountain 44-40 octagon that i turned down and epoxied into the stub then installed 4 pins to lock it in place. Standard pallet wood stock sanded , stained and poly finish. I added the Winchester carbine sight and Williams white bead front. I havenít shot it yet but Iíve had great luck with Green Mountain barrels.

No, I had to cut the chamber but with a rental from 4D it was pretty easy. Thank you!
