Default Got a package from Chambers today!

After 3 long months of waiting I've finally received my package from Chambers! This one is a York in 40 cal, so time to get started. My wife said, "so I guess I won't see you for a couple months"...

Should be fun!!!

I should also add that I just noticed that they knocked $100 off of the wood upgrade due to the long wait for the stock to be milled. It is a pleasure doing business with Chamber's and I enjoyed chatting with Barbie... Highly recommend them, again!

Perfect time of year to get it. Way too nasty outside (here at least) to do much shooting. Have fun and post up a pic when you get it done!

I hear ya, dumped about 6 inches with freezing rain as desert and then pile on 35 mph and a low of 6 tonight.... Perfect day to get it started! Got the barrel channel scraped and had to move the barrel back a bit, coming along. This is too much fun...

Holy cow this is some hard wood!!! My first gun had similar grade of wood with figure throughout, but this chunk is by far harder than that. Got some hours into it this last weekend, so got the barrel channel scraped, tang inlet and underlugs placed.

From the picture, that buttstock is going to be a beautiful piece of wood.

How about pictures as you progress, I'm too inept to build a kit but really love to watch others do it.

That figure carries all the way through the stock, I wet it to show figure, but the forend dried before the picture so doesn't show well.

I will do that. So far I have inlet the barrel/tang and have the lock nearly inlet as well.

That fiddleback maple can be very hard. It truly is pretty though.

When your in the woods putting meat in the pot and the game isn't cooperating you won't get bored. You can always just sit there and admire your gun.

You are exactly right. He'll never get tired of looking at it.

That is the truth, I am using my first as reference and still am mesmerized by the figure!

Here are a few pics of progress, it's going pretty smooth so far. Only issue so far is one of my barrel tab pin holes went in crooked... Luckily you can't see both sides at once!!!
