Finally finished these after trying to figure out a fireing system that would work with a full stock. So I came up with this design after trying mock ups of other systems and finding out that every thing would be too long and wind up into the wrist which I did not want because I figured it would weaken the stock. Rifle is a 54 cal with a one in 28 twist Green Mountain Barrel. SHot gun is a 12 guage with removable chokes and takes Remington chokes. Both Barrels were for a Knight Model 86 switchbarrel sytem that Knight discontinued. I got the barrels for 30 bucks a pop figuring I could get a reciever from Knight but they did not have any more and did not plan to make any either so I decided the easiest way to make it go bang would be a underhammer system. Well that was not as easy as I thought either after finding out most underhammers have their own recievers and are not made into full stocks. Well I figured out how to do it anyway. They may not be conventional looking but they do work and the trigger pull on both are not bad. Total cost into each gun is right around 50 bucks. Buttplates were made from sheet brass that some one gave me. Trigger guards were scrap sheet brass that I paid a buck for. the peep sight on the rifle cost me a buck at a rummage sale. Front sight is fiberoptic. Hole in the side of the gun with the brass plate is to access the nipple.

It has taken a while to figure things out and get every thing together and yea they are one of a kind but hey they work so that to me is what counts. They may not be the most prettiest in the world, but I am happy with them as I took some barrels that could not be used unless you had the Knight rifle they were made for and made something usefull out of them. I also have two usable guns for little cash outlay. Jim
