Installing the Trigger Guard: 

The trigger guard was inletted into the stock. First I inletted the front of the guard into the stock. I located the center line of the stock and then aligned the guard with this line. I drilled a 1/16" hole into the guard where I wanted the screw location. Then with the guard in place, I used this hole in the guard as a pilot hole to drill a 1/16" hole into the stock.  The hole in the guard was then enlarged for the passage of a #6 screw.  The guard was installed onto the stock with the screw. Using a knife, I traced around the tang of the guard. Removed the guard and deepened the cut lines. Then I "V" cut along these lines. Using a grooving tool I removed  the wood inside of these lines. Using my 1/4" wood chisel, I removed the remainder of the wood to seat the guard into the stock.
