Marshall Hunting Rifle:  Grade 6 Maple stock; all steel furniture; Jaeger Lock; double-set triggers; .62 Caliber barrel (1/72 twist)   

 

Here is the finished rifle. My friend wanted it in the white and will finish staining the stock and browning the steel.

This gun started out basically as a blank. The rifle is partially inlet with the tang still pending to be inlet. The ramrod channel is already inlet and drilled. Here is a photo of the parts laid out in the beginning.
