Ongoing Remington Rolling Block project part 3

It’s been some time since I had the chance to work on this old shop project.  The Rolling Block is one of a couple of shop projects that gets worked on in between customer jobs.  So after all this time I decided that maybe I need to get into it and get some work done on it finally.

I pick up from where I left off last time by starting on the barrel work. Here I’m getting around to reaming out the blank and cutting the chamber. The caliber I finally chose is .50-110 Winchester because of easy to obtain brass casings.

Now the straight tapered octagon barrel has been fitted to the rolling block receiver.

So now I’ll turn my attention back to the stocks I’d carved before. I fitted a brass Schuetzen style butt plate to the stock. This is the easiest type to fit since it’s a straight cut. But to add a little “bling”, I decided to inlay some brass wire into the wood.

Here’s the first wire inlay started. You’ll notice the heart shaped inlay is placed where I’d like to put it next.

This is tedious work, but it’ll be worth it in the end. This will be a nice rifle project. I’m thinking black powder silhouette target shooting. Next blog will detail a bit more of the wi inlay work.
