I'm certainly gonna build another one but I gotta make sure the folks are taken care of first.
I think I may go a full custom the next go around , I sure like the way the Bat and Nesika actions feel and I'm kinda tired of looking at and working on everybody elses. I've also gotten my paws a on a couple Surgen actions and they are also very nice.

Very nice James.

I like the way you shaped the rear tang area, I just may have to copy off you on my next stock.

Good luck to Mr. Watters, and if the deal falls through call me.
