I am 55 . Retired machinist. Hobby gunsmith that builds an occasional rifle from barstock. Presently finishing a muzzleloader and a Winchester 1873 and doing early work of building a Borchardt in .45-90 and a Winchester lowwall in .17HM2... I seldom actually finish one..Been more than a year since I finished the last one..Thinking I will get out and try some hunting and or target shooting to give me reason to finish my projects....Primarily I just enjoy working in my home workshop..Anybody else here enjoy building their own? Heres a view of Highwall I built in .38-55 caliber.
