Westley Richards LOP Adjustment

This was a new Westley Richards Hand-Detachable in 28 gauge with pull length that was a bit long for the owner.  The original butt was checkered and he wanted the finished product to look original.
It was cut to the desired length and then I shaped the contours of the face of the butt to correspond to the original configuration, then I checkered it at 24 lines per inch (in the factory pattern) and finished the exposed wood to match the rest of the stock.
