Winchester '07

Here I'll detail making a new front sling eye for a Winchester 1907 Deluxe rifle.  The original went AWOL, which isn't that surprising considering the factory's method of attachment to the forend cap.
Externally, the new part is identical to the original but my attachment method uses an internal nut, contoured to fit the inside of the forend cap.  A small clearance cut is necessary in the forend wood to accommodate it but it's internal and completely hidden when the rifle is assembled.
