Craft Gunmaking, No compromises, No corners cut, EVER

Friday, October 4, 2019


It's been a while since I've posted anything because I've been inundated with repair work (A.K.A. "dirty dishes" work) but with a portion of that out of the way, the interesting stuff can resume.

The scratchbuilt 28 gauge detailed here: is is almost ready for stocking and then finishing.  Once I make the forend fastener and forend finial, I can begin with the stocking.  I found what, at the time, seemed like a nice blank but I think I'll save that for another project.  It's nice but not quite nice enough for this gun.  Rather than make multiple separate posts detailing the entire project, I'll simply add to the original post.  I think that this will make for a less confusing format as all of the information will be in one place.  Just click on the link and you will see the updated post. 

A couple more interesting custom Fox guns are in the works and will be posted so that you can follow along with those.  They are numbers 006 and 007.  Number 007 is an extensive cosmetic makeover but it's still mechanically a Fox.  Number 006 is something else entirely and the beginnings of that project will be posted presently.

  1. Dewey,

    I hadn't seen any Instagram posts from you in a while and was periodically checking your blog for activity. Glad to know it was because you were busy and not something else.
