Turned into a long work day and night. I'll take some more photos of blanks 1 & 3 and send them along later today when I get home. This was my first venture into buying blanks, and I knew I was taking a risk. I paid more than the starting pr

I saw that lot on EBay. For what you paid for it you did OK to possible very well. Everything will work, if you are looking at a through bolt stock job. Others are right about the grain structure in the wrist being a concern based on limited photos.

It is a fine late season load as well. Gotta love #5s for ducks or pheasants anytime, anywhere. they will work in a Giant Canada too, if in a pinch.

actually, without actually seeing the pattern placement, I think it is likely that #3 over rotates that grain and may well chip out on top behind the fences. I like #1 a lot and maybe more than #3. The blank in photo number 5 might be a sleeper onc

I've seen and owned a bunch of high walls in 30 US, but never heard of an original rifle with anything but a 30" # 3 barrel which makes for a ponderous load in the woods. At the same time Winchester made 1895's with short and long barrels that w

First thing I look for in a blank is how the grain runs through the wrist. #1 looks a bit iffy, #2 looks good except for what you might encounter at the butt end. #3 is definitely the best. The rest of the wood looks like an odd assortment that mi
