The Glaser and Kess arms both have the checkering pattern I associate with Mews even as basically an outsider to his work.

Hello 375whelenIMP,
Thanks for the reply.

You have a good eye. Fortunately Leonard marked his work; in the barrel channel if he made the complete stock from scratch, or under the butt plate, if he added the checkering to a factory stock or just checkered the stock for another stock maker.

I like the article you posted, but its too small to read. Can you post an enlarged image?

Hellorelics6165,
Thanks for the reply.

Yes, I have both of Michael's books, but not many examples of Linden's work.

If you do not already have it, pick up Kennedy's checkering and carving book. Lots of examples of not only Lindens, but many other period makers work in it.

The Springfield 06 and the 1922 Hornet pictured in it are in my collection. If you do some digging there should be a post on this forum with some pictures of the Hornet.

Hello gasgunner,
Thanks for the reply.

I have several copies of Kennedy's book. A couple are signed by Leonard Mews. He was a friend and member of 2 of my clubs here in Wisconsin.

It might be more readable if you are able to zoom in.

Hello 375whelenIMP,
Thanks for the reply.

Yes, thank you, that's much better. Can you post the link to page 26 column 1 where the article continues?

I am still looking to add a Mews rifle to my collection. I think he had a unique ability to incorporate some of the features of the "California" style that was becoming popular at the time, without the rifle becoming gaudy or loosing the functionality of the classic style.

Hello gasgunner,
Thanks for the reply.

Leonard's first "big time" career began in Hollywood California working for Roy Weatherby. From Roy's book;
