    I've followed this post with a lot of interest and not a little envy.
    It is a beautiful rifle JC.

    I like the browned receiver - sets off the rest of the piece quite nicely.

    Thanks guys. The receiver color is actually a plum rather than brown. It was not planned, but is one of the vagaries of dip bluing. It is probably a result of something in the casting alloy. I am not real happy with it, and might be looking to have it redone by someone with more experience in hot bluing. The rest of the job turned out nicely.
