This is another very relevant and widespread tick related disease that can and does affect thousands in the range of the Lone Star Tick. It’s no joke and can kill. My father contracted most likely from ticks on our land in northern VA and has had li

I would also cut off the extension and add a pad. I recently did this on a LC Smith Specialty grade 20 gauge with 32” barrels. It Looks so much nicer. It had a well fitted wood extension but still looked like a wart on such a nice gun. Found and pur

Well, The rifle is in hand. Its a James Macnaughton and it turns out to be a variation of a 577-500 No.2. Not sure if the "40" stamp makes any more sense now. Its got a 7-groove bore and near as I can measure its .506 - .507dia. That s

Ed, do you have any pics? I vaguely recall Mark Larson or his brother doing some interesting and original effects on stocks but I have no idea how to find ten year old pictures.

I like rubber recoil pads for how they protect the butt, not always for recoil reduction. For dove shooting, none is needed and a couple of my dove guns have checkered butts. But, for ducks, in blinds and boats and flooded timber, I like a recoil pa

Snipe are at least half the size of a female woodcock and have a grey/black coloration with a white belly. The tailfeathers have some brown near the tips. Woodcock are brownish with a buff/tan belly. No self respecting woodcock would be caught dead

I have had wood extensions checkered with the pad left on. A checkering line disguises the joint and any wood mismatch.

Are they usually found in groups (not physically together like quail but numerous birds in an area)?

One and done. They take pictures, collect the money and mail it to me a month later. they seem to get a fair price usually and they have proved to be honest so far.

Look for hummocky ground indicative of grazed seepage areas. They make a beeeek sound when they get up and then go into a zigzag flight that makes for tricky shooting. I think they taste a lot like woodcock.

I'd go with a lace on leather pad and forget about it. When you want to get rid of the gun, take it off and send it down the road and keep the pad for the next gun.

Like Replacement said above, I'd go with a 1/4" spacer and then a 3/4" pad. 1" of pad is a bit much visually.

Is the wooden butt checkered? I feel like that could be nice, especially if there is a staunch color difference between the two wood types. Or does the gun have a plate on the end of the extension?
