Stan,

Thank you, that explains very clearly what the process is achieving and how such dramatic results occur.

Claudio has talents that people would die to have! And your documentary and pics are superb.

This whole string is both enjoyable and educational!

Seeing how Claudio or Dewey expertly fix problems is very enlightening. Too often we see half-ass repairs or worse passed off as the proper way to fix things just because they are faster, easier and cheaper.

The difference being Claudio seems to be a genuinely nice gentleman, whereas Dewey can be pissed off just by telling him "good morning". But wow, does he ever know gun work.

He doesn't just seem to be John, he really is. Always a pleasure to visit his shop.

Great thread Canvasback! I'm looking forward to the next installment. Similar to your Daly, Dewey Vicknair recently repaired the forend wood on my Daly. He did a tremendous job fixing the repairs of a gunsmith without his (or Claudio's) talents. Link -

Very nice Ken. Thanks for the link. I just don’t get tired of seeing the work of these craftsmen. They are both masterful!

If we went back to the previous page and looked at the original listing for this gun, we can see the tired old pad on the buttstock. Time for something fresh. So, after careful consideration that took all of a couple minutes, the decision was made to do a leather covered pad. We don't have much in the way of in-process photos but here are a few of the finished pad.

It’s nice to see a leather covered pad flush to the stock sides.
The pad needed to be ground smaller than the butt by the anticipated final thickness of the leather.
Well done Claudio!
