seems rather shoddy to trot out the famous name of manton to promote a new product...but then, this aint the first time its been done..

here is link about the real manton...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Manton

and then there are the more prolific belgian made mantons...

Paul;

That is beautiful gun building work. Thank you for sharing it with us.

The stock blank is magnificent and it will be a standout when completed. Who is going to engrave the gun and what engraving style?

Please keep us posted on the progress.

Kindest Regards;

Stephen Howell

If someone owns the name they can do what they want without asking you edd permission this looks like a great effort can't wait to see the finished gun
