BGS model a

I finally got my BGS model a rifle finished. I had Dr. shock do the barrel conversion and the hot bluing. I had the furniture for a while but it finally found its permanent home.

No beer or toes here..... The white background was for Abominog, I was fortunate enough to get a photo opp in his book.

EXEMPLARY

Outstanding in Every Way!

That incredible AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA Grade furniture deserved the hot blue!

I bet in person she is even more stunning. What will be your final finish on the wood?

What is her name?

Great job to you and Dr. SHOCK.

Respectfully,

SR
