Finished at last. I couldn't get the different woods to match, however. Ended up taking the pieces to a local lady who does staining, and antique restorations. It was worth it. The end result is a Longbranch No4 Mk 1 Scout Rifle. 18" barrel with the fore wood I shortened, and reshaped. The Leupold FX II 2.5x28 Scout Scope sits on a custom mount made by my gunsmith. It has quick release rings. It sits low enough that the peep sight is in the way. Me not being able to see far without magnification anyhow... I removed the 600 yds part. Now I can use the scope without obstruction. Should I need to remove it and use the 300 yd peep as back up, I can just flip it up, and I'm in business. The buttstock is a Boyd's because I wanted the turn down "pistil grip" style as it's much easier on my wrist. I did have to trim the brass butt plate as the Boyd's stock is a bit thinner. I found a WWII dated sling online. Couldn't get very good photos outside. The sun was so bright on the snow, it was playing hell with my phone.
