    That stock took a while because it was one of the first I tried, and I wasn't keeping track of time, at a guess 20 hours with finishing. I've refinished it since that pic using a polishing technique that provides a very smooth finish while filling the pores in the wood.

    The handguard was remarkably fast, once I figured out how to do it... slots were cut on a milling machine in a square blank (barrel channel cut first), then cut the bits that go in the metal caps and finally sliced off the "facets" on a table saw, just kind of eyeballing the angles. Maybe 8 hours total.

    That grip was probably the 4th one I ever made, so it too took a while. I think grips probably took me around 4 hours back when I made that one (they are A LOT faster now )

    The shield is a very nice touch for that set up. What I like the most about the way you have that one set up is the crank fire.

    the shield is a really nice piece on that 1919!

    between that & the crank ... no one is gonna take over your living room.
