Marv had a BB gun from when he was a boy. He started restoring it by sandblasting and painting the body and was going to start working on replacing the stock but wasn’t able to due to sudden health reasons. He provided me with a piece of Padauk to make the stock and the original to use as a guide. The body bears the many dents and dings from his childhood adventures so I carried that theme to the stock by hand shaping it so it wouldn’t be completely perfect.

I’m sure it is appreciated.
Very much. Thanks Tom!
Fascinating process! All the handwork seemed so appropriate to an old gun. Turned out great!
Nicely done Matt.
