Selling a shotgun converted to DR
      #317136 - 07/06/18 11:12 AM

Several years ago I built a .470 dr from a CZ Bobwite 12 Guage. A gunsmith threaded and joined the barrels to the mono block and he welded and fit the extractor so I basically just regulated and finished it. I have a couple hundred rounds through it and it still locks up tight. The smith and I proofed it with heavy loads but never sent it over seas to proof. Any legal or moral concerns with me selling it now?

With full disclosure you should rest easy.

Well I signed up for photobucket but when I try to log in I get routed to a bogus site. Hate computers.... I can paste a link to my guns international ad if it is ok by the rules.

I've got to say, that's one heck of a veneer job! Looks beautiful.

Thanks. I donít have a vacuum press but with a tire tube, old rags, and Saran Wrap I managed to get tight even pressure. Cutting and piecing was fun too. I sure hope that the original piece of lumber to make that veneer was too thin to make a real stock! 😔

homemadedr,
Very nice rifle.

In one of the photos, there appears to be a hole in the center of the rear lens cap of the telescopic sight. Can you tell me the function of that hole?
