congrats Doc! I think that trapdoor has a lot of possibilities and looks like you can make it into a good shooter. You even got the rear sight and the barrel hasn't been whacked off. If you're looking to restore it - check with Lodgewood - they may have or can steer you in the right direction of an original fore stock section that you could splice under the lower barrel band. Or, you could just leave it the way it is. I hope you'll keep us posted on what you do with it along with photos. We always enjoy your "projects" greatly!
