Absolutely georgous. Congrats on a very nice new gun.

I get totally lost and mesmerized in the beauty of wood grain whether it is in a gun stock, an antique RR dash, or about anything else with this quality of wood work.

Haven't had a chance to shoot one yet - 12 or 20? How does their rounded action feel in your hand? (That's one of the MAIN things I like about my SxS - that rounded action just fits in the palm of your hand

Looks like the dove have a reason to be afraid in your area!

Very nice

That's nice walnut TKM, finished to enhance the beauty of the grain

i think it will make a fine bunny gun. it will be hard to carry it into the thick stuff. I have a browning ultralite feather 20 and this gun feels way better n the hand.
