This custom built Mauser Rifle chambered in 7MM Remington Magnum features exhibition grade American tiger striped black walnut wood with rosewood tip and cap. This unique rifle is adorned with hand carved scrolls and fish scales. The Remington Magnum is custom fit in the hand-made walnut wood box. The front of the box contains a hand carved elk scene in the center and bird’s eye maple panels on the left and right. This package is a one-of-a-kind and was built exclusively for the R.M.E.F Red Rose chapter as a donation to help wildlife habitat.

Wonderful work but would anyone ever dare take it into the field?
I felt bad the first time I dinged the walnut stock on my .300 Weatherby.
I tried to refinish the stock and I don’t know what Weatherby put on it but it was so tough no solvent/stripper I could find would touch it. I had to scrape and sand it off.

Beautiful work.

LesB, My theory is when I have a new rifle or what ever, the sooner there is a small beauty mark the sooner I don’t have to worry about it any more! :-)

That is amazing. I only dream of doing work like that. Or having the patience to do it.
