I made this stock for a 7×57 Mauser to use to shoot hi-power silhouettes. That is why I carved a ram target on it. The stock is very similar to The Pig Gun .22 rim-fire stock. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/31591 It is walnut. The barreled action is long gone. It didn’t work out very well. I put it back in the original stock and sold it.
The other figure is from Kentucky rifles of the Revolutionary War period. At first it was thought to be an Indian figure. It is a signature marking for the Sons of Liberty. A few simple chisel strokes and it is done.
