Hi guys, thanks for all the replies.

@EPJartisan: By the way, since you have access to a real gunsmith (!), could you ask him if he has a good recipe for an oil finish? I have some danish oil on hand, so that’s probably what I’m going to use to finish the rifle. I was thinking of using 50/50 danish and denaturated alcohol for the first coat, then use 100% danish oil for the other coats (4-5 in total). I’d really appreciate it!

@EPJartisan, knothead62: I will try to use a dowel as well. I hadn’t planned on using one (too much work honestly! and I’m not that well equiped to do it), but after watching Larry Potterfield from MidwayUSA on youtube install, shape and inlet a barrel channel in an ebony fore-end tip, he seemed to suggest it was a good idea to use one as well. Not sure how I’m going to do it though.
