    Danny Caywood .32 Southern Mountain Rifle. Mike Rowe made the lock. Gun has a swamped barrel and a traditional outside coned vent hole. Stepped wrist on the stock. She weighs about 5.5 lbs and is light and lively.

    Oh Dear, Be still my beating heart. Thats pretty. How about some more pics?

    You do not realize how tempting it is to own a gun like that. I can resist anything but temptation.

    Thats really nice. How about more info on the builder?

    Wow. I'd love to see the detailed specs on that, esp. for the barrel. A light squirrel rifle along those lines has been on my mind for some time now.

    They just don't get any better than that. Congratulations on a fine acquisition.

    That's a beaut! :)
    A flinter that can stimulate anyone!
    Was the rear sight placed to accommodate you or is it the photo angle that makes it appear to be farther down the barrel?

    This one is breathtaking, Giz - +1 on the request for more pix. :)

    And now you've got me tearing around the Caywood Arms site - wow.

    Downright SEX-AY!

    That is truly a work of art. And the fact that it is FUNCTIONAL art is just icing on the cake.
