    i just finished my latest project. I cleaned up and restored a Remington Model 16. Except now I need a new project. Any ideas on what to pick up next? I don't like to drop a ton of cash, so something readily available would be great. Let me know if you guys have any ideas!

    Interested in black powder??

    You can build a fine looking m/l rifle from Track of the Wolf; TVM; DGW; or many others.

    Draco SBR. Maybe not your style but there are all kinds of possibilities. Below are just a few ideas.
