Days before my move to Oklahoma I finished this .375 H&H rifle and sent it off to a very dear client. Basically, my model English Express with a GMA action and a Schmidt & Bender scope. The scope mount is my own design. It is a quick release system that releases the locking levers with a quarter turn. I really love this piece of Turkish walnut. The natural color is very pretty, and it has such a great 3D look to it. A wood dealer I know would refer to this as a “Reto blank”.
After working in the trade since 1988, I think I’m still evolving as a craftsman. I’m hoping to push and refine my abilities further in the new shop. A new environment offers new influences from a different landscape and a different culture. The desire to please the customer is what drives me and with each gun I try to offer the best work I can do. I truly hope that my clients are aware just how much I appreciate them and what a blessing it is to have a full order book.

I wish you all a happy, prosperous and blessed 2022!
