    Enjoy.... just think about the craftsman who made this and the action this barrel must have seen....

    I have a new found friend who is a blacksmith/bladesmith in Bulgaria who had acquired this for his craft... he's getting into other endeavors and I got lucky...[winkthumb]

    I love old things... especially those that reflect an amazing amount of craftsmanship.... (even those that don't sometimes )
