Very, very nice. That's some outstanding wood :mrgreen:

When you have a chance, put a little grease under all the metal...buttplate, screws, under barrel, etc....I started to see some rust on my Shiloh after awhile after no exposure to elements. :shock:
(I'm partial to Fluid Film grease....YMMV)

Unless I missed it, what caliber???? Great looking piece.
there is no such thing as a miss if you still have ammo

It is 45-70, I took it out in the snow and cold and sighted it in on rocks and such. I got it to Minute of Antelope, now I go hunting with it...

While I'm not disagreeing with you , if it were mine I'd shoot the heck out of it .

I think I like the looks of the 1877 action more then the others . Certainly more then the 1875 or 1878 . Not that there's anything wrong with either of them just a personal preference .

Beautiful gun! But we need more details! What barrel length and weight? Brand of barrel? Sights? etc.....

I'm not against anyone shooting a beautiful Gun like that. To Me it's a work of art, Wood and steel. Stunning.
