Leman style rifle built from parts

I built this .50 cal. from a collection of parts I picked up over the years. It started with a CVA kit I found at a hardware store (parts missing) on clearance for $25. A bargain just for the barrel. It has a Siler Mountain Lock, iron hardware, and a curly maple Leman style stock. I once had a T/C Hawken and found this CVA barrel to be just as accurate.

Thanks for the compliments. I like this style gun a lot, fancy wood and simple browned iron parts. I will post a few pictures of long rifles I have built over the years when I have time.
