ngashooter will become famous soon enough
After a forum member posted a #1 converted to a shotgun, I realized New England Custom Guns can (and will) do anything the client will pay for. They specialize in fine shotguns, but single-shot rifles are right up their alley. Quality appears to be top notch. I have seen their builds featured in various gun magazines.

Mark Penrod has rebarreled four for me. Excellent metal and trigger work.

Well, the parent/donor gun is in the house. I picked up a lightly used re-barreled #1 to make my build off of.

The gun currently carries a Hart (what seems to be by measurements a Ruger Varmint profile) 22-250 barrel with a break. I will be changing that out to a Lilja 17 Fireball barrel with a Ruger Varmint profile.

The gun has already had some trigger work done and a free floated barrel along with one of those EBACO fore arm hanger gadgets.

Now I am shopping for a scope for it.

It will be a while before this is done but I am excited....... Dangerous for an old guy. LOL
