Here is an image of the pattern for the stock:
This was particularly difficult due to the need to create both the pattern and the tools needed to shape this complex piece.
The next step is to file the stock smooth and begin the engraving. The engraving is laid out with a pencil or a scribe, and then is engraved into the steel. It is a precise job that requires patience and skill. It will take most of the Saturdays of 2010 to finish the engraving and the final fitting of the pistol.
