This time it isn't log stacking but a gunsmith's handiwork and very lovely it is too.
The little Zoli .410 had a wooden cheek pad added to the stock when we bought it, it was probably put there for a youngster, but the wooden pad made the gun shoot high and left so down to Simpsons in Newmarket it went and then onwards to their gunsmith.
Opening the gunslip for a first view of his work was a real treat; the gunsmith had replaced the walnut pad to flush it up with the original stock and then had set about re-oiling the walnut. Although it was never going to be a perfect match with the existing wood the little Zoli .410 side-by-side looks really smart. All-in-all a splendid job.
Rats and vermin beware.
