    It does have something of the Modern Art Masterpiece about it. . .

    I'm really curious about the second bolt handle.

    Looks like the 'Custom Gunsmith' cut up the wood stock and made a cast mold of it. He MAY have used a file on it in places..... :tooth:

    When I was a welder, we had a saying around the shop when we would see something home built and hideous:

    "I made it m'self!"

    I said that when I saw that rifle.

    It is pretty interesting, though.

    Actually it looks like a chunk of aluminum that had been shaped with a wood rasp.

    Yeah looks like aluminum to me.
  • Gene LGene L Senior Member Posts: 10,305 Senior Member
    I wonder what caliber that is. Looks kinda like a pistol round, or maybe a .30 carbine?

    It's a Crapcano!!

    That's not a second bolt handle, it's the safety.

    Well, it does seem to have a fold down mono pod forearm. That's all I got.
