Gunsmithing - How to Head Up the Buttstock on a Sidelock Double

In this GunTec presentation Larry Potterfield, Founder and CEO of MidwayUSA, demonstrates the process for heading up the buttstock on a Parker Brothers sidelock double gun.

Next, the tang of the receiver is inletted into the stock using inletting black and a series of chisels.
