    My leather mate just finished these and showed up with them the other day......some of you may not get into this shit,but from the standpoint of leather work and artistry they are nothing short of superb.They can both be lengthened and shortened depending on barrel length.Will hold various scope lengths and sizes,the interior has been lined with kiwi sheepskin I bought back a couple of years ago for him...the handles are elk antler and supposed to represent a kiwi bird,I thought he did a great job ...comments???

    Wow they look really nice. Top level craftsmanship. Ya can't go past a man and his loved trade. What are they worth out of interest, if ya don't mind saying.

    Mate ... I don’t mind at all... he’s retired,he’s an ol school craftsman..he has many talents... just to look at his hands,you can tell he’s no pussy.... I paid him $1000 for each.... it’s really hard to put a price on something like this,but those who know anything of the trade and the man hours to produce something like these will tell you they are worth every penny..... then again,they are only worth what I was willing to pay.....he is a good basstard,a the the price... very fair

    Stunning.

    If you left them to me in your will I'd feel obliged to wear tweed and smoke a curved briar pipe while I admired them through my monocle.

    The love gone into them is worth a lot more than what you paid, agree, really transport you back to an old world.

    If the leather was darker they would fit in well in you're 'steampunk' world. Some real craftsmanship there.

    Excellent work, love the ornamental barbed wire !!
    In a civilized and cultivated country, wild animals only continue to exist at all when conserved by the sportsman. The excellent people who protest against all hunting, and consider sportsmen as enemies of wildlife are wholly ignorant of the fact that in reality the genuine sportsman is by all odds the most important factor in keeping wild creatures from total extinction.
