That rocks, Jeff.

When the last deer disappears into the morning mist,
When the last elk vanishes from the hills,
When the last buffalo falls on the plains,
I will hunt mice for I am a hunter and I must have my freedom.

When you said poured pewter, does that mean that the pbolster was poured "in place"?

Great work as always

Yes, liquid pewter was poured around a collar that filled the filed out space.
