Drilled the barrel last night.
Had bought a bit/tap/ and liner as a package to be sure I had stuff that matches right.
Hole was drilled and then countersunk 90 degrees, tapped, then the liner was screwed in, the excess hacksawed off and the liner filed down flush.

Tonight I finished inletting the bolster, a thicker part of the lock plate by the pan. With that portion inletted, you can position the pan and lock plate because the plate will now lay flat. You want the flashhole to "half sunset" with the pan. In other words a line from the front edge of the pan to the rear edge passes through the flashhole location. In the pic, you can see I need to come up a bit.

Having a rifle available to "check on" has been a big help, lets me know where I'm at and where I'm trying to go with this lock mortise business.
I have learned that unless you are willing to work hard at keeping you chisels sharp, ash is not the wood to be using.
My chisel and sharpening skills are improving everyday

I built a car with white ash(36 Plymouth woody), but never a gun stock. That can be tough. And yes, SHARP tools are a must. Sharpening is an art I wish I could master, but alas......I usually get pretty close.

My shop is only about 100 feet away, but thats not within my range yet. I'd love to be working on this. Lock is positioned and ready to be inlet. Bought me a couple-threer chisels I thought might help things along.

Essentially I need to replicate this mortise in my stock. Helps a lot having an example to look at.

Can you use some scrap 2x material to practice?
I know...double the work and not the same kinda wood,
but might save hassles on the good stuff.

Have fun...notnew...

Certainly not a bad idea, and has been recommended by others as well.
I my wacky mind however, I simply don't have the patience for it. "God hates a coward" kinda thing.....
