New calls I am shipping to MI

Postby firelt72 » January 10th, 2011, 1:23 pm

Sending these to Michigan this week. The first is a cocobolo and matching striker and then a walnut and matching striker. The cocobolo is a slate over glass and the walnut is smoked glass over glass. Thanks for looking.

If it is bleeding or on fire I can usually fix it; Other than that we might be in trouble....

Beautiful calls, Eric. I've never heard what smoked glass sounds like but the call sure looks nice. I really like the cocobolo pot too. The next call I get made (or make myself) will be cocobolo!!

Brian the smoked glass sounds like regular glass, just has that bronzed look to it.

Nice calls, I really like how you got the brass on the end of the strikers. Thats the first time I've seen that done.

KYG- I turned the striker handle to where it would fit on the end of the 3 1/2 shell. I then removed the inside portion of the primer so it wouldn't "bang" it it was dropped or struck just perfect and then epoxied it in place. I then took the suede leather strip and wrapped it.

I second the look of the shot shell on the end of the striker--nice touch!
