Ill check out the dixi gun works... thanks for the lead. Oh and I do have the Lock, stock, and barrel....
Thanks for the help guys,
An under rib is a squarish piece of metal running under the barrels down to the stock. It basically keeps the ramrod away from the barrels making it easier to access. Those recesses should be cut all the way thru and have brass plates over the holes for the barrel keys that hold the barrel to the stock. The dove tails should have the tenon the keys go through.
