    There's a lot going on in this update. It breaks down into three parts:

    First I'll show how to inlet barrel tennons into the stock on the Track of The Wolf Bucks County flintlock rifle kit.

    Then I'll show how to make a special tool to mark barrel pin holes on both sides of the stock. This tool really saved me a lot of angst, and I haven't seen another one like it...doesn't mean it's unique, but I haven't seen one.

    Finally, I'll use an R.E. Davis Center to Center drilling fixture on the drill press to drill the pin holes and secure the barrel to the stock.

    Getting the barrel pinned to the stock is always a big deal to me. This is the point where I start to feel like a bunch of parts is really turning into a rifle.
