A quality project begins with selecting the finest U.S. hide available!!! This cuff is custom fit to the stock of a Marlin .22 Autoloader. Rather than using loops for .22 cartridges, I made 2 individual magazine wells (wet formed) on the shooters dominant side. A solid piece of leather is used over the cuff for the mag wells as well as a padded cheek riser and everything is of course hand stitched! The color is custom, and though it appears redish here from a fresh coat of oil, it will dry to a mellow tan I'm calling auburn/honey. The Marlin wouldnt be complete with out a matching sling, so its accompanied by a custom M1907 too! The cuff is a hint of things to come, as I get into the concealed carry holsters!!!

Nice! Really Nice!

Silly question...do you sew with a machine or by hand? :| I am thinking by hand would be too difficult, but I really have no idea.

Yep, ALL by hand. In fact, its saddle stitched which is running 2 needles at a time. I lay out how I want it stitched, then punch all the holes first with a hammer and prong chisel, then the pattern has to be transfered to the base layer of leather, and punched again. Then a piece of sinew about 6 to 8 feet long with a needle on each end. I pass both needles through each hole so the one solid piece of lacing intersects over and over again. With each pass, I pull the lacing tight, and I mean TIGHT! I dont use a stitching palm or thimbles, I push the needles through with my fingertips.

It takes longer than using a machine and I have cuts all across my fingers where the lacing cuts in, but its sooooo beautiful, I love the look it creates! And hand stitching is kinda like meditating. Totally worth it for me!!!

:shock: Well, I hope it is a compliment when I say that your stitching looks like a big machine did them!
