The 28 gauge shotgun is a small gauge that has always had a loyal following for hunting quail an other upland game.  They are becoming more popular in the shooting sport competitions and many shooter have a 28 gauge just for the ‘SUB GAUGE” competition at shoots all over the country.  Weatherby came out with a 28 gauge semi auto shotgun last year and uses beautiful Walnut for their stocks.  That is what I used for this custom carving.

 

Here is a little information about the Weatherby shotgun I used from the American Rifleman Magazine:  http://www.americanrifleman.org/articles/weatherby-sa08-deluxe-28-gauge

I wanted the Hand Carved scene that fit the shotgun that it was carved upon and decided to go with a bird dog and quail – a great combination on any shotgun.   I tried to make it a simple design with Basket Weave replacing the checkering and a partial border of Oak Lea.ves and Acorns added.   The scene is three quail busting out from under the dog’s nose as he holds point.   This is a scene that should get any bird hunter’s blood pumpin’.

I chose to keep the shape of the original checkering when I replaced it with basket weave because, with many manufacturers, that shape identifies the manufacturer and model of the firearm.  In this case, it was also a nice looking design.   I went with Basket Weave because it is a classic style and it also gives a good grip on a shotgun.

If this style of carving is something you would be interested in for your shotgun, Contact me.   I’ll help you with your own Family Heirloom.
