Contemporary Gun 3
This contemporary Hawken-style rifle was built for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.  Nearly 23 feet of sterling silver wire inlay was used to establish the theme of the rifle.  The highly figured piece of curly maple was stained dark to better accentuate the silver wire inlay.  The R.M.E.F. logo was scrimshawed into the bone and inlayed into the cheekpiece.  The trigger guard was pierced completely through and engraved to display a bugleing bull elk.
