If you do the whole carved wilderness mural in the stock, you absolutely HAVE to get a leather padded sling with similar design work, including your name.

Bushmaster,

As for the ivory grip cap, it doesn't really work for me, but remember: only have to please yourself. If you like it, great.

Take care!

It does work for me, either.

Tea is not staining it dark enough.

I have read that potassium permanganate dissolves purple but stains ivory brown.

Thank you for the staining info.

The white ivory does NOT work for me

I wish I had pictures of it to post. I fear my description above does not do justice to the sheer magnificence of this concept and its execution...

I have used it on moose antlers. Never on ivory but it makes a nice walnut color on bone.
