    @vicwait - would you mind posting a pic of the miniature with something for scale?

    What parts can move? Can the bolt cycle?

    I have almost completed a case with accessories for the half scale miniature Musgrave rifle, including a new leather sling and one half scale dummy .308 Winchester round. When complete I will post a picture.
    To answer another question, there are no moving parts inside. The bolt retracts a short distance (10-15mm) using the lever and the safety lever moves but nothing else. Trigger does not move either.

    OK, at last. Apart from the edging of the leather sling, the miniature Musgrave rifle has now been cased with made up accessories. I'm afraid I am not forking out R400 to R500 for a small bottle of leather edge paint. I will have to find a way. Burnishing does not work with such thin supple leather, not for me anyway.

    Sweet, you asked for a measure so I have included a tape.
    The case was made for me out of red wood which has a very nice grain.

    An exquisite piece Vicwait.

    The cased rifle and accessories all complement each other.
