    At the Longthorne website, there are a number of reviews and photos to be see - http://www.longthorneguns.com/gunroom/

    I'm not sure I would have chosen "arrogant" as the descriptive word for the wood fit on the gun pictured above, but if one looks closely one can see an obvious gap.

    In other photos, I actually saw more proud wood than ill-fitting wood. However, whilst proud wood is often looked down upon here in the States, it's not considered the same in the UK or on the Continent. A matter of taste.

    I did see at least one other instance of a gap. Given the background of the principals in this fairly new business, this surprises me. I suspect this shortcoming will soon be eliminated as it is brought to their attention.

    Overall, a good looking gun, for the care that goes into it, not overpriced in its market - just one man's opinion.

    Longthorne wood to metal appears ok to me, if were one mine.....I would hope to soon have several different scratches in the wood which would be wider and deeper than any fit issue.

    Looking at each offered grade, I would only note that each is waaay to shiny for my tastes.
    Do not forget pumpkin!

    Dr Duk,
    Looks like a war zone injury, hope you heal up quick.

    The surgeon sure did pull those sutures tight! Should have had the intern do the needle work. They tend to do a better job so as to impress the surgeon. ;~)

    Walked 2 miles today! Took my old GSP (almost 14) with me.
    We are both pretty slow! Happy to be a little mobile! Lost 7 lbs last week, still along way to go!
