Repair & Restoration of leather rifle case

Recommended Posts

Guest Charlie

I have an old leather rifle case that has been in the family for generations. It is in need of repair and restoration so I am looking for an individual willing and able to make this case functional again while maintaining as many original pieces and using as many traditional techniques as possible.  Not sure whether this helps but I am more interested in the historical aspect of this piece than being able to use it while hunting.  The rifle that came with case is a 405 Winchester. 
V/R,

Charlie
