I think that is Greg Martin talking to Tom Rowe.

Not unless we are talking about two different Greg Martin, which is quite possible, but not likely.

Bob, it looks like Randy Wright talking to Tom.  (to me at least)
RSW on the forum.

Regards,
Joe

Joe, I donít think it Randy.   

And I donít think Tom knew him either.   

This guy did some fabulous gunsmithing work on a couple Mausers he showed us.

That was Dave Wilson talking to Mr. Rowe, and yes his work is exemplary.  Looking at some of his builds puts me in the catagory of a hack or a piker.   
If you have access to the Guild's magazine, Dave has at least one that made their centerfold, there's a few pics of his work on the Guild website...
Like a few others I know, he's retired from the mold and die industry and this hobby keeps him occupied.

Greg, I felt the same when looking at the work he did on those Mausers.   

I donít have the magazine but will look at the website.  Thanks

Tom Rowe pointed out this palm rest on a Ballard that was on the Amoskeag table I believe.  Wish I could remember all the details, maybe Tom will jump in and tell the story on it.

Here's another Palm rest.  The design of this is really interesting.  They really did some wonderful machining back in the day!  Maybe Tony will  tell the story on it.  I can't remember everything and the stories on all I saw at this show, but I know what I like when I see it, and try to get some pictures.

This Palm Rest and the one in my previous post may need to be replicated on some future gun build.

Ballards may be weaker,

The first palm rest looks like a Schoyen to me Bob. Not sure who made the 2nd one?

the second one is on a hepburn #3 schuetzen  commonly called the walker hepburn. very few of these were ever made and fitted to the guns. they are way overdone like a lot of stuff from this time. they are very nice to shoot with. the one bob shows is on one of my walkers i found several years after i got the gun and struggled putting on the gun.i was talking with joe ruth more than once about putting it on and he finally said shut up and put it on. i miss joe and his knowledge.    tony<><
