You might want to consider where You will be using the scabbard before attaching the billets...
If not on a horse, then maybe on a motorcycle or an ATV?
If the scabbard is just to protect the gun when laying in the back of the car or standing in the guncart, then the placement isn't critical.
For dismounted service You could even make straps similar to knapsack straps or a combination rifle sling/scabbard carry sling.

I wonder if you bought one of these:

or similar, if the barrel and stock might be transplanted?  It would be nice if you could see one in person and eye it over well.

I have some Goex and caps squirreled away. Pyrodex as well,  which I seem to find in some of the stores.
Anybody having luck finding caps?
I may have to work on getting a flintlock.

Here is one Johm Saffran made for his Grandson,
 That same young man is a recently commissioned 2nd Lt in the Marine Corp.

If your relic were mine, I'd make the effort to wall hang it and put it up on display, just as DeaconKC suggests

Sure could  :)

I have two Spanish 1893 Bayonets, One I bought for my M1916 Spanish Mauser, then found a better one w/ a scabbard.
I've sense sold the M1916, and kept both, but I'll use one of the Bayonets in the SpanAm Display.
Your 03 could go in the WW1 or even early WW2 Displays.

The Mosin Nagant bayonet I bought from you, is already with a Mosin in the Korea Exhibit.  :)
The Leather Shop / Rifle Scabbards

Hello Gents, Can we start a thread on Rifle Scabbards. I am making my first one and the scabbard is pretty straight forward but I want to make sure I understand the strapping system.

I am currently making one of Will Ghormley's style of scabbard but the strap section is kind of vague to me.

I have my billets cut and ready to be riveted to the scabbard. I have the 3/4" straps cut.

Not being a true horse person myself I dont fully understand what the straps need to be properly attached. Buckles, trigger snaps, Dee rings, etc?

As always, photos are extra welcomed.  ;)
