Mods. please remove if inappropriate!

I often hear fellows from my local area complain about how difficult it is to find a decent smith who doesn't have excessive lead times. I also often see this subject mentioned on forums such as this.
I live about as far from Hobart as you can without leaving Australia but in recent years I've sent a lot of work ranging from basic mods. or repairs to full on custom builds to Rolf Hey of Acme Engineering in Hobart.
It's a straight forward task to ship inter-state through my local dealer and I have never had a job take longer than 6 weeks including freight time.
Rather than waffle on, here are a few pics of jobs Rolf has done for me - I'm old and fussy and am happy to say that he always completes my jobs in a timely & cost effective manner.

I'd say it's 22LR.
The "thing" on the end of the barrel is additional weight to get the swing/follow through right - it's a 50mtr running target rifle.
