Unquestionably, Y'all've played with Micarta and Kirinite a lot more than I have*, so perhaps you'll know? How well would Ivory paper Micarta or an Kirinite pearl or coral of some sort work for stock inlays on a (percussion) muzzleloading rifle? "Everybody and their extended family" has brass or "German Silver"/Nickel Silver/Pewter inlays. I'm weird. I want something different. Real pearl, ivory, tortoise, whale parts, etc. sales are restricted, and out of my budget. Mastodon parts is out of my budget, as well. I'm also considering buffalo horn for inlays? Would Micarta or Kirinite be strong enough to use as a hinged patchbox cover? (Thompson Center "Hawken" rifle. I'd consider making a new patchbox with Micarta or Kirinite to replace the existing brass one, if that would simplify the hinge and lid spring.) *If you've used Micarta or Kirinite just once, that is still "a lot more" than I have. Thank you.
