If you attended the Kelso Deerstalking Fair you would possibly have noticed our stand or spoken with us at Pietas Venatores.
In addition to our current range of fine leatherware, we also offer stock restoration services that include the following:
A. Stock (Re)Finishing:
Stripping existing finish, raising dents, staining, colouring, sealing, filling and re-finishing with hand-rubbed oil finish to either a Matte or High Gloss finish. This service is not the average 'BLO' splash, but a 6 week continuous hand applied finish for a durable and beautiful coat that every rifle deserves.
B. Stock modifications:
You may wish to add an Ebony, Buffallo Horn, or Rosewood forend and/or matching grip cap, a new recoil pad, or change the profile of your stock, etc.
Here are a few examples of work as of late.
CZ 527 Polyurethane, re-finished to beautiful oil finish and rust blued.
