Thread: Custom hardwood stock

  1. #1

    Custom hardwood stock

    So I've got a new rifle coming and I decided I quite fancied a nice bit of wood for the stock but can I find a stock maker, no sir I can not! Plenty guys willing to make laminate stocks but non one who will do it from hardwood. I'm not talking about a hand crafted AAA grade walnut stock here but something at least to my general specification. Does any one know of any UK makers?

    Cheers

    Pietas Venatores on here will make you a stock. He is in the borders near Duns so handy enough.

    You beat me to it!

    I meant to add that I've been in discussion with him about a new stock & one of the interesting options was having the inlet/fitted area copied from an existing stock by cnc & then the rest finished by hand. It made for a reduced cost as less time & a quicker turnaround.

    Hi

    Pietas Venatores (Peter L) gets my vote too for refurbishing 2 rifle stocks for me earlier this year.

    If his refurbishing is anything to go by his stock-work will be very good too.
