Custom Wood Stocks
How many of you have had custom wood stocks built for a rifle and if you have who built it for you?
I realize in some ways time has moved past putting a beautiful wood stock on a fine rifle.
Well Iím going nostalgic. Iím getting ready to have a custom exhibition grade Walnut or exhibition grade Myrtle or Maple stock made for my 300 WSM LH Winchester Model 70 featherweight. Canít decide on which wood I like best. A feather-crotch or burl walnut stock is beautiful, but Iíve seen some Burl and Fiddleback Myrtle or Maple stocks that are beautiful. Too many choices! Any thoughts?
My plan is to have the featherweight stock duplicated right down to the checkering pattern, but in a beautiful piece of exhibition grade wood. Iím also thinking of adding a cheek piece.
Just trying to work out all the configurations.
Distance is not an issue, but the wind will make it interesting!
