That will truly be a one of a kind gun. Where did you get the wood?

GNERGY, did you go with the heavy contour from Tim ? It looks just like my contour . looks like a real nice project!

P.s. From the looks of the photo you're neighbors are going to jump out of their SOCKS when you touch off that thunder stick

A friend of mine sent me the piece of wood. He knew I had made a couple of gunstocks and said that if I didn't make a stock out of it I had to send it back to him. Or make one like the one below that I made for my TC Contender in .223 out of Mesquite. He got it from an older gentleman that he did some work for, he got it at an estate sale 20 yrs ago.
The broughton barrel is the heavy palma contour.

Very nice. Composite stocks are great, but there is something about the beauty of wood that I like ALOT.

I should have taken a few pictures of the blank when it arrived. I was really skeptical about it as it was coal black, and roughed out with a chain saw. Looked like it was 30 years old sitting in the corner of the garage...

After working it over on the jointer for about 20 minutes, I was pleasantly surprised.

That will certainly make for a one of a kind build Tarey

Make sure you update with the finished pictures.
