    I made this stock for a new sporter rifle that I am building.

    After I made it, I changed my mind on the style... so I am offering it up for sale.

    It is a laminated blank of Pomele Bubinga. Bubinga is an exotic hardwood from Africa, and Pomele is the type of grading given to the wood. It is a high grade with heavy figure.

    I made the blank.

    The pictures were taken in natural light, and the wood is naked.

    It is CNC inletted for a Stiller Predator long action, which is the same as the Remington 700, Stiller TAC 300, Borden Alpine, and all the other Remington clones.

    The bottom metal inlet is for a standard BDL.

    The barrel channel inlet is for a sporter barrel, 1.250" shank for 2" then a taper to .720" @ 27".

    I did not shape the tang area of the stock, I always do that after I pillar bed.
    I will shape it if you like.

    If you are interested in this stock, and you or your gunsmith is a little apprehensive about working with this grade of wood, I can offer final fitting, pillar bedding, and finishing.

    Asking price is $475.00.

    That covers the material and the labor to make the blank.
    You get the labor to CNC inlet and make the stock for nothing.

    PM me here if interested, or call me with questions. 717.805.0940 EST.

    That sure is a pretty stick! I'll bet it'll really pop once the finish is applied.

    I got to HOLD this stock in MY hands. It is everything it looks to be and more! If Joel hadn't showed me some other very cool stuff I would jump on this one. It wasn't for sale when I held it or I may not have been able to resist myself!

    Someone will have a VERY cool stock.

    Now I know why my Bubinga stock is still waiting!

    You keep blaming BB and in reality it is that you were working on your buginga stock. :D

    Cannot wait to see it!!!!!!! I have a few Macassar Ebony blanks (one for a heavy 1K BR rifle) that I cannot wait to see myself. Chuck Grace has one that we are doing in a Barreled Action (unfinished project) I bought from Ken Howell in 375 Howell.

    I didn't know you could even get a piece of Macassar Ebony that large !!!!!

    That is very dense and stable wood (I have made custom knife handles out of it)

    Never though of it for a rifle stock.

    I would like to see that stock when you finish it.
