    I do, since I wanted one on my new rifle.

    I was told that while some of them looked really nice, carbon fiber is a very finicky material. Some of them took forever to get to look perfect, and a lot of people just were not content with the small imperfections that is unavoidable when doing hand-laid carbon.

    So, in the end, while a few people managed to get fabulous CF stocks, it ended up being more aggravation than it's worth trying to get the weave absolutely perfect.

    Very understandable if you've ever worked with CF before. It's not forgiving when you want to clear coat it.

    Go to www.wedipit.com and send the stock to them.

    They dip stocks and have carbon finishes available.

    I guess I was one of the lucky ones. I could see how hard it would be to make them, I actually need to send it back and get a little hole fixed...
