    Looking for wood stock blanks, or wood to use for stock building.

    Curly Maple, tiger, walnut.
    I'm doing a build on a left hand Bolt Savage axis, with a 26" McGowen Bull Barrel.

    Can't seem to find a stock for it, so I need to make one.
    Thanks for your post reply.

    Curly Maple is also called Tiger Maple. What grade are you looking for? Are you looking for American Black Walnut? I have numerous blanks of each in various grades of figure. What are you looking to spend on a blank?

    High Joel, I thought after i posted that the Maples where the same,lol. my bad.

    In all woods I like a sweet piece of wood, I figure if i'm going to build a stock, I want something really nice, but not so nice it becomes a wall hanger.

    So I would not say the finest grade A you have, but somewhere between the middle and up.

    Not sure what blanks are selling for so I don't want to insult you.

    So I'm looking roughly in the ball park of $150.00 - $350.00

    I don't answer the phone on weekends, so during the week is best.
