A customfirearm should do many things. Most of all it must fit the owner, shootaccurately and be pleasing to the eye. It should be acollaboration between the owner and the builder and as such it should bea reflection of the owner's desires and the maker's skills. I prefer to meetwith the customer to discuss fit, style, finish and other details that are tobe incorporated into the final product. Whatever means of communication is used;I follow up with a written summary of my understanding of the details involvedand all costs involved before I begin.

 

I have a good supply of blanks on hand,however you may wish to supply your own wood. Selection of the stock blank is avery personal aspect of the process. I would suggest that you considerinvesting as much as you can into the wood since it can not be upgraded later.English walnut is the wood of choice for custom gun stocks for many goodreasons, the most important of which is that it will result in the best stockfor you.  I generally have my stocks cuton a duplicator to an oversize pattern that allows me to shape the stock toyour individual specifications.  Thissaves me time and you money in the end. Should you require that the stock be made from the blank without the useof a duplicator, there will be an additional charge.

The price list shown does notinclude the cost of the wood.
