That came out incredible. Especially considering the fact that you used a piece of wood that nobody would have ever thought of using for a stock. Your work continues to amaze me.

Hey guys, Thanks for checking out my work. This stock is proof, you donít have to have a premium piece of lumber, to have a nice looking stock. Iím sure thereís a lot of guys wouldnít own a chunk of wood like this, but thatís okay too.

That is one really nice looking stock. I was really looking forward to seeing it with the truoil to see how all the character of the wood turned out.

Yet another great looker. The 2 hickory stocks give a whole new dimension to the term "character". Love them.

Abso!utelybeautiful. Everyone seems to.make their stocks to fit .920 barrels. Does anyone still make them to fit slimmer steel?

Boyd's still offers all of their stocks in either .920 or sporter barrel configurations

Thank you, sir. I was not clear; sorry.

My question was regarding the custom stock makers like are displayed in this thread. As you noted, I can find standard barrel stocks from several retailers, but I never seem to see them from custom guys. I am guessing they are simply following the market and most customers want a stock for a bull barrel.

I guess I should give it a try sometime. The only problem is getting the taper right. I'm not sure if the taper is the same for the standard carbine stock and a stock with a 20 inch tapered barrel. The only barrel I have is the take off 16 inch.

My goodness that is beautiful- I love light/dark contrasts in stocks; even moreso than the typical starbursts etc we see in some of the higher grades of walnut.

You can use stocks with a .920 barrel channel for any sized sporter barrel.

You can use the same barrel channel, but you will get a lot more space around the barrel than normal, with a tapering barrel.
