Now, I know Dan is just kidding...but until I went to a blackpowder show and saw some of the fancy non-laminate stocks in person I could never understand the facination with them. I know from experience now, that there is no way those pictures do Claudes work justice.

:t :t :t

You are exactly right. They are not the best nor most revealing photos and the wood appears breathtaking. I can't imagine how good it looks up close. Exhibition grade for sure.

Claude, I guess I have to ask how much a stock like that would cost, should any of us stop slobbering long enough to think about buying one.

regards,
Dan

Thanks for the kind words.
Without sounding like too flip, its really afforadble. 450ish bucks gets you into that kind of wood in my Offhand, or my Classic.
My thinking is, has been, if its 200.00 for something that every website sells, whats double that to have something unique?
I mean most of the guys and gals here spend long dollars on barrels, triggers, scopes- the stock is the most personal part of the entire rig. The stock is the only thing on a custom 10/22 that you can tell at a glance who made it.
Each, and every Offhand I cut, is different. Very different than the previous one. Only in outside shape does it hold the line. The wood is always different. Unique.
My Offhand unfinished, without the upgrades you cant see very well (ebony, bedding, additional sculpting, long LOP, exibition Claro Walnut-and by the way, that wood is just friggin' wild in the sunlight-) is only 225.00 Add 50.00 and thats my idea of extra fancy-brass insert installed, drop in, unfinished. Add 100.00 and thats exhibition grade Claro or extra fancy quilted Maple.
Thanks again for the replies. I'm going let the air out of my head now so I can get back to work :D
Stay safe, go shooting, spend time with family. Enjoy Life.
My inlaws are in town this weekend so I am spending lots of time in the shop LOL

Even worse than expected. They has landed....half a day early no less. AND woke up my son right after we got him to bed for nappie time...grrrrrrrrr
Being a grandparent myself, I thought that's what we were supposed to do. :D :D Spoil 'em rotten and then leave about the time the melee starts. :eek:

BTW; That is a beautiful stock. I'm thinking of having you make me one of your Classics. I'll get with you later on that.
