Yet another great looker. The 2 hickory stocks give a whole new dimension to the term "character". Love them.
Boyd's still offers all of their stocks in either .920 or sporter barrel configurationsAbso!utelybeautiful. Everyone seems to.make their stocks to fit .920 barrels. Does anyone still make them to fit slimmer steel?
Thank you, sir. I was not clear; sorry.Boyd's still offers all of their stocks in either .920 or sporter barrel configurations
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.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.
You can use stocks with a .920 barrel channel for any sized sporter barrel.Abso!utelybeautiful. Everyone seems to.make their stocks to fit .920 barrels. Does anyone still make them to fit slimmer steel?
You can use the same barrel channel, but you will get a lot more space around the barrel than normal, with a tapering barrel.You can use stocks with a .920 barrel channel for any sized sporter barrel.
Hello, this stock was built from lumber I was throwing away. The lumber was full of knots, cracked and holes. Some of it even had to be filled with epoxy. It turned out being a great build.I know you said it was from a piece of scrap wood, did you just happen to have it laying around or did you buy it some where ? Also do you have a bunch of wood working machines or is that mostly elbow grease and sandpaper? Your stock has given me inspiration for my build, but all I have is a dremal tool and a couple of saws.
What a beautiful piece of work!
I didn’t want to scare you off, but you will need a few power tools , unless you want to dig in with a hammer and chisel and some files. Years ago I built a Kentucky style stock for a flintlock rifle without any power tools, but it took me a few months.Thanks for getting back Larry I kind of thought I was getting in over my head. Looks like Boyds or Stockys but not necessarily a bad thing. Keep up that great work.
You probably aren’t gonna find a blank like that. stock 164 is three pieces of 3/4 hickory.Actually I have plenty of time and I am thinking I might. Are blanks available for a project like that?
Actually, A Drill Press/Milling machine with Mortise bits for the reciever. Half ball shape (different diameters) for the barrel channel. But that's a great piece of wood you got there!Is it for sale?
Honestly what does a stock like this you build cost a poor man like me?
I really admire your work.
Will you post a lot of pictures drilling out the action well and barrel. Thanks.
Can you cut out and make "skeleton" forearms?
