gunstock blanks-where to get good ones
« on: August 21, 2009, 08:52:33 PM »
I received my grandfather's 1911 Winchester '94 25.35 caliber lever action saddle rifle from my father before he died.  He had the stock taped up and we found out it was broken.  We need a blank to make the stock.  I really want to hunt with it to honor both my father and grandfather.  Any suggestions?
Ethical hunting isn't just about perfect shot placement.  It's also the knowledge that you are an ethical hunter and a true sportsman.  Enjoy the hunt and the experience, whether you shoot something or not.   Live every day as if it's your last.
There's a reason it's called hunting, not shopping

Boyd's offers some nice replacements and you can get them in a laminate if you want. I got the extra forends (rifle & shotgun) to match my T/C 209x50's grey/black laminate and the prices seemed very fair and service was quick. I still have to inlet and put the finish I want on them. There are numerous others that you can check out on the web. I got a Fajen "second" years back when I built my 338. Because it was a "second" and not their premium stock, I got it a lot cheaper and the imperfections gave me some good experience while I finished it.  @--0--0101

I've had the huntin bug for 49 years now.

Look on Ebay. Theres always stocks for sale, just have to check back often to find what your looking for.  If your just looking for a blank piece of wood to make yourself  I have seen several on there that are real nice pieces and they go for a reasonable price too. I just picked up an old .22 stock that I had been lookin for for $10, can't beat that.
