I have a friend who had made his own cherry furniture for his Robinson M96, and is in process of making a stock for a bolt gun (I forget which one). I know he puts a lot of work into it.

instead of having another person make your stock i think you should at least try to make your own, the first stock i ever made i did using only a handsaw, wooden hammer, chizzels, and sand paper, if you have something in your mind it's usually better to make it yourself then try and explain it to another and actually get the desired end effect. at any rate good luck and good shooting:D

god I love making stocks...my current animal is an oak stock for my mauser. It's been quite the PITA, but I know the end result is going to worth all the headache.

My buddy wants a stock made from a chunk of the rampant Honey Locust he has on his property...I may just leave the thorns on it too...:evil:
