    I want to do a new schnabel tip for a 1903 stock I'm refinishing. I'm having trouble finding a source. It doesn't have to be ebony, any appropriate wood would be fine. Also, what size should I get.

    Knife making stores - they sell wood blanks with appropriate dimensions for forend caps. And you can choose from natural, or stabilized woods if you wish.
