Stolle Panda F-Class in a McCloskey Stock

This stock was easy to work with. Straight. And very pretty wood. Moved the action back half an inch to give the owner better trigger position. Also reduced the overall length of pull half an inch. Hand filed and fitted the buttplate to the rear of the stock.

Congratulations to Ron Deradourian! AGAIN!

img_1594Congratulations to Ron for winning the Rocky Mountain State Regional yesterday, using a Doan Trevor built rifle.  The original stock was repaired back in 2015.  Three weeks ago I re-barreled it with a HART BARREL that Ron had won at the Wildcat Match in March.  They made him the barrel and got to me in time to do the work for the Rocky Mountain Match.

HV Bench Rest w/ Bat Action 30BR

Received this piece of outstanding of English Walnut. That wasn’t quite big enough, so I split it down the middle and added a center section. Hand carved it into a Bench Rest stock, because I don’t have a duplicator pattern.

Laminate Stock for a Barnard Action

Here’s my current project. I had this stock sent to me.  I’m installing an adjustable cheekpiece. Note the gap at the end of the cheekpiece, it’s there so you can adjust for heel-toe, cast off and cast on. Will be making a 4-way adjustable buttplate in the next few days. I have modified the pistol to customer specifications.

Walther KK500 Action being put into Koa Stock

I’ve been tasked with the mission to put a Walther KK500 barreled action into a Koa Stock. The action is mainly designed to be used with metal stocks. Big Thanks to Earl at Earl’s Repair (card below). He was a great help when is came to a few technical question that had me scratching my head. Had to make a bedding block so that the action could be attached. The design on the action is extremely unique…. the 60 degree bolt throw and the loading port is to the rear…. it was really nice to see something this different.

Could this be the only KK500 in a wood stock? Have you seen or heard of any?
