    Dockwiller is a renowned stock maker for both shotguns and rifles, his stockwork has been the topic of several gun articles over the years touting his craftmenship, you probably can find out about him on google.

    Doc's getting along in years and has slowed his output. Any comtemporay stock maker knows his work as he set the benchmark for a number of years.

    If your stock is complete with forearm, you're kissing 2.5 or better at current prices.

    Doc's entry-level set of wood will set you back pretty close to $5,000 and unless you are a repeat cutomer, you should't be in a real hurry for it and if you're looking for a "touchy-feely" stockmaker he isn't the one.

    What do you get for your $5k and up --- some of the nicest exhibition-grade wood you've ever seen, lots of really well done checkering and a beautiful finish that shows it all off.

    Doc's design seem to fit almost everyone -- if the stock was made for them or not.
