    Our customer requested these photos be put up so he could see the finished work before it arrives at his place of business. The gun is a Beretta Silver Pigeon 687 Combo and the customer provided us with the wood. This was a tough stock to make due to the tremendous amount of toe out to the left that was required. The cost of the job was a total of $ 2,400.00. I do not know what he paid for the wood. Enjoy the photos and we wish him many years of great shooting.

    Steve,

    All the customer requested was that Cindy put on a pattern that she felt fit the profile of the stock and the grain of the wood. What she created is shown on the photos above.

    Dennis. Can you tell us why so many of your stocks are "roll-overs"

    I was not aware that Beretta made trap combos in the 687 Pigeon III grade. I've only ever seen the Grade II version of Joel Etchen's. .....Rick

    I can tell mia whydennis builds rollovers--- They fit and comfortable. Cindy deserves a tip for that one.I have taken classes from one of the finest rifle makers in checkering.I guess I don't have the patience or the eyes. I can put on a fine durable finish though. Marv

    Mia,

    The stock is not a roll over. The stocks that we build does not have cast. Cast in my opinion promotes recoil and does not allow the stock to be straight in multiple directions. Most stocks built today are all the same in configration, they are small at the grip and are then shaped in a V toward the back. This shape was done years ago to allow a larger surface to be present for the recoil pad. When we design a stock here we push the comb over to the side away from the shooters face in a straight line and slab the face side of the stock to reduce recoil. Now that the stock is skinny we add the excess material to the show side of the stock and this creates the look that you refer to as roll over. Clear as mud I know but it has worked very well for us and has been very successful for fit and rercoil reduction.

    What great work!! Makes me want to spend money I don't have. Then I would be afraid to shoot it as I might scratch it or some thing. Great work!!
