    We wanted to display the first stocks and forends that we have built for the new Blaser Shotguns. All three guns displayed are Sporting guns. The first is a Luxus model with beautiful English Walnut that the customer provided.

    The next Gun is a Super Luxus grade and features Burl Myrtle supplied by Mike Mann. This gun is for Bill McGuire and has the el;evated rib per Bills request.

    The next photo is the forend that has been oversized upon request. The factory forend is very thin and Bill requested we keep the basic design but add the finger grooves and increase the overall size by 1/4" larger than factory.

    The last set of photos are some old English Walnut we had laying around. This set has been made to the same dimensions as Bill McGuires gun above and this gun is for sale. Bill has the gun in Texas at a shoot now. If anyone is interested you can give Bill a call at 423-385-9108

    As always enjoy the photos and thank you for taking the time to look.

    Mr. BeerKing,

    I have two trap models in the shop now that we are building stocks for. One is an F3 combo and the other is a beautiflly engraved Super Luxus. As soon as they are completed I will post photos. Thank you,

    Dennis,

    I have a question for you. In your gun fitting expertise.....when you build a Sporting Clays stock, do you use a parallel comb or a comb with drop? Or, is this the customer's decision. I know that most all your trap stocks would be parallel, but trapshooters shoot with a mounted gun. I know that Sporting you can low-gun or premount. I have tried looking at these pictures and as soon as I think parallel, I say drop. I know in the past that you built stocks for McGuire and Kruger. Their and your resume speaks plenty. See you on the road this year.

    Dennis,

    That Myrtle really turned into a very classy stock and forend. The schnable is a great look. I look forward to getting mine for the Infinity in March at the Redlands clinic.

    Did I plug enough things all in one sentence? Excellent result.

    Matt,

    The stocks are parallel, but remember that I do not make the comb parallel to the rib line but to the bore center line. If a customer wants a drop stock we will make that for them but in this case the shooters that these were made for shoot an elevated rib and pre-mount the gun. As for Bill McGuire, Bill shoots this style stock in Fitasc as well as sporting. The first venue is strictly gun down and Bill also participates in the International Skeet venue that is also a gun down format and has not had a problem with this style of stock. Thank you for the question and observation.

    Dennis,

    Thanks for your reply. I am noticing more and more skeet and Sporting shooters going to a parallel adjustable comb stock. Thanks again!
