    Papa Charlie,

    Very, very nice...

    I assume the checkering was also re-cut?

    Can you PM me what it cost you to have it done..

    Thanks,

    Stu

    Chris is one of the best wood artists in the business. No one can checker like he can.

    His work is graceful and functional at very fair prices.

    I have the stock to prove it.

    If the finish is gold, why do they still call them "Silver" Seitz? LOL

    Besides being an top line wood worker he also an excellent gunsmith with very good turn around time, Chris has helped me out at shoots several times with my 90t taking it home on a Saturday bringing it back on Sunday ready to shoot. Thanks Thom Rogers

    Both stocks are really beautiful and I am just amazed by the wood in the second picture. Can you give us some history on that wood and show the entire gun? Just amazing.

    Mine was Chris, beginning to end. I found the wood from a Turkish vendor who turned out to be reputable and Chris did his thing.

    Unfortunately the Perazzi MX 2000 combo will soon be for sale since by deteriorating back makes trap shooting a chore instead of fun.

    Here is a picture of the fore-end. Notice the fine line fluir de lis (sp?) checkering that is flawless.

    BTW I had asked for standard checkering but Chris decided the wood deserved a fancier job. There was no extra charge for the fancier checkering, that's just the kind of guy that Chris is.

    I've never met Chris, but I bought a 90-T HPAR from him a few months ago in excellent condition and felt he was fair on the price. He was also great to deal with over the phone. Dale
