    I'm considering saving to have a stock made for me at Wenigs. Can you give me a ballpark idea of the cost of fitting an making, plus finishing, a medium fancy custom stock? I know, my kids are going to sacrifice but if Dad's not happy, nobody's happy.

    At wenig's I had a semi custom stock made for my Remington 1100 a few years ago and it cost me @ $600.
    I suspect it's more today.

    Wenigs gave me a price to duplicate a stock and forearm for my SKB 85TSS of about $1800 using a select grade of walnut. If you're just doing a stock, it would surely be considerably cheaper. You might want to consider one of Wenigs American trap stocks. They have them premade for several different guns and might be cheaper than having a stock made. They have a good description, and all the measurements for them on their website.

    Don't count Dennis Devault out. H's not cheap but does excellet work. You'll be happy with the stock when its done. Look for Devault Industries of Ohio.

    Dennis travels around doing clinics. Maybe you can arrange to meet the day before and get fitted. Shotshell had one done like that.

    I was going suggest you fit yourself, but it's alot of work. The hardest part is knowing when you have a fit problem versus a shooter problem. That's why it's great to get a fitting before the clinic. Sign up for the clinic as well and you should be good to go.

    I basically did this myself with a year between the fitting and the clinic. Dennis had never seen me shoot the finished product, so he did a little tweak of the comb at the clinic, set my choke, poi and hold point. I'm a happy customer, I just like fiddling with stock fit myself. Maybe you've seen my thread...
