    I've never had a custom stock made, I always seem to think buying one from someone who needs the money or sold the gun whatever was the best way to get a good deal. Well I cam across a pretty nice piece of wood in my price range. I think I have enough wood working skills patience and time to finish one out but would need the the blank inleted to fit the gun and then I'd do the rest.

    Anyone know who would do such a thing and a ball park figure on what it would cost? I tried looking a Wenigs site but I can't figure anything out there except they have some really nice looking stocks. It looks like they offer that kind of service but I couldn't find any price list. I've tried to call them a few times and couldn't get threw. Most places seem like they'd rather answer question on email since they can do that anytime they want.

    So anyone know about what it would cost to inlet a blank for a Perazzi MX8 butt and forearm too I guess? Thanks a million

    Just give Wenig a call on the phone. They are super helpful and can tell you the price to turn your piece of wood into something you'll be proud to show off

    Like I say I haven't had much luck with Wenig, I know they are popular and are a good company but I even tried to talk to them at a shoot and they dumped me for a customer who was interested in something a lot higher grade than me. Please don't flame me, I'm sure the other guy had a lot more money to spend than me and it was obvious, I had no rolex etc.

    You didn't say what kind of gun you have. An Auto is easier than an O/U, and a sidelock is tougher than a box lock. Perazzi, Beretta, Browning, all have their little differences.

    MArk Deprez of NY did my gun inletting. Very reasonable and quick turnaround.

    These pic's don't actually show the stock into the receiver, but it shows the inletting of badge into the wood. Very nice job.

    What's that little glitch on the left side of the badge?

    sliverbulletexpress, Have the stock bolt hole drilled also. It is not too hard to do if you want a straight stock but needs to be precise if you want offset in the stock.
