    All I got to say is thumbs up to gunfitter. Joe did a wonderful job on a piece of English for my 1100. Ive wanted wood that fit for awhile and Joe stepped up and worked his magic. Thanks Joe, the wood looks great!

    Eddie,
    Didnt take too long, about a month or so. Just got a Perazzi done locally and it took a lot longer. I WILL be sending my stocks to Joe from now on.

    Eric- The pictures look great! thank you.

    The job took just around a month from door to door including the shipping.

    I'm about two weeks behind on finish work usually about 3 weeks complete stock jobs are around 3 months at present.

    I schedule all work so there is a minimum of down time Joe

    MIA, I think Gunfitter would better answer that ?. He had to fix one of my mistakes, I fitted the stock to the receiver and screwed it up a bit, it prob added a bit to my price..

    Thanks

    MIA It depends on the gun. Type of inletting and what it takes to make the pattern. Labor on a full stock and forend no pattern making just using a stock pattern would be around $1500 for most O/U type guns auto's are less as well as some single barrel guns.

    My full jobs with a fitting for a custom stock built just for you is usually $2000

    The job above was from a semi inlet stock Eric did his own fitting I straightened out the contours added the grip cap Used my double diamond finish and checkered the stock. The labor with the finish checker and grip cap was around $600.
