    This was made by a friend of mine. A retired TRW executive with engineering back ground. Thought I'd like to share with you guys.

    Everything adjustable, including pitch, & matching cast. It also keeps the stock square while pushing through the table saw. The stock in picture was a 15" LOP Perazzi stock, cut to 14.5".

    Sorry for the poor picture, I was wearing working gloves using cell phone camera.

    Looks like a well made jig.

    Buy a bunch of old Mossberg and Remington buttstocks at the next gunshow to practice on, though...

    If anyone has a copy of gunsmith kinks their is a digram in the book showing how to make the jig. I made one and works great. It takes care of all the angles. Wild Bill

    Looks pretty well thought out, appears to be adjustable so as to be used for different pitch angles & maybe even other things not visible in the pic. I have a similar one that I've used for years. Ross Puls

    I don't see why it wouldn't work. Looks very adjustable and will likely make a far better straight cut than a bandsaw. Of course i wouldn't have the balls to cut on my stocks but you gotta learn somehow. It's only wood. There is more growing as we speak.

    I would rather get arm extenders, then to cut that beautiful wood. LOL

    I don't see how cast would be changed, but a nice looking accessory!

    I use a 12" compound miter saw. Easy and works very good with a 60 tooth blade.
    No chip out and a straight even gun on any angle.
