    Ok back to normal. I have had many people tell me that all of your stocks are huge and I wanted to show that yes we can make a smaller stock when the gun requires it. Below is a beautiful Exhibition Grade English Walnut stock. The wood was supplied by Old Tree Gun Stocks. The owner of this one liked his K-20 so well that he requested the 12 gauge to be done also. As always thank you for taking a look and my thanks to The Crew.

    Beautiful wood, beautiful workmanship and a pistol grip shaped like a Colt Bisley. Thanks for sharing with us. Mike

    To Dixie Special,

    If you take the time and look on the web site under the custom stock page Perazzi Gallery you will see a couple of stocks that are for sporting guns. There is also a Kemen on there that is a sporting gun as well. I have always built whatever the shooter needs no matter the disipline. I get boxed into people thinking that I only build trap stocks and that is do to all the pictures that we post here for trap guns. I have been building all of Bill McGuire's stocks for over 10 years not and we are building 2 more stocks for his clients now that are sporting stocks. Some other folks in the sporting world that we are doing is Casey Atkinson, Lisa Sowell, Robbie Purser, Jon Kruger, Jan Kulhay and many others. Thank you for the comment and I hope that we can be of service in the future.

    This is what I like about DeVault Industries. Y'all don't make stuff just because it looks good. You make true functionality look good.

    First make it right, then make it pretty. You have the perfect combination of function and form.

    As a shooter, I would rather have a hideous stock that helped me hit every target than a stunning one that didn't fit. Here we have the best of both worlds.

    I'm with Pride. I've long been a walnut gunstock admirer, especially high grade. To me, the true test of a checkering artist is that the fine wood grain lines show through the checkering cut. First thing I look at when viewing a high grade stock...does the checkering hide any wood grain? Above is a good example of expertly cut checkering, IMO.
