    We just finished a stock for a K-80 and the customer asked if we would feature it on the web. It is a Ladies stock and it is a very unusual piece of Turkish Walnut. It is Burl Turkish and it was a treat to finish. We spent a lot of time filling up all the holes but it really looked good after it was completed. The grain structure was very different on this wood and I have not seen Turkish that looked like this before. Thank you for allowing me to share this with everyone and I hope that the Lady likes the finished product.

    Ladies Man,

    The person that ordered the gun requested it with no checkering and we honored that request. There is an option if the person changes their mind it can be checkered at their request for no extra charge. The checkering is built into our price so the option is always there at a later date.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. While that is exquisite workmanship and a lovely stick of wood, that grip, to my eye, is an abomination.

    Dennis,

    You said that there was much time filling up the holes. Is this common with that type of wood. Also, did this add a lot of time to the turnaround or was is it still about 8 weeks.

    skeetjunkie,,,,maybe she didn't want her gun with scratches on it from the get go,,,,Dennis also did mine without and then later put the checkering on,,,,liked it better without,,,,to each his own,,,,but with the finger grooves, the smooth grip feels real nice....

    I wasn't referring to the stocks lack of checkering. Heck, I have a Lefever stock that was finished without checkering, so I'm not opposed to that sort of finish. I just think the black dovetailed grip cap, finger grooves, etc are not pleasing to my eye. As was said earlier, to each his own.
